The Forest the Size of Anywhere

Forest The Size Of Anywhere encourages people, communities and organisations to donate to The Converging World's charity reforestation initiative. At a time when we need numerous changes to live on a sustainable and healthy planet, initiatives like this not only restore vulnerable ecosystems and remove carbon from the atmospheres, they also provide sustainable livelihoods for local people living in those areas. What's more, planting tropical trees is still one of the most cost-effective ways to do this - more than rooftop solar or the latest green tech (though we love these solutions too!)

Individuals can help by donating for themselves or a loved one in various quantities - for example absorbing a year's worth of your carbon footprint (£22) or removing carbon from a short haul flight (£11). This is a quick an effective way to maximise your positive impact on top of what you're already doing (for example, not taking that flight in the first place or washing your clothes at 20 degrees instead of 60)

Alternatively, individuals or groups can raise funds as part of a larger initiative with their community or workplace, creating a ''Forest The Size Of [Your Area / Organisation Here] by setting up their own fundraising page.

Absorb My CO2
