Active Puzzles plants 100 trees in Yekaterinburg as part of its environmental commitment
Active Puzzles is a brand committed to the environment. As part of our promise to respect and care for the planet, we plant trees in different areas of the world to offset the footprint of CO2 emissions derived from the manufacture of our wooden puzzles.
On October 5, 2021, as every year, the entire Active Puzzles team met in Yekaterinburg (Russia) to carry out an environmental day planting one hundred trees that will serve as an oxygen lung for the area.
This event is held annually within our organization and is a part of all the environmental initiatives that we carry out. Among other actions, we are committed to the Noble.land organization and its activities to reforest the planet.
Some facts about deforestation
According to Noble.Land information:
- 13 million hectares of forest have been converted for other uses or destroyed by natural causes. While you are reading this, almost 3 hectares have been cleared.
- Up to 28,000 species can go extinct in the next quarter century due to deforestation.
- Tropical Rainforests store more than 210 gigatons of carbon and deforestation is the cause of 15% of carbon emissions
According to the World Wildlife Fund more than 30% of the Earth’s land surface is covered by forests. In the process of deforestation carbon dioxide is emitted back into atmosphere, which puts humanity in a dangerous situation. For over a billion people get their food, medicine and fuel from these forests.
250 million people live in forests and savannah areas, which they fully depend on when it comes to daily food supplies and earning money. Forests are the natural habitat for more than 80% of Earth’s land animals.
