There is only 7% left of the Atlantic Rainforest and GAF intends to replant the 93% that has been destroyed.
The Growing AIr Foundation is a new foundation set up to revive degraded and destroyed forests around the world beginning with the Atlantic Rainforest. The intention is to replant what has been destroyed while at the same time providing a sustainable livelihood for the local population. Our rain forests have been called the lungs of the earth. They not only provide oxygen they also are natural CO2 sinks. They also soak up NO2, SO2 and fine particulate matter. The forests also are home to an enormous biodiversity. We must begin planting to bring help bring the environment back into balance. Our rain forests are part and parcel of the entire living system we call earth.
