PureTravel is delighted to be supporting The Virtual Forest Campaign 2022. Organised and run by the charity Explorers Against Extinction (UK registration 1177505) the campaign highlights the importance of all trees in the fight against climate change.
The Virtual Forest is a simple way to support reforestation, while also helping to highlight the importance of trees in every day life – it’s not just rainforests that help fight climate change – all trees are important.
Just take a selfie on your phone of you with a tree in your street, garden, park or in the countryside and submit it from your mobile phone.
To submit your selfie visit their Virtual Forest Submission Page
For every photo they receive they will plant a tree or distribute seedballs at one of their projects worldwide.
At the end of the campaign all the submitted photos will be made into a large mosaic image of The Virtual Forest celebrating trees from around the world. Tell us where your photo was taken, or the type of tree (if you know!).
The Virtual Forest mosaic will be available to buy as a postcard or poster, with all funds going to plant more trees.
Everybody who sends in an image will receive a digital certificate as well as a digital copy of the final mosaic image.
It’s easy to take part, you’ll be helping to communicate a simple but vital message and a tree or seedball will be planted on your behalf.
