Deforestation is an ongoing environmental issue in Kenya. It is estimated that in the last 50 years, Kenya has lost almost half of its forest land.

PLANT & PREVENT
Keeping trees alive is as important as planting new ones. This is why we finance awareness videos on social media, to show people what we can do to minimise the impact of deforestation in our everyday lives. Along with financing tree planting projects, we also finance the protection of our newly planted trees.
Forests are a source of water. They form water pools, where water gathers and does not evaporate.
Deforestation causes both hunger and water shortages.
Kenyan children are starving
“The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.”
– Eden Reforestation Projects
One of the most devastating side effects of deforestation is hunger and thirst. Deforested land becomes dry and prone to soil erosion, which makes it very difficult to yield crops.
If a deforested area is substituted with monoculture plantations (for example coffee), the land becomes overworked and infertile, which directly leads to famine. Simply said, there is no farming without healthy forests.
Kenya has also been facing a significant drop in water sufficiency due to deforestation. More and more children are thirsty and dehydrated. By purchasing the Kenya bracelet, you join our tree planting efforts in Kenya.
HAND-ASSEMBLED IN SLOVENIA, CREATING JOBS FOR THE LOCALS ALL OVER THE WORLD
Purchasing a Treecelet bracelet does more than just plant trees. Our bracelets are hand-made in Slovenia by mothers that take care of their children at home. This way, they can work from home and raise our most precious gold – children. Are children not one of the main reasons to preserve nature?
The bracelets also provide sustainable and living-wage jobs to local people where the trees are planted. By financing tree planting projects, nature preservation becomes their mission.
