Flokk and ForestNation


With the Tree Kits we would like to give all our partners the opportunity to commit themselves to the environment. Therefore we have chosen the Tree Kits as a gift. We have already planted nearly 3,000 trees with ForestNation. We would like to continue doing this and hope that the donated trees will not only save CO2 but also provide a livelihood for the local population.

Social Responsibility


The materials used for our products are more than 95 percent recyclable. In 2017, we used 607 tons of recycled plastic in our products. Our goal for 2020 is to reach 1,000 tonnes, which will significantly reduce our CO2 footprint.

Planting Forests in Tanzania

Seedlings will be outplanted in the Magamba Nature Reserve to rebuild the forest cover. In addition, the project will plant trees to preserve the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to the health of the Reserve. Trees will be planted along waterways to prevent future stream bank erosion. Fruit trees planted at the schools and on subsistence farms in agroforestry are a key element to the Green Schools Program. Besides providing much needed nutrition to the children and adults in the area, fruit tree cultivation protects fruit trees growing in the nature reserve.

Flokk und ForestNation

Wir möchten mit den Tree Kits allen Partnern die Möglichkeit geben sich für die Umwelt zu engagieren. Daher haben wir die Tree Kits ganz bewusst als Weihnachtsgeschenk ausgewählt. Wir haben bereits annähernd 3.000 Bäume mit ForestNation gepflanzt. Das möchten wir weiterhin machen und hoffen, dass die gespendeten Bäume nicht nur CO2 einsparen, sondern auch eine Lebensgrundlage für die Bevölkerung vor Ort darstellen.

Gesellschaftliche Verantwortung

Die für unsere Produkte verwendeten Materialien sind zu mehr als 95 Prozent recycelbar. Im Jahr 2017 haben wir 607 Tonnen recycelten Kunststoff in unseren Produkten verwendet. Unser Ziel für 2020 ist es, 1.000 Tonnen zu erreichen, was unseren CO2-Fußabdruck nochmals erheblich verringern wird.

FAQs

ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.

CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.

For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.

We plant in the forests of Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda, Malawi, Madagascar and more. All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More details about where we plant trees for each campaign are explained on the campaign page.

We work closely with our local tree nurseries to ensure bests practices are followed. They use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.

We mostly plant trees which provide harvest to the local communities. For example, fruit trees are planted around schools in Tanzania to provide nutrition to the children. Our trees also help avoid land degradation. For example, trees were planted along the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to prevent future stream bank erosion.

It takes 8 to 9 months for tree seedlings to be prepped for plantation. Different species are stocked up and made ready for planting during favorable seasons. For example, our Tanzanian nursery plants from March to June and October to December.

A Tree kit has everything you need to grow a tree from seed. We plant matching trees for every tree kit you get as a gift. We also plant matching trees whenever you name your Tree on ForestNation.

Trees connect you with Mother Earth and ignite your nurturing instinct. Growing something from seed helps you experiencing nature’s magic and give back. Tree kits also support our local Tree kit maker (1000 kits create a full day of work).
