What are the benefits of reforesting?
According to an article from Fast Company, countries are reforesting. Companies are part of an emerging restoration economy and focusing on restoring land. Not only does this help our planet, it also can help produce bio-fuel and food.
“Around the world, driven in part by the Paris Agreement on climate change, governments have made commitments to restore an area of degraded land larger than South Africa. Restoration and conservation can deliver at least a third of the emission reductions needed by 2030 to keep the global temperature on track to stay below a two-degree rise; restoration also has multiple other benefits, including protecting wildlife habitat and sources of drinking water. Government-sponsored restoration will happen in partnership with businesses, many of which are startups.” – Article from Fast Company
