This year Earth Day Canada has created a unique #Rooting4Trees Pledge and Plant Campaign. The idea is to gather pledges from Canadians to plant 25,000 trees in Canada for the 25th Anniversary of Earth Day.
On Earth Day, world leaders will sign the Paris Climate Agreement in New York. This landmark agreement includes a commitment to grow the global forest as a way to meet key carbon reduction targets.
The #Rooting4Trees campaign ties into the Paris Climate Agreement as part of an exciting new initiative where the global network of Earth Day organizations are launching a campaign to plant 7.8 billion trees, one for every person on the planet, by 2020. Earth Day Canada’s goal is to plant 35 million trees – one for each Canadian.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Pledge During Earth Month, from April 1 – 30, visit earthday.ca to participate in the #Rooting4Trees crowdfunding pledge and plant campaign and help Earth Day Canada grow a forest of 25,000 trees this April.
Plant Sponsor a city tree and plant the tree yourself at an Earth Day tree party event on National Tree Day – September 21st.
Making a pledge to #Rooting4Trees is an easy way that you can get involved and help with climate change. Planting only 25,000 trees for Earth Day & Every Day, leads to 35 million trees by 2020!
