Help us achieve our aim of planting 10 million trees

Uncategorized Jul 04, 2019

 

Here at the Energise Academy, we’re passionate about the health of people AND the planet.

Our Raw Food Fundamentals course is the perfect introduction for people wanting to improve their health through nutrition. And if we could achieve our mission of energising 1 million families to eat more raw and living foods, this would also have a significant impact on the health of the planet.

But, we’re not there just yet.

One change we made earlier this year was switching to biodegradable packaging from plastic, wherever possible, but we’re committed to doing more.

 

Our pledge

 We’ve teamed up with the World Preservation Foundation, and pledged to plant 10 trees every time someone purchases our Raw Food Fundamentals course.

That’s enough trees to offset your household carbon for around a year.

This is our pledge and so the cost will be absorbed by the Energise Academy, rather than being passed on to you.

We couldn’t wait to get started, so to celebrate the launch of the RAWvolution, we’ve gone ahead and planted 100 trees now.

 

Benefits of tree planting

Provide oxygen & remove CO2

Planting 20 million trees will create 260 million more tons of oxygen, and those same 20 million trees you’ve planted will remove 10 million tons of CO2.

Cool the atmosphere

The shade from trees can make buildings cooler in the summer and cut air conditioning usage. Also, by cooling the air and ground around them, can even help reduce the Earth’s temperature.

Create natural habitats

Trees offer shelter and food for insects, birds, and squirrels, with larger woodlands and forests providing homes for larger mammals, such as deer and

Provide jobs

The tree planting programme we’re working with is helping to create sustainable livelihoods to impoverished populations around the world by employing local people.

Combat deforestation

An area of forest the size of a football pitch is destroyed every 2 minutes. Planting trees and restoring vegetation in these areas contributes towards deforestation, which is of benefit to the environment and local communities.

 

Our impact

If we manage to achieve our mission of energising 1 million families, we’ll have planted over 10 million trees.

That matches a target the UK government set last year when it announced a new £60 million fund for a 5-year tree planting initiative.

What a phenomenal achievement that would be. And you could be a part of it. All you need to do is join the RAWvolution

It’s just £20.

For that, you’ll get access to the Raw Food Fundamentals course, the Energise Academy private Facebook community, and as promised, we’ll plant 10 trees.
