March 21 is the International Day of Forests – the day to celebrate true heroes!

We salute you, Greenfleet Heroes!

On March 21, as we celebrate the vital role of forests in our lives, we want to salute the true heroes who are making our reforestation work possible: our supporters and landholder partners.

Every Greenfleet supporter is a true climate change hero who is making a big positive impact on our planet! Thanks to their donations, we’ve been able to restore over 400 forests and counting.

We were the first in Australia to restore biodiverse forests to offset carbon emissions and we couldn’t have done this without the Greenfleet Heroes. Since 1997 we’ve planted more than 8.6 million native trees – that’s equivalent to planting 1,250 trees every single day for 19 years.

When you think about how much forests do for us, then you realise how proud Greenfleet supporters should be about restoring and protecting them:

  • Forests fight climate change by absorbing carbon pollution;
  • Forests act as natural water filters, minimize soil erosion on site, reduce sediment in water bodies (wetlands, lakes, rivers) and trap water pollutants in the forest litter;
  • Forests provide vital habitat to native wildlife;
  • Forests have a crucial role in building and strengthening landscape resilience.

Congratulations to all the Greenfleet Heroes for championing sustainable behaviour, taking real climate change action and protecting Australia’s forests. You rock!
