Help Us Support Reforestation Around the World
Ahe Great Coffee Project is committed to reforestation, and we are proud to partner with Ecologi to plant a tree with every purchase. Reforestation is important for many reasons, but one of the most pressing is the need to restore natural habitats that have been lost due to deforestation.
In Madagascar, deforestation has been a major problem due to slash-and-burn farming practices. This has led to the loss of valuable forest cover, which in turn has had a devastating impact on local wildlife .The Great Coffee Project is working to help reforestation efforts in the aquifer of Madagascar, planting trees in areas that were previously deforested for farming. This will help to restore the natural habitat and provide a home for local wildlife.
Reforestation is also essential in the fight against climate change. Trees play a vital role in sequestering carbon dioxide, one of the main greenhouse gases responsible for climate change. By planting trees, we are helping to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and combat climate change. The Great Coffee Project is proud to be supporting reforestation efforts in Madagascar.
We hope that you will join us in supporting this important cause. Together, we can make a difference.
Why We Plant Trees
This 19 minute documentary clearly articulates, in the farmers own words, why we've decided to partner with Ecologi to plant tress in previously deforested areas. We encourage to you watch it and share it with your family.
The video was produced by Trees for the Future, a planting partner of Ecologi.
Change can start with a cup of coffee.

Why Plant Trees?
Capture Carbon Emissions
Trees have an amazing ability to absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their biomass. Reforestation ranks highly in terms of climate change solutions. Every little bit makes a difference.
Reforestation creates habitats for animals, many of which are imperiled by habitat destruction. Trees also produce food for some species, including humans. This is important because if we lose these habitats - and the plants and animals that depend on them.
Trees slow water runoff, reducing soil erosion. This is important because soil erosion can damage aquatic ecosystems, and because soil carries polluting nutrients and chemicals into our waterways.
Where Are We Planting Trees?
We are proud to be supporting two major types of projects:
- re-establishing mangroves in Madagascar &
- planting forest gardens throughout inland African nations.
Additional Benefits of Planting Trees
- Trees return nutrients to the soil
- Trees improve air quality
- Trees reduce noise pollution
- Trees provide shelter
- Trees are a valuable food source
- Trees provide shade
- Trees support agriculture
- Trees are a renewable resource
- Trees are beautiful
Helping people help the earth
Who plants the trees?
Planting trees has never been more important. Not only do they clean the air and help cool the planet, but they can also provide a path to economic self-sufficiency for people around the world. Our partner, Ecologi, works with organizations that seek out and train local citizens to plant and maintain trees. By providing fair wages and opportunities for growth, these sustainability efforts help empower people and give them the chance to create a better future for themselves and their families.
