Our commitment to reforestation and poverty alleviation during COVID-19
Our team remains committed to poverty alleviation and forest restoration. The global COVID-19 pandemic has only strengthened our resolve to care for people and the planet.
Unfortunately, our employees living in impoverished nations won’t be on the receiving end of government relief programs. So how will we fulfill our Employ to Plant mission and keep our international team members safe? In addition to the safety measures we shared last week here’s what we are doing:
We continue to be proactive and require all of our workers to practice social distancing, hand washing, and we are even making and distributing homemade hand sanitizer.
We are continuing to pay salaries to thousands of workers, tree planters, and forest guards. We won’t abandon our family when they need us most.
