Can you really make a difference?
The task of counter balancing the extensive, pervasive and continual pollution of the earth for many, including ourselves, seems overwhelming.
Certainly we are all rooting for the Amazon Rainforest to survive and once again thrive. The country of Peru hopes so as well.
As reported at news.mongabay.com, “After nearly twenty years of discussion, the Peruvian government has moved to establish a new Indigenous reserve for “uncontacted peoples” deep in the Amazon rainforest. Yavarí Tapiche Indigenous Reserve, which covers 1.1 million hectares (2.7 million acres) in the department of Loreto on the Peru-Brazil border, is home to Matsés, Remo, and Marubo peoples, as well as other groups that have yet to be identified.”
We applaud that.
Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate. They remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store large quantities of carbon in their tissues. Trees and forests provide a habitat for many species of animals and plants.
Tropical rainforests are among the most biodiverse habitats in the world. Trees provide shade and shelter, timber for construction, fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having many other uses. In parts of the world, forests are shrinking as trees are cleared to increase the amount of land available for agriculture. Because of their longevity and usefulness, trees have always been revered, with sacred groves in various cultures, and they play a role in many of the world’s mythologies.
Planting one tree at a time gives us hope that we can do our part to help the earth stay green. We are not alone.
Actress Judi Dench, of James Bond fame, created a documentary about the subject.
She certainly has the credentials in the area of film.
A seven-time Academy Award nominee, Ms. Dench won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love (1998); her other Oscar-nominated roles were in Mrs Brown (1997), Chocolat (2000), Iris (2001), Mrs Henderson Presents (2005), Notes on a Scandal (2006) and Philomena (2013).
She has also received many other accolades for her acting in theatre, film, and television; her other competitive awards include six British Academy Film Awards, four BAFTA TV Awards, seven Olivier Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and a Tony Award. She has also received the BAFTA Fellowship in 2001, and the Special Olivier Award in 2004. In June 2011, she received a fellowship from the British Film Institute (BFI).
She now has a green project making the news.
It is a documentary following Judi Dench as she explores the lives of trees, discovering how they feel, how they communicate and how they fight off invading armies and extreme weather.
If only they could fight off invading humans.
Regarding her passion for trees the team at bbc.co.uk shares, “This film follows Judi’s experience through the seasons and her mission to understand the role of trees in history and the future. Judi joins tree scientists and historians to unlock the remarkable secret lives of trees and the stories that they cannot tell.”
Now this is a tree story that we’re certain you can swallow. Yes, eating and trees. Yummy. We sit under them all of the time, protected by their shade to picnic.
A talented group has taken that idea to whole other level.

AMPA, Fla., April 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Veteran-owned lifestyle meal company, Eat Right announced today the launch of their Eat Right, Earth Week initiative program. The company has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant one tree for every meal they make from April 18th to April 24th. Eat Right’s goal is to plant 15,000 trees during that week to make an impact across the globe. That means consumers are helping to make the planet a better place while also achieving their health goals.
Eat Right will send all proceeds to Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit organization that strives to become transformational agents of global forest restoration. Working with the organization allows Eat Right to offset carbon emissions from delivering their customer’s orders all over the region.
According to Eat Right’s President Sergio Valentin, “We don’t just take our members’ health seriously, but we also take the health of the planet we live on just as seriously. Eat Right has always used biodegradable products to help Mother Earth, but this year we wanted to do more.”
For every meal a customer has, they get the chance to help the planet by donating money to Eden Reforestation Projects. As part of their tree-planting projects, trees will be planted with the guidance of local villagers. They hire people in the local villages to offer them a consistent income to provide for their families. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests start to develop, and the dangerous impacts of deforestation start to vanish.
Eden Reforestation Projects is a leader in global forest restoration. Since 2005, the organization has planted hundreds of millions of trees in multiple nations across three continents. They employ hundreds of community locals and send their children to school and pay for food, clothing, and medical care.
Since its inception, Eden has planted over 485 million trees globally in Central America, Kenya, Mozambique, Indonesia, Haiti, Nepal, Madagascar, and Ethiopia.
Eat Right strongly believes that protecting the environment and establishing a sustainable community are corporate citizens’ responsibilities. The company shows its care for the community by making the best efforts in tree planting.
