For a sustainable future: Compartamos Banco, an ally of the forests
27 diciembre, 2023
In a joint effort to preserve our environment and build a greener future, this year Reforestamos and Compartamos Bancos carried out two reforestation events at the “Agua de Pájaros” Property, Communal Goods of Xalatlaco, State of Mexico.
On June 17 and 24, extraordinary days were held, where 389 volunteers joined the cause by planting 4,900 pine trees of the species Pinus montezumae and Pinus hartwegii, thus promoting the restoration of 7 hectares of the area.
Most importantly, the action did not end with reforestation; this was only the beginning. The community forest brigade, made up of people from the ejido and driven by commitment and responsibility, will carry out follow-up and maintenance actions for the specimens planted during the two years following their planting. This not only increases the survival rate but also creates temporary jobs for communities
dependent on the forests.
The alliance between Compartamos Bancos and Reforestamos México goes beyond tree planting; it is a commitment to sustainable development by enriching the landscape, raising environmental awareness, and fostering community collaboration.
Looking ahead, we see a growing forest, but also strengthened communities. Each tree planted is a testament to the powerful synergy between committed organizations and citizens willing to be agents of change. Together with Compartamos Bancos, we are working for environmental sustainability and resilience, where nature and the community coexist in harmony.
