Did you know that deforestation is currently one of the biggest problems in our society? In the last century we have lost more than half of the world's forests, permanently changing the natural ecosystems of our planet.

Natural Vibes has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to counteract this destruction and support sustainable reforestation in regions severely affected by poverty and environmental degradation.

For every pair of socks sold, we donate a portion of the purchase price to Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit organization that supports both environmental and socio-economic processes. Eden Projects has made it its mission to pay fair wages to local people in impoverished regions of the world for the restoration of forest areas.

Why is that important?

The regions where most deforestation occurs are typically very poor and underdeveloped areas. Locals often have few opportunities to feed their families. Circumstances force them to destroy their environment in order to survive, e.g. B. by felling trees for construction purposes, for agriculture, or for the production of fuel and heating material.

While this temporarily solves a problem for the local community, there are long-term consequences for our environment when forests are cut down and not restored. The effects of deforestation are dramatic as it leads to severe flooding, erosion and desertification. The long-term effects of deforestation lead to even worse environmental degradation.

The Eden Projects solution

Eden Projects begins employing local people to plant trees. This gives them a fair and steady income so they can provide for their families. Gradually, afforestation creates healthy forests and the harmful effects of deforestation decrease.
