Unser Baumpflanzprojekt im Januar: Argentinien - NIKIN EU

Our tree planting project in January: Argentina

Together with our community and One Tree Planted, we are committed to monthly changing tree planting projects around the world. In January we are supporting a reforestation project in the Sierras Grandes de Córdoba in Argentina. You can find out more about this project in this blog.

A project with many ecological benefits

The Sierras Grandes de Córdoba region suffers from the effects of fires, erosion and livestock farming. The focus of this project is on the reforestation of these dry and bare areas. On the one hand, we want to make the soil more resilient and restore habitats for flora and fauna. At the same time, the amount of water in the surrounding rivers should be increased. The Polylepis trees also have high fire resistance and moisture support, creating evergreen areas. This green cover contributes to the binding of CO2and to local cooling.

Five project groups

Our project is divided into five groups. First, suitable areas are identified, around which a second group then builds livestock fences to protect the future seedlings and the general flora. The third group first collects Polylepis seeds in the region, which they then grow in their own nursery and hand over to the next group for planting. The fifth group is responsible for the regular inspection of the livestock fences and the scientific measurement of the project impact.

Community participation and local impact 

As always, close collaboration with the local community is central to this project. The five groups are formed by people from the local community. Thanks to the various tasks, this project enables the participation of people with a wide range of interests and practical backgrounds. Through its ecological impact, the project not only improves the quality of life of the people in the Pampa de Achala area, but also creates jobs locally. The latter also increases the economic attractiveness of the region.

Together for a greener world

Our commitment to the environment goes beyond planting trees. We believe in the power of community and that together we can make the world a better place. Would you also like to get involved? For every NIKIN product you buy, we plant a tree. Together we make the world greener - #treebytree!
