Sproutl joins Earthly mission to create a climate-positive planet
Becoming carbon neutral, and influencing the wider gardening industry to create a climate-positive planet, has been a founding principle at Sproutl.
That’s why earlier this year we signed-up to support Earthly’s mangrove planting project in Madagascar. Mangroves are key to alleviate carbon emissions - studies suggest that they sequester carbon at around 2 - 4 times the rate of mature tropical forests. Mangroves also provide other natural benefits like storm surge protection and natural habitats.
The planting is overseen by the Eden Reforestation Project, which has planted over 300million trees in 8 different countries. 7 of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals are achieved from Earthly’s project in Madagascar.
