Planting Trees in the Amazon Rainforest

Plant a Tree in the Amazon Rainforest with Milly’s

The importance of forests to the economy and to the wellbeing of every one of us can’t be overemphasised. For one thing, forests act as a carbon store, and thus their role in regulating the world’s climate is very crucial. So, it’s important that forests are maintained and deforestation limited to the barest minimum.

You must have heard of the fire in some parts of the Amazon Rainforest in the past few months. Of course, this isn’t the first fire in the Amazon, but this year’s fire recorded the highest damage to the forest compared to other years. This not only poses danger to the climate, but also to the indigenous communities surrounding the Amazon. Scientists has it that the fires are linked to deforestation, with people destroying the valuable timbers of the forest and setting fire to the remains to avail themselves of lands for farming or ranching. 

Everyone can play a part in rebuilding our forests for a better future for all of us. At Milly’s, we’ve come up with a program where we plant a tree in the Amazon Rainforest for every order placed online from our customers. The is in partnership with a charity organisation called One Tree Planted. This organisation is really doing a great work in trying to restore our forests.

Basically, this is how it works; you place order with Milly’s online, we then contribute towards One Tree Planted to plant a tree in the Amazon Rainforest for you. This is you helping to get trees planted in the Amazon Rainforest in your own small way.

Milly’s produces handmade dog grooming products from natural ingredients; shampoos, scrubs, sprays, etc. We need as much help as we can get in restoring our forests, so every order counts. If you’re looking for hand-crafted and cruelty-free products for your sweet pet, Milly’s have you covered. Not only will you be getting a natural grooming product for your pet, but you will also be helping restore a part of the Amazon Rainforest.

According to BBC, on the western coast of Africa (Senegal), a similar movement has helped plant more than 11.4 million mangrove trees to date. The trees not only help tackle climate change, but also provide habitat for wildlife, and protect the indigenous communities from storm damages.

The social, economic, and environmental benefits of reforestation are well known. We all need to play our own small part in contributing to the quality of life and prosperity in the Amazon Rainforest.

Remember, for every customer order received at Milly’s, one tree will be planted.
