The platform dedicated to the world of the green economy launches a crowdfunding campaign to give away a tree to plant between Palermo and the rest of the world.
A gift that will contribute to the well-being of the environment, to the quality of the air and of life. Give a tree with Friends for the Earth is the crowdfunding campaign which, launched by the homonymous platform dedicated to the world of the green economy, aims to raise funds for the planting of trees between the city of Palermo and the rest of the world.
A campaign born in collaboration with the Guerrilla Gardening association of Palermo and with ZeroCO2 which will allow, thanks to the contribution of those who decide to join the initiative, to plant trees in the areas of the Sicilian capital where there is more lack of greenery and countries of the world in which the donation of a tree can be a benefit for the environment, ecosystem and local communities.
Through a small donation, made through a special channel available within the Friends for the Earth marketplace (at the link: https://www.friendsfortheearth.com/shop/it/ecoprogetti-da-finanziare/506-3706-a-natale-pianta-un-albero-con-friends-for-the-earth.html#/316-partecipa_con_-30_/319-dove_-palermo_con_guerrilla_gardening) it will be possible to adopt a tree that will be planted between Palermo and other countries chosen for the opportunity in the rest of the world.
“Planting trees today is an act of love for the Earth, of generosity for society and future generations. In the case of the city of Palermo, however, it is also an act of dignity to partially recover the damage caused by decades of indiscriminate exploitation of a territory, which from the mafia wars onwards, has seen the citrus groves of the historic Conca d’Oro disappear. they have been transformed into huge suburbs of concrete and asphalt, with the bitter taste of a low quality of life and social discomfort for its inhabitants ”, explains Max Serradifalco, creator of the Friends for the Earth platform.
So in the Sicilian capital it will be possible to give a tree to a loved one or a friend that will be planted by the volunteers of the Guerrilla Gardening association between via Oreto and the districts of Falsomiele, Borgo Nuovo and Brancaccio.
The trees in question will come from a Palermo nursery that grows the plants directly on its zero kilometer land.
In collaboration with ZeroCO2, however, it will be possible to give a tree that will be planted between Guatemala, Peru and Italy.
Friends for the Earth will then issue a certificate to all participants in the crowdfunding campaign attesting to the donation of the tree in the chosen area of the world.
