For every High Moon product sold we will plant a tree in the native forests our Palo Santo was collected replacing much more than we take.
High Moon directly donates to the OneTreePlanted Reforestation Project located in the Madre de Dios region, an area that has been identified as a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation due to unsustainable agricultural practices in the region.
By purchasing this incense you not only get to enjoy the benefits of Palo Santo you too become part of the solution.
ONETREEPLANTED REFORESTATION PROJECT : MADRE DE DIOS REGION
The Amazon is the world's largest tropical rainforest, spanning 9 countries in total: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana.
At 6.9 million square kilometres, the Amazon Basin covers around 40% of the South American continent. Approximately 70% of South America's GDP is produced in areas that receive rainfall or water from the Amazon.
Home to iconic species like the Jaguar, Macaw, Amazon River Dolphin, Black Spider Monkey, and Poison Dart Frog, the Amazon River Basin is a vast region with 1.9 billion acres of rainforest and over 1,100 tributaries — 17 of which are longer than 1,000 miles.
With the world’s largest rainforest ecosystem, it spans 9 countries and is home to almost 30% of plant and animal species on Earth. And by holding an estimated 90-140 billion metric tonNEs of carbon, its forests play a critical role in the fight against climate change.
Unfortunately, due to logging, unsustainable agriculture, and forest fires, it’s also a high risk zone for deforestation and degradation.
Planting trees in the Amazon Rainforest will help conserve habitat for its iconic wildlife species, provide sustainable livelihoods to local people, and stabilise our climate.
A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION FOCUSED ON GLOBAL REFORESTATION
OneTreePlanted is a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation.
Started in 2014, they have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year and work with reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help get trees in the ground using local knowledge to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.
They believe trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
