What if? You could help grow a forest. Well you can by a simple upvote.
Before I continue I must say thank you to all of you who support the Steem Forest Initiative with your upvotes. There are sooooo many to name, but you know who you are and thank you so much for making this happen.
A big shout out this week has to also go to the following for their very generous contributions:
Also I must must mention @artwatch for her ongoing commitment (also very talented) to making this actually happen and is the author of woody wednesday via @porn-watch. Also big mention to @pit-bullion who wrote a fund raising post to support our steem forest.
I have recently taken to writing posts that will enable reforestation in Northern Peru. Upvoted posts plant trees! Today we planted three Neem tree saplings and all thanks to Steem!
In the first step of addressing the issue of local deforestation. In partnership with Steem. I have started to plant native tree saplings around where I live. I have been able to do this with your simple upvotes. Simple.
If you liked this video, please also resteem to all your friends and spread the word.
We have raised a total so far of:
Outcomes to date:
- 33 native trees planted and 3 Neem trees.
- One local has so far joined the tree planting part of this project.
- 480 Peru Soles donated to EcoSwell not for profit: forwarded to their reforestation program.
- 90.195 SBD and 131 Steem held in savings until price goes up and helps for accounting (check my wallet)
- Creation of carbon offset directly derived for all Steem activities (takes a lot of energy to propel Steem).
- Building a socio-enviromental aware community platform on Steemit.
I donate 100% of the SBD earned on the reforestation posts (like this one) to the Steem forest project fund in partnership with Ecoswell. This not for profit has a reforestation program in which they have small garden nurseries in the village. I get lots of tree saplings to plant myself from this not for profit. This on behalf of all you upvoters. If there is any change to this format, as they might as this grows, I will inform everyone with a blog post on Steemit.
My first ever post about this: I won some steem on SSC, so I bought a tree and planted it.
Upvote a tree was a seed planted in @jaybird 's Steemit Sandwich Contest
