Our Dream - Bebekish Forest
Bebekish has a dream of creating beautiful green world living in peace with happy and healthy people!
We believe we can create this world. However, we do not want to do this alone, we would like you to take a part of this dream. We have only one Planet to live in and we are living all together.
What have we done so far?
Firstly, we have started working on our dream by producing these beautiful, sustainable products for our little ones. Because we believe that Bebekish products are the healthiest products that little one's can have for their sensitive skin.
What are we going to next?
We want to reforest the world by planting over a million tree in the next 10 years.
In order to do this; we are in a partnership with Tree-Nation in order to plant trees all over the world. Tree Nation allow us to plant a tree for every product sold.
You will receive an email from our partner Tree-Nation, an NGO dedicated to fighting with climate change. Including the planting certificate and more information about the reforestation projects that Bebekish supports.
You can also help us to plant trees where there is a tree planting project managed by Tree-Nation.
You can check out our Bebekish Forest which is going to grow over time.
Why are we Planting Tree?
Trees are key pillars of the world for both humans and the environment. They benefit us by purifying water, air and creating better social conditions. They benefit the environment by providing homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate and improving our soil.
1 - Water
Trees purify water and slow down rain by filtering it with their roots. This process prevents erosion and reduces the risk of saturation and flooding.
Roughly 1/3 of the world’s largest cities rely on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water. This includes cities such as New York and Singapore.
2 - Air
Trees and forests are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.
In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.
Trees cool the surrounding air by providing shade and by a process called transpiration cooling. This is where trees release water droplets from their leaves that cool the surrounding area when they evaporate.
3 - Climate
Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tonnes of CO2, roughly 1/3 of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.
4 - Soil
Trees make soil less vulnerable to erosion. The tree canopy also provides protection for the soil underneath.
Tree detritus (often in the form of fallen leaves) enables nutrient recycling between the trees and soil.
Tree roots both loosen the topsoil and increase the porosity in the subsoil. Also, the reliable source of carbon from perennial trees benefits the microorganism in the soil which binds the soil particles together improving structure.
