Why we plant trees

We always say that Eatsperience Madrid was born to bring people together around fresh homemade food, the love for cooking, and the respect of cultures. None of this can happen if we don’t take care of our planet.

Many times you’ve heard from us the importance of being sustainable in our cooking choices, and now we want to commit a little bit more, set an example, and involve you all in this beautiful journey of awareness.

Eatsperience Madrid has partnered with Tree-Nation to fight for reforestation: for each cooking class you buy, we plant a tree. Well, actually you plant your own; after confirming your purchase you’ll receive an email from Tree-Nation with the subject ‘Eatsperience Madrid offered you a tree on Tree-Nation’. Please open this email to virtually plant your tree in the Eatsperience Madrid forest, and read all the details about your tree. You can also download your tree certification!

FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE

  • Planting trees not only offsets CO2 emissions but also benefits us by purifying water, air and creating better social conditions. Trees benefit the environment by providing homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate, and improving our soil.
  • Deforestation enhances climate change by releasing stores of CO2. Roughly 18% of global emissions comes from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e) which is more than the world’s entire transport sector.
  • Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tonnes of CO2, roughly 1/3 of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.
  • Tree roots both loosen the topsoil and increase the porosity in the subsoil. Also, the reliable source of carbon from perennial trees benefits the microorganism in the soil which binds the soil particles together improving the structure.
  • Trees also support large numbers of insect populations, with some trees such as Birch and willow supporting upwards of 300 species of insect.

BENEFITS OF PLANTING TREES

  • Forests support approximately 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. This ranges from small invertebrates to large mammals.
  • As many as 100 species a day could go extinct from the loss of closed tropical rainforests.
  • Trees and forests are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.
  • Roughly 1/3 of the world’s largest cities rely on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water. This includes cities such as New York and Singapore.
