Preservation of old growth forest in the Mediterranean region
To compensate our forests

Preservation of old growth forest in the Mediterranean region

From April, Uvinum’s customers have the possibility to add in their purchases one solidary euro to help to protect old growth forest in the Mediterranean region.

After 4 month from the beginning of the project, we show you an infographic about the current project status. In conclusion, we can say that, until now, 695 customers have made a donation and we have raised 46% of the project.

Preservation of old growth forest in the Mediterranean region

According to Compensa Natura, an old growth forest is a forest with none or very little human intervention, which has evolved naturally over decades, or even centuries, until it has developed into a unique and singular indicator of what nature is able to generate in a specific ecosystem. The preservation of old growth forest is key to protect biodiversity, especially to protect many animals that are endangered.

For example, in Catalonia, there are less than 207 old growth forest, which represent only a 0,17% of its wooded area. For that, Acció Natura, in collaboration with “Selvans Program”, have the aim to preserve the last remaining old growth forest in Spain.

With your help 7.895m2 of old growth forest will be preserved and, at the same time, the biodiversity of the area will remain intact. Another reason to protect the old growth forest is that, according to a University of Girona study, the old trees emit substances to the air that are beneficial to our health.

Don’t hesitate, go to the Uvinum website, choose between all the wine, beers, distillates, wine accessories and gourmet products that they offer and, before finish your purchase, add a solidary euro to preserve the few old growth forest that are in Spain.

To compensate our forests

On World Environment Day Worldcoo has a new project to protect our forests!

In times of massive industrialization and urbanization all over the world, nature and biodiversity are highly in danger, and with them our whole ecosystem. Forests are known for being the lungs of our planet but yet we keep destroying them. Everyone agrees sustainable development is a solution to guarantee future generations will still have natural ressources. But what is sustainable development in concrete terms? Having a responsible consumption, recycling, advocating for the environment on World Environment Day (and also the other 364 days of the year!)…

Now the environmental NGO AcciónNatura is offering you a new way of doing sustainable development. It seems inevitable to consume, to build, to create waste in our societies. But what if we could give back to nature? The CompensaNatura campaign gives us the opportunity to make up for the place we take upon nature by preserving endangered biodiversity. 

By buying harvesting  rights for m2 of old Mediterranean forest in Spain or tropical rainforest in Equador you can make sure that biodiversity is preserved in these areas for at least 25 years. 

Thanks to our sponsor LetsBonus who’s fully engaged in environment protection along with AcciónNatura we can all do something to compensate Mother Nature on her day.  

The campaign has started, more information soon!
