Since 2017, Market Taiwan has worked with Taiwan’s Forestry Bureau in an effort to help with a massive reforestation initiative. And help they did! The Market Taiwan team donated nearly $400,000 and planted more than 45,000 trees!! This remarkable achievement allowed Market Taiwan to be ranked in the Top 3 in the Trillion Trees Campaign by the United Nations Environment Programme.
We are so proud of the tremendous efforts of Market Taiwan to help plant more than 45,000 trees! We felt that in honor of Earth Day, it is important to share the environmentally impactful contributions from the Market Taiwan team. These efforts aren’t limited to Market Taiwan or even a market country. We encourage each team to see how they can help positively impact their community in some way.
Quote from Market Taiwan Country Manager, Claire Ni:
“Since 2017, Market Taiwan has collaborated with Taiwan’s Forestry Bureau (COA) to host some events, including the “One Tree One Hope” Million Trees Project. We donated close to $400,000 to the Forestry Bureau and planted more than 45,000 trees in a more 64 acres on 14 pieces of land in Taiwan. The trees we planted enabled Market Taiwan to be ranked top 3 in the Trillion Trees Campaign held by the United Nations Environment Programme. In the event co-organized by Market Taiwan and the Forestry Bureau, the trees we planted are the species that attract bees for their nectar. These are also native tree species in Taiwan. We hope that through the tree-planting and afforestation activity, wildlife can also come to this land to nurture its next generations.”
