ORIGINS COMMITED TO GREEN THE PLANET™
From the start, we’ve looked to trees for inspiration. Moved by their ancient wisdom, by their ability to maintain and regenerate themselves, millennia after millennia. As alive as we are, trees are powerful forces for good that ground and sustain us. For over a decade, we have partnered with various non-profit organizations to plant trees around the world to aid reforestation projects and help fight climate change.
To further Green the Planet™ in 2021, ORIGINS [name of market] is partnering together with NGO Plant-for-the-Planet to support their children’s and youth's initiative to breathe new life into our forest.
In 2007, a nine-year-old boy planted a tree at his school. That was the beginning of a worldwide children's and youth's initiative. As of now, with the help of many adults, governments, and businesses, the children and youth have planted more than 13.5 billion trees.
The Plant-for-the-Planet children's and youth's initiative was launched in January 2007. At that time, nine-year-old Felix Finkbeiner gave a presentation about the climate crisis.
He outlined a vision in which children could plant one million trees in every country on earth in order to balance the CO2 on their own. In the years that followed, Plant-for-the-Planet evolved into a worldwide movement: 91,666 children in 75 countries (12/2021) are currently pursuing this goal.
They consider themselves a world citizen initiative that promotes climate justice.
The goal is to reduce CO2 emissions to zero and, until then, equally distribute responsibility of the emissions among all people.
OUR FIRST PROJECT TOGETHER
In 2021, to breathe new life into our forest, in Europe, Origins has pledged to support Plant-for-the-Planet children's and youth's initiative with the planting of 10,000 trees on the Yucatán Peninsula and the state of Mexico. Together with them, we are planting trees to fight the climate crisis.
Planting trees generates jobs, is good for biodiversity, and captures the greenhouse gas CO2. Trees buy us valuable time, which we need to use to reduce our CO2 emissions.
