THE PROBLEM WITH DEFORESTATION
The destruction of healthy forests creates devastating problems, both environmentally and socially. In just the last 100 years, over half of the world’s forests have been cut down. Trees are vital for controlling air pollution, providing a habitat for animals and endangered species, purifying water systems, controlling flooding and erosion and also help to replenish soil with nutrients for farming.
EDEN REFORESTATION PROJECTS
Eden are an amazing not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers whilst reducing the negative effects of deforestation.
As one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects in the world, they hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest in severely deforested areas of the developing countries Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia and Mozambique.
While the primary goal is to lift people out of extreme poverty, Eden have also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.

As an animal-loving paper enterprise, we are aware of our environmental footprint and the impact this has on the Earth. We are really keen to give back what we take, and help to restore our beautiful planet.
For every two packs of LMD cards you buy, Eden will plant one tree. That means for a carriage paid order of £120, ten trees will be planted where they are most needed.
By purchasing our cards, not only are you supporting a small business, you are contributing to the reforestation of this diverse planet.
We are so thankful for your support.
