ONE FRAME – ONE TREE

ECO was “born recycled” in 2009, with the start of the program ONE FRAME – ONE TREE, in partnership with the NGO Trees for the Future. Since then, ECO has donated and planted a tree for every frame sold. So far, ECO has planted over 1.4 million trees!

“We have a responsibility to leave the world a better place than how we found it. Together with Trees for the Future, ONE FRAME – ONE TREE is making a positive impact not only on the environment, but for the people.”

– Alessandro Lanaro, CEO MODO

TREES FOR THE FUTURE

“Trees for the Future is dedicated to planting trees with rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future. We are proud to have a partner like ECO and we are thankful for their dedicated support, enabling us to achieve our goals.”

— John Leary, Executive Director, Trees for the Future

IT ALL STARTS WITH A SEED

A seed that is given to farmers and then planted in nurseries. Bare-stem transplanting workshops are held by specialists like Kingsley Neba. Farmers are taught by Trees for the Future about agroforestry and other sustainable farming techniques.

EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING

The workshops extend throughout the community and even to public schools, like the Ecole Publique Dschang Renka Michel, where, with the help of their amazing school director Heleine Tsopmo, children learn farming techniques that will help them create a brighter future.

FARMING

From the nurseries, plants and baby trees are transplanted into fields where farmers continue to cultivate and evolve their land and benefit from their improved soil and reccurring crop yields. With sustainable resources of income, residents like Anaje are able to feed themselves, their livestock and make a living.
