Reforest the Web is launched, a new ethical web design company that plants trees
By: Reforest The Web
Matt Unsworth, founder of Reforest the Web decided to use business as a driving force to fight climate change.
"I have been building websites for around 10 years. Over the last 18 months, after questioning how I can do my bit for the earth and leave it in a better place than I came in to it, I decided I could use my keen interest in business and services to power change", Matt tells us.
The trees that are planted provide more than carbon sequestration, they help to improve poverty and the quality of life for those involved, by employing local villagers to plant the trees that restore the forests.
Presently, Reforest The Web are supporting the tree planting project by Eden Reforestation Projects in Madagascar, where over 200,000 species of plants and animals exist that don't inhabit anywhere else in the world.
More than 90% of Madagascar's forests have been destroyed, impeding the Malagaysy's ability to inhabit and farm the land, as well as uprooting entire species. The deforestation has desecrated the Mangrove Estuaries, leaving them exposed and the earth washing away into the sea.
Reforesting these areas and restoring these Mangrove Estuaries reinstates an essential part of the eco-system. The roots of these trees provide anchors for the soil and coastline, which provides a boundary between the coastline and the land and protects against erosion.
Reforest The Web offer Web Design, E-Commerce Websites, SEO, and Website Support as well as Management for individuals and companies.
