In Madagascar, forest restoration is a critical issue- the country has lost over 90% of its native forest cover today.
This is a huge loss for biodiversity, since approximately 75% of its species are not found anywhere else in the world.
It is our responsibility to protect what is left and help to reforest areas that have been destroyed…
In Madagascar, forest restoration is a critical issue- the country has lost over 90% of its native forest cover today. This is a huge loss for biodiversity, since approximately 75% of its species are not found anywhere else in the world. It is our responsibility to protect what is left and help to reforest areas that have been destroyed.
Mangroves are an excellent forest type for restoration- it not only stores more carbon than traditional forests, it also provides multiple benefits to coastal communities like storm protection, water filtration and livelihood generation. Each mangrove tree removes around 308kg of CO2 from the atmosphere over the course of its life-cycle (approximately 25 years).
This trail-blazing project run by Eden Reforestation Projects has reforestation and poverty alleviation at its heart. Mangroves pack some punch when it comes to carbon sequestration but also provide a whole load of other natural benefits such as storm surge protection and vital habitat for many species.

We willl become Beyond Net Zero by 2025. Not only have we reinvested in our physical infrastructure, including high energy efficiency devices, carbon neutral energy providers along with our suppliers lowering their footprint offsetting the rest by planting trees to help reverse the climate breakdown.
Over 75% off supplied failed I.T equipment is reused.
We strip down and harvest for parts to help with possible future repairs. Contact us if you any IT waste to dispose of.
Cardboard boxes and supplied bubble wrap or paper packaging are reused by our sister eCommerce coffee company in Chichester. Direct Coffee Pods.
In Maroalika, the mangrove forests are also favored by native bird species. Replanting the mangrove forests is expected to bring back the once abundant bird diversity, but also restore the soil in the region which has been heavily degraded from charcoal harvesting.
Planting: A mix of four different mangrove species are planted as well as at least 10% agroforestry trees to provide an additional source of income to the local people. The mangroves are planted directly from propagules, and Eden have discovered that mortality becomes irrelevant as natural regeneration occurs (after the inevitable loss of some propagules). Typically regeneration exceeds 200% of the original number of mangroves planted – we know it’s cool. Find out more here.
Mangrove Restoration project in Myanmar is bringing back 4500 ha of mangrove forests in the degraded Ayeyarwady Delta, a riverine delta that has seen heavy mangroves loss since 1980. The project is being led by Worildview International Foundation, an experienced blue carbon conservation organization that have perfected mangrove planting technique in a way that returns a 96% success rate for young saplings. The project is tackling the root causes for local mangrove degradation by employing local communities in the mangrove plantations, investing in local education and infrastructure development and by raising awareness about the importance of mangroves amongst communities.

The Madagascar Mangrove Project run by Eden Restoration is one of our proudest projects. Started in 2007, the project has already planted over 300 million trees and created over 3 million workdays. The project is tackling the dual issues of forest degradation and acute poverty with their ‘employ to plant’ campaign that aims to provide fair employment to local people to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale.
