3000 Native Trees Added to Reach 17,500 by EcoMatcher – Single Highest CSR Contributor to Sierra Madre Reforestation Efforts with FEED & UPLB

14 February 2020, Siniloan, Laguna. Despite EcoMatcher Ltd. being based in Hong Kong and neither moving its mission nor office due to the region’s political and Corona Virus issues, they managed to plant 6000 trees within a one month period, remaining committed to circumvent the ravaging nature of Climate Change catastrophes in the Philippines.

Thank you again EcoMatcher, for being the single private sector Patron responsible for having planted the most number of trees in the shortest time frame with FEED since 2017.  “Integrating Tree Planting into your Business” is for all of us a round-the-clock affair.

As of this 14th of February 2020, EcoMatcher’s forest cover has a total of 17,500 native Philippine trees – becoming FEED’s single institutional partner with the highest number of trees planted at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG), a 9000 plus hectare protected forest managed by the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).

“The Earth and her recovery has no time or patience to wait for anyone. She will adapt, evolve and behave in proportionate balance to the treats and benefits she faces…. We know that is the way of Nature.  Companies like EcoMatcher – as we have witnessed first hand with other organizations pursuing increasingly robust Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or volunteerism programs  – will continue to thrive through any political, socio, economic or environmental crises as our dream, drive and determination keep us going forward in partnership, because we know neither of these stakeholders can achieve sustainable and positive change alone .” – FEED President, Ofelia Bakker-Mananquil

FEED has been planting with EcoMatcher since 2017 under its LIVING LEGACY program, and all we can say is thank you and more power to your advocacy. You have reached clients from around the world as far as France and the US to enable us to restore the Sierra Madres to her original glory.

An additional and increasingly in-demand feature of EcoMatcher’s tree-plantings include the capturing of individual tree-specific images, farmers/foresters/community planters names, mobile numbers and Global Positioning System (GPS) tags, using EcoMatcher’s unique TreeCorder application – which enables those who adopted these trees through EcoMatcher with FEED to remotely monitor your tree, from anywhere in the world.

NATURE IS SPEAKING (Narrated by Julia Roberts)

What can I do to stop climate change?

“As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.

The good news: We are not alone. People, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are taking action. We’re fighting like our lives depend on it — because they do.

In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” –  David Suzuki
