Tree Planted on behalf of the Shrine

Thursday, January 27, 2022 - 09:45

The Shrine of Saint Jude have had a tree planted by More Trees after we ordered some sustainable paper from a UK company. Our tree will make a big difference as does our Garden of Hope at the Shrine:

Tree planting
Our tree will be planted and cared for in one of our partner's forests across the world.

Carbon sequestration
Each tree planted sequesters an estimated 0.3 tonnes of CO2 - helping the planet for generations to come.

Community building
Trees provide farmers and villagers with a skill and wage to feed and house their families, reducing extreme poverty.

Wildlife restoration
Trees also help reverse the effects of deforestation for animals, wildlife and the planet.
