Plant a tree at Christmas!

Imagine… Imagine this Christmas… Imagine this Christmas after the announcement of the IPCC report.

Imagine what the report says: “We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe“.

Imagine people celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah around the winter solstice, buying all the things we normally buy as humanity.

Imagine all the creatures, depths, currents, flows many of us had the privilege to watch and see in the Blue Planet II. series.
Imagine all the plastic Sir David Attenborough is talking about towards the end. Feel it…

What if, this year…

  • we don’t buy THINGS?
  • we only buy a native tree or a resistant variety of a fruit tree?
  • together with our loved ones we plant this tree somewhere, where we can nurture it in the first few years of its life to make sure that it survives?
  • we lite a candle and sing a song by that baby tree, wishing for the best?

Imagine this… How does it feel?

Plant a tree this Christmas with your loved ones!
Watch Blue Planet II. during the holiday season together!
You will LOVE it if you haven’t seen it yet!
Watch it again if you have seen it already!

Take pictures and post them, use #plantatreeatchristmas !

Imagine a lot of people not buying plastic but planting trees this year!
What a difference we could make in just one Christmas!
Doesn’t it give you goosebumps imagining it?

What a joy it might be for the Earth, for the next generations, for our very own selves!
