WHAT IS 'REWILDING'?

 

It is no longer enough just to reduce carbon emissions. We need to actively remove carbon from the atmosphere. Rewilding is a process that allows us to do so. 

Rewilding involves planting endemic trees and plants to regenerate the natural biodiversity of the area, recreating the ecosystem that existed before it was destroyed by human activity. 

The 10,000 hectare area that Connecting the Roots aim to rewild is tropical dry forest. This ecosystem is considered to be one of the most 'heavily-utilised and disturbed' in the world, yet it has one of the most key roles to play in carbon stroage and water reserves. Sadly, there is currently only 44% of the original distribution of this type of forest left in the Americas. Read more about what scientists say about the importance of rewilding tropical dry forest.

HOW TO IMPROVE OUR RECYCLING PROCESS

 

Recycling is a process to change (waste) materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to plastic production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle" waste hierarchy.

Recyclable materials include many kinds of glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and electronics. The composting or other reuse of biodegradable waste—such as food or garden waste—is also considered recycling.[2] Materials to be recycled are either brought to a collection center or picked up from the curbside, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing.
