TrustSwap Partners With Eden Reforestation Projects to Plant 1 Million Trees in 2021

Deforestation is a problem that affects everyone on Earth as well as future generations and it is an issue that the TrustSwap team is very concerned about. As part of the mission to help make the cryptocurrency space safer and more secure, TrustSwap recognizes that safety and security fundamentally depend on healthy ecosystems and a thriving biosphere.

Blockchain technology offers many ways to improve economic conditions and create opportunities for people but there can be heavy environmental costs due to the energy-intensive security needs of some of the most widely used networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

That is why TrustSwap has partnered Eden Reforestation Projects to support their important work.

Eden Reforestation Projects

Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that started in 2005 with a simple mission: Plant Trees. Save Lives.

They accomplish this by using the donations they receive to open nurseries in deforested regions and pay locals a living wage to plant seedlings of native trees and nurse them to maturity (~10 years). This synergistic cycle helps nurture and revive both the forests and the communities that depend on them.

The average cost to plant and raise one tree to maturity is only $0.10!

Eden has developed an effective model for reforestation with nurseries established in Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Eden has planted more than 500 million trees across its project nations with approximately 20 million trees added each month.

TrustSwap’s Contribution

TrustSwap has committed to donating 10% of all proceeds from the sale of Golden Ticket NFTs to the Eden Reforestation Project. These Golden Ticket NFTs are minted and sold for each TrustSwap FlashLaunch and offer holders the opportunity to participate in token offerings and airdrops from exciting new crypto projects. The Golden Tickets have recently sold for over $5000 each.

As of this Earth Day, 4/22/2021, TrustSwap is very happy to report that over $12,000 has already been donated to Eden which equates to over 120,000 trees planted!

And this is just the beginning…

TrustSwap hopes to continue to grow this program in the coming months and is on track for the goal of planting 1 million trees by the end of 2021.

You can track the progress and see how many trees have been planted with the donations from TrustSwap here.

This is just the first step in a partnership which will continue to grow over time. TrustSwap is glad to be contributing to this important cause but plan to do even more to raise awareness and funding for Eden and other organizations in the future by exploring ways to incorporate blockchain technology into environmental stewardship.

Plant Trees. Save Lives.

While times are tough for so many people, some of us in the crypto space have been doing very well in 2021. TrustSwap has changed many lives in it’s short time as a company and helped many people achieve their dreams.

This Earth Day, the TrustSwap team would like to invite our community to consider giving back and making a donation to a charity of your choice if you are able. Eden Reforestation Projects is a great option but there are plenty of ways that you can make a difference.
