According to Sustainability Victoria, the average Australian lifestyle produces 15,000kg of carbon per year. If that sounds like a lot, it is! Over its lifetime, a tree can collect and store 268kg. This means, we each need to plant 58 trees per year to bring our individual carbon production down to zero. A little tricky for most of us to do in our own backyards, and this is where Fifteen Trees comes in. We can plant these 60 (we’ve rounded up) trees on your behalf.
We know Australia is in dire shape; rivers are being mismanaged, huge areas of bushland are being cut down in Queensland, Tasmania has a new battle to save the Tarkine, Victorians are battling to establish the Great National Park. In recent years, we have seen some of the worst bushfires in living history.
It can be overwhelming to see such devastation. And so, we want to include you in something special and maybe help move you past the feeling of helplessness to one of action and community. We’d love you to consider becoming a Subscriber for the Planet with either a monthly, quarterly or yearly purchase. Trees cost $5.40.
