GOAL: PLANT 30.000 TREES IN ETHIOPIA
PARTNER: FOUNDATION GREEN ETHIOPIA
The Foundation Green Ethiopia brings new forests in Africa to fight against erosion and desertification, which destroy hundreds of cultivable hectares every year.
R3UNITE helps Green Ethiopia to reforest a desertified mountain in the “Gulemakeda” Area, 30km North/North-west of the Adigrat town, Ethiopia (14°17’21.6”N 39°27’14.1”E).
The forest is planted together with farmers and women’s cooperatives. Locals will be able to start production of wild coffee and change their lives. In addition, the new Gulemakeda Forest will sequester 600 tons of CO2/yr.
GOAL: CLEAN 6.5 TONS OF PLASTIC FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.
PARTNER: SEABIN PROJECT
Seabin Project is an Australian startup that produces and operates aquatic “seabins”, floating containers that collect macro and micro plastic worldwide.
R3UNITE helps Seabin Project to finance and bring new seabins in the Mediterranean Sea. The estimated impact of our donation is measured by the company with 6.5 tons of plastic debris removed from the sea or 1 million liters of water filtered, the equivalent of 410 olympic swimming pools.
Through the removal of microplastics from the oceans, the seabins will reduce and slow down the pollution of water with concrete benefits on the health of fish, algae and other local life forms.
