WE LOVE A GREAT STORY, record-breaking reforestation.png

In a record-breaking feat, 1.5 million volunteers in India planted over 110 million trees in just 12 hours. The reforestation was part of India's Paris climate conference pledge to increase the size of their forests to 95 million hectares by 2030.

Ken Chaplin is a Canadian who currently holds the world record for an individual planting the most trees in a single day - he planted 15,170 red pine seedlings. Eight years later, over 90% of them are still thriving.

Not only do such events help clean up our atmosphere, a significant amount of the world's reforestation is used for paper production. In Europe alone between 2005 and 2015, forests grown to supply the paper industry grew by an area the size of Switzerland and every day they grow by the size of 1500 football fields. None of these forests have replaced natural forests, they're all new trees.

Paper is one of the few truly sustainable products in the world today.
