tter what side of the fence you sit on regarding climate change, surely we can all agree that planting more trees in the world can’t be a bad thing?
We’re all good with that yeah?
After all, more trees means more CO2 being sucked out of the atmosphere and more oxygen pumped back out.
Hardly a bad thing.
Well there’s something that crossed my timeline last week about a new challenge ‘Train For Trees’ where a fitness app is running a 1 week challenge – this week to be exact – where they will plant one tree for every 2000 calories burned by people who participate in it.
Kinda cool idea don’t you think?
They want to plant a maximum of 3000 trees which means people who join in need to burn 6 million calories.
That’s a fair whack.
This is all part of a challenge where a YouTuber agreed to a challenge in October to raise $20 million so they could plant 20 million trees by the end of the year.
He’s at $16 million already so he’s a real chance and even if he doesn’t make it at lest he’s having a crack.
The campaign got a bit of publicity when Elon Musk threw some coin behind it and has grown from there (no pun intended).
