The beginning of this new year is marked by the start of our new project that will help to protect our beloved forest and trees. Starting this January, you will help by planting trees each time you buy kratom from Bikhuk. Our company signed up with the United Nation Environment Programme to replant as much as 10 hectares in the area of central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Bikhuk's CEO, Ms Putri Wulan, has pledged to plant the first 3000 trees before the beginning of this year's wet season. By replanting various native species, including the Mitragyna Speciosa and other rare trees, we will try, among others, to preserve the biodiversity that is so unique in this area. On the other side we will closely work together with the native population to ensure protection by offering livelihood alternatives.
The people of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have found a pretty remarkable way to lure people into buying trees and plant them in Indonesia. In fact, all the users have to do is to donate money and wait for the tree to be planted in the Sebangau National Forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. What's interesting is that after buying the tree you also get a KML file that lets you import a new location in Google Earth.
The act of selecting, planting and caring for a tree can also sends a powerful message that you care about the environment. These acts are also excellent ways to bring people together and focus on environmental issues. For these reasons, there are many other tree-planting initiatives. The Green Wave campaign recognizes and supports these other excellent initiatives. Your tree planting activities can feed into The Green Wave campaign and some of the other tree-planting campaigns listed below.
We are comprised of dedicated individuals, who feel that it is crucial that all carbon reducing initiatives deliver absolute and verifiable reductions in global carbon emissions, regardless if these are voluntary or regulated entities. In this quickly developing industry, it is understandable that regulations and mechanisms for verification are still at an infancy stage. It may still be several years before the world has a clear framework towards carbon neutrality and reduction. The combined efforts of concerned governments internationally, have been commendable.
