Our reforestation program
For each order, Ecocentric plants one tree
But in addition to these daily actions, we have been involved alongside the Planète Urgence organization since our creation in 2009 with our 1 order = 1 tree program.
Thanks to you, we have already planted tens of thousands of trees!
ABOUT PLANÈTE URGENCE

The reforestation program
The objectives of the reforestation program in Indonesia are multiple:
- Restoration of a unique ecosystem
- Fight against climate change
- Economic development of populations
- Protection of endangered endemic species
With loss rates exceeding those of tropical forests and coral reefs, mangroves are currently the most threatened ecosystem in the world. In Indonesia, the Ministry of Forests estimates that each year between 50,000 and 100,000 hectares of mangroves are lost.
With the largest area of mangroves in the world, Indonesia is a key country in the fight against global warming and environmental protection. The mangrove is a unique ecosystem which not only represents a formidable reservoir of biological diversity, but also concentrates very significant quantities of greenhouse gases.
Planète Urgence's action makes it possible to stem this massive destruction of mangroves and its dramatic consequences: rise in sea level, erosion of the coastline, flooding seriously threatening the habitat of local communities...
Planète Urgence's reforestation program also has a social impact: the association locally supports the development of a sustainable aquaculture model in basins reforested in previous years to encourage residents to preserve the reconstituted mangrove swamp.
Thank you !
Through your loyalty and your trust, you bring this partnership to life, which is so important to us and which allows thousands of trees to be replanted each year.
Many of you also contribute directly to this program by planting a second tree for each of your orders. We would therefore like to thank you warmly for your commitment and your generosity.
