After visiting our tree planting sites in Majunga and meeting the people who make it happen (see 1st Madagascar Blog) we got the chance to experience snippets of what the country could be if it were to be restored to its natural environment. We saw local wildlife, trekked through protected, primary forests and heard from the Malagasy locals.
2 years ago, in the first infant months of our business Little Difference, we had an idea to plant 1 tree for every single greeting card we sold. From the 1st of January 2016 we started doing just that. These trees are not just planted, but raised and protected to maturity to become permanent, indigenous reforested areas of Madagascar. We thought this alone was pretty special... Until we went to see, and feel the true impact for ourselves in May this year.
