"Zeroprint is a voluntary program where you adopt a tree"
Adoption of trees in areas that use to be degraded and now are in the process of natural regeneration.
We have the necessary transparency so that our collaborators can follow the growth the area, for a period of 3 years.
The ZEROPRINT is one of the projects carried out by the Comuna do Ibitipoca. Its objective is to mitigate the impacts caused by greenhouse gases (GHG) and contribute to the improvement of environmental conditions, such as air, water and biodiversity maintenance. Thus, we value the forest regeneration process in order to minimize the damage caused by human activities. The Ibitipoca Commune currently covers more than 5000 hectares of area, 99% of which are in the process of recovering the Atlantic Forest's fauna and flora. We seek partnerships with institutions, companies and people who value the environment, as we believe that the dissemination of knowledge is the key to changing the barriers that prevent environmental awareness. We have a calculator on our platform that shows your annual carbon footprint and how many trees in the Atlantic Forest would be needed to offset this emission. The contribution to this project would be through the adoption of native trees in this biome that are in the process of growing in our territory. We aim to improve the environment and the quality of life of people, as we believe that man and nature coexist harmoniously.
We use technology to monitor tree growth, soil control, parasites, pests and ants.
We use technology to assist in the preparation of the land where planting will take place and the systematic monitoring of seedling development.
Originally, the Atlantic Forest occupied more than 1 million km² distributed over 17 Brazilian states located along the coast. This area is also the most populated regions of Brazil. As a consequence, one of the most devastated biomes, as result it has less than 8% of its original vegetation. Despite the loss and ignorance on the part of the population, it is home to more than 15,000 species of plants, more than 2,000 species of animals, in addition to insects and invertebrates. Thus, of the 633 animal species threatened with extinction in Brazil, 383 occures in the Atlantic Forest. Therefore, it is considered a world hotspot because it is one of the richest areas in biodiversity and most threatened on the planet, having also been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and National Heritage, in the 1988 Constitution. The area that permeates the Serra da Mantiqueira, where we are subject, plays an even more strategic role, having been elected the 8th most irreplaceable protected area on the planet due to its rich biodiversity and shelter from endemic and endangered species. The Atlantic Forest calls for help, and your help can contribute to the survival of this very important resource for the planet ... Let's fight together for this cause!
