Together with our community and our partner One Tree Planted, we are committed to tree planting campaigns around the world. In May, we're supporting the reforestation of mangrove forests in Bangladesh. Learn why the project is so important and what you can do in this blog.
Mangroves play an important ecological role and provide habitat for many animals and plants. They protect coastlines from erosion, tsunamis and storms and serve as carbon sinks. But due to climate change, they are under severe threat.

Threatened ecosystems: The Sundarbans Mangroves
The Sundarbans mangroves, the largest mangrove ecosystem in the world, is particularly threatened. Our goal is to counteract the disappearance of the mangroves by actively planting and thus preserving this unique ecosystem for future generations.

Protect coastal communities
Our May tree planting project provides an opportunity to conserve the Sundarbans while creating new livelihoods for coastal residents. We are following the nine steps for Community-Based Ecological Mangrove Restoration (CBEMR) to ensure long-term benefits for local communities. This includes, for example, education and training to provide residents with the knowledge and skills they need to protect and sustainably use mangrove forests.
