What is the Green Friday Project
If you are wondering what kind of event Green Friday is and why you may not have heard of it, don’t worry! It is an initiative that we started in 2019 to raise awareness among our users about eco-sustainable shopping. It began as a collaboration with the non-profit organization Eden Reforestation Projects which is in charge of planting, nursing, and preserving trees in forest areas of underdeveloped countries. The work conducted by this NGO is priceless, as it restores endangered or extinguished native forests, which provide food for villagers, shelter for wildlife, shade, medicines, and promotes soil regeneration.
Eden Reforestation Project implements climate regulation through a village-wide tree-planting program that deliberately focuses on local labor, lifting people out of extreme poverty and therefore promoting the social and economic development of the communities in which it operates. Their goal is to plant trees and reduce deforestation in numerous regions of the country, as well as to improve the economic conditions of the most disadvantaged communities by trying to revive the areas in extreme poverty.
The idea of creating this initiative came about after the fires that ravaged the Amazon Rainforest, Siberia, Alaska, and other regions around the world. For this reason, Bravo Savings Network decided to make our contribution to help stop a problem that is becoming worse as time goes by. That's why Green Friday exists and why we're asking for your support for the project. However, this is not the only way you can lend a hand to heal the conditions of our world: making wise choices in everyday life and making eco-sustainable purchases are small but important steps towards a better planet.
How does the Green Friday Project work?
After a long search for the most suitable partner to achieve our goals, the experience, commitment, and reliability of Eden convinced us to enter into this important collaboration, that we hope will, in its small way, make the world a better place. For every purchase made and confirmed between Black Friday and Christmas through our 10 Bravo Savings Network websites: bravodeal.com, bravosconto.it, bravopromo.fr, bravogutschein.de, bravovoucher.co.uk, bravodescuento.es, bravokupony.pl, bravopromo.be, bravogutschein.at, and bravokorting.nl, we will finance the planting of a tree by the Eden Reforestation Project.
That means one order, one tree, every minute of every hour of every day of the holiday season. Building on the success of the project in 2019 and 2020 where 100,000 trees and 260,000 trees were planted respectively, we are certainly on our way to making the world a little greener. By the end of the Green Friday project we aim to have raised sufficient funds to plant even more trees in places such as Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, and Kenya, with the Eden Reforestation Project beginning the planting process in April 2022.
With our agreed goal being 500,000 over 5 years, we need your help to make this a reality and surpass our goal. Our goal is to plant 350,000 trees!
Goals and commitments of Eden Reforestation Projects
The non-profit organization Eden Reforestation Projects was founded because of the horrible environmental situation in which numerous regions of the planet are facing. In Madagascar, for example, only 10% of the original forest remains; 40% of the mangrove forests in Indonesia have disappeared in the last 30 years and 75% of Mozambique is desert. In addition to this, there are the terrible economic conditions that afflict the indigenous populations, unable to recover from a social and economic stagnation that risks destroying the poorest villages.
Therefore, Eden Reforestation Projects decided to help the environment and also the local population, with a holistic approach to reforestation and economic recovery. As a first step, the organization employs locals to plant and care for trees, providing a fair salary, and helping families get back on their feet. When the environmental conditions improve, the quality of the water also improves, which leads to a natural increase in the productivity of the fields and the quality of the plantations, giving greater economic stability and improving social conditions. A large chain that starts from a small tree and ends with a real, important socio-economic change for the populations of the planet.
You too can be a link in this chain and make your contribution to the fight against poverty and deforestation. In connection with the Black Friday offers and the Christmas promotions, we will plant a tree for every purchase you make on our websites. Don't miss this incredible opportunity to make the world a greener place!
