Deforestation is the second-leading cause of climate change
... and it's often human-driven. Forests are disappearing at an alarming rate, which has a devastating impact on wildlife and ecosystems. At our current rate of destruction, only 10% of rainforest will survive beyond 2030.
Why trees? Fact is, we need them.
Trees are the planet's natural air purifiers. They absorb carbon dioxide emissions and release oxygen in its place, reducing global warming.
Trees also provide food, medicine, fuel and jobs, all essential aspects of our lives. Deforestation takes this away by exacerbating drought conditions, soil erosion and flooding.
Simply put, without trees, we wouldn't be here.
Reforestation is the answer.
By partnering with Eden Reforestation Projects, Keika is taking action to help restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty. Locals around the world are given fair wage employment to plant trees in their communities, benefiting both the environment and the economy.
69,218+ Trees Planted since 2019

Trees absorb our carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases, reducing global warming. They provide food, medicine, fuel and jobs. Deforestation exacerbates drought conditions, making food production impossible.
Trees provide oxygen, improve air quality, protect us against different climates while conserving water, preserving soil and supporting wildlife... they literally do it all.
Without trees, we wouldn't be here.
