TAG Media is proud to be a part of the Climate Action Workforce by Ecologi. In early 2023, we pledged to plant 5 trees per team member per month and run monthly challenges within the company to plant even more to show our support of reforestation and certified carbon avoidance projects around the world.
Mangrove planting in Madagascar
Mangroves are a small, coastal tree species that occur worldwide in the tropics and subtropics, and are particularly proficient at absorbing carbon and storing it in their extensive root systems underground. Carbon stored in mangrove forests is considered blue carbon, because it is stored on the coast. In addition to their excellent carbon sequestration abilities, mangroves provide excellent flood and storm protection to the coastal area itself.
Our mangrove restoration efforts in Madagascar support planting locations on parcels of coastal land to the North West of the island, near Mahajanga. Whilst the combined restoration area is wider, to date we have funded mangrove planting spanning an area of around 600 hectares of this degraded coastal region – and as each small pocket of land is planted, our community’s funding is directed to support further planting, further along the coast.
TAG Media is proud to support mangrove planting in this part of Madagascar. It is estimated that during the full project period the Climate Action Workforce community will have funded the planting of 13 million mangrove trees here.
Planting forest gardens in Tanzania
The trees that are planted in the Forest Gardens in Iringa, a region in the south of Tanzania which stretches along the ridges and valleys of the Udzungwa Mountains, revitalise the local landscape and help create new business and market opportunities for the farmers, which enables them to diversify their income and be more resilient to climate change. TAG Media is proud to support the Iringa Forest Garden project, which will run through to December 2023 and will plant upwards of 1.8 million trees by its conclusion. It will involve around 600 local farmers.
