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.

Report of funding and monitoring the Project “Care at Home”

The project of ´Care at home´ by the foundation “Friends for the elderly” , was the first project we did with LetsBonus in February 2014 and with which initiated their intention to work closely with #LetsBonusActúa program. Thanks to the solidarity of its members, who managed to raise € 1,015 in one month. Here we present the report of investments and everything that was made possible due to the help received.

  • 67 gatherings with 3 volunteers at the home of an elderly person to discuss providing personal support and dynamic activities for them.
  • 450 telephone calls to the elderly person to know how they are and for a follow up.
  • 51 Carers in the individuals home for two hours to give them emotional support and to build stronger ties with them.

One of the commitments from Worldcoo is to support the transparency of donations and so we track every € donated by the users of our committed e-commerce service. In this case, 586 seniors have benefited from the program activities. This project is great way of providing emotional support to elderly people living alone and also to avoid the social isolation that affects a umber of people.
