Join JourneyWoman and TreeSisters.org to help reforest the Earth by planting 100,000 trees by 2025
Trees are the lungs of our planet and every effort to improve our environment serves all humankind
Our goal is to plant 100,000 trees by Earth Day 2025.
This will contribute to growing initiatives in:
- the rain forests of Brazil
- the upland forests of Mount Kenya
- Mount Bamboutos in Cameroon
- Khasi Hills in North East India
- mangroves in Madagascar and Mozambique
The Covid-19 pandemic teaches us that our actions have profound consequences, good and bad. We’ve adopted new behaviours, reexamined our role in making our communities safe and healthy and witnessed a spirit of renewal that is a testament to our resiliency.
Ironically, our Earth is fast becoming a grateful beneficiary of this global crisis. The resurgence of wildlife, the healing of water byways and the abatement of urban pollution is evidence that healing is pervasive.
The lessons learned must not be ignored, allowing a return to the past but rather applied to further our acts of generosity in pursuit of our recovery.
How you can help us reach our goal:
Make a donation to the JourneyWoman Tree Sisters Fund and make a contribution here.
Every time someone subscribes to our magazine, we’ll make a donation on their behalf. Refer JourneyWoman.com to the amazing women in your life and ask them to Subscribe to our newsletter.
When you register for events on our website (free or paid), we will ask you to make a small donation of $1.99 to help us plant a tree.
We can do this, together! Thank you!
Why this is important to me
The JourneyWoman community has a long and reverent appreciation for responsible travel and the preservation of our precious planet. Our credo of Authentic Travel is rooted in the belief that we must all commit to make the world a better place to experience, enjoy and share.
In times of stress and anxiety, we find solace in nature. This year, so many of us developed a renewed appreciation for nature with our travels at home. A walk in the forest, being among the trees can shift our perspective and our optimism.

Facts about Deforestation
Forests cover 30% of the earth’s land
20% of the world’s oxygen is produced in the Amazon forest
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest are lost each year
One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second
The rate of deforestation equals to loss of 20 football fields every minute
If the current rate of deforestation continues, it will take less than 100 years to destroy all the rainforests on the earth.
Up to 28,000 species are expected to become extinct by the next quarter of the century due to deforestation
1.6 billion people across the globe depend on forest products for their livelihoods there by adding more to deforestation
