Hello! My name is Luc, I am a student in the city of Rotterdam. I created Participlant with the goal of planting as many trees as possible to fight climate change. To realise this, I partnered up with the amazing people of One Tree Planted to plant trees in Australia, Ethiopia, and Brazil. Learn more about One Tree Planted and the projects I support here. In total, 75% of the earnings will be allocated to plant trees, the remaining 25% is used to cover operational costs. Every dollar allocated for tree planting will plant one tree.If you like this plant-based way of advertising, please follow Participlant on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter.

The Atlantic Forest, also known as Mata Atlantica, once spanned 130 million hectares across Brazil. Now, this tropical rainforest ecosystem covers only about 12% of its original area and is home to more than half of the country’s population. Centuries of deforestation for timber, sugar cane, coffee, cattle ranching, and urban sprawl have contributed to its current state.
This tree planting project links environmental restoration with income generation, providing the local community with the knowledge and tools to conserve their land, protect their water supply, and create a sustainable, diverse economy for future generations. It focuses on the Loka Bedelcha Kebele in Southern Ethiopia, and the Amhara region in the North. Both are areas where environmental degradation is threatening livelihoods and biodiversity. These regions face challenges like dry and unpredictable climates, poor soil fertility, ineffective land management practices, and lenient resource regulations.
Australia experienced one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year’s fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable – 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed.
