It has come to that time of the year in which Miro & Makauri contribute funds to the ‘United Nations’ Eastbourne branch for their tree planting scheme in Equatorial Uganda. In the last 12 months Miro & Makauri have been fortunate enough to grow as a business, and in turn we have increased the funds to help the efforts of UN ‘Eastbourne Branch and their environmental work in Uganda, Africa.
The financial contribution is an effort and responsibility on our part to become Carbon Neutral and align ourselves with other drives and commitments Miro & Makauri are making to become more responsible & sustainable in our business activities.
There is now of course a growing awareness of the ‘climate emergency’ and this year Miro & Makauri are funding the planting of 720 tropical hardwood trees: 240 Mvule, 240 Musizi and 240 Terminalia species.
The different tree species provide variation in their uses for the local people as well as for their carbon capture efficiency… The Mvule in particular is exceptional in its carbon capture – you can learn more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSOHltnI2GE
The project is headed by Ian Elgie, FRGS, Chair, United Nations Association, Eastbourne “Thank you Makauri for your offer to increase your donation this year to our project. It has been growing successfully and we are now able to plant and monitor around 20,000 trees, with surplus funds directed to other projects such as cleaner and less polluting cooking stoves for the local population”
Miro & Makauri will continue to help support this United Nation’s programme and we will have other news in the coming weeks about other exciting projects we are getting involved with that help other initiatives grow as we ourselves grow as a business.
