At Lab Alley, we share in the collective responsibility towards protecting and restoring the health of our planet. That is why we have partnered with Ecodrive, an organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of mangrove ecosystems. For every purchase made on our website, Ecodrive, will plant one mangrove tree in Kenya.
The Mangrove Tree
The mangrove tree plays an essential role in the fight against climate change. The mangrove is a hardy, short, bushy tree with uniquely heavy and dense roots that make it especially efficient in carbon sequestration.
It is native to Kenya, where it fosters rich biodiversity in coastal, salt-water environments. The restoration of native mangrove forests in Kenya will also help to stabilize coastlines, protecting the land and communities in case of natural disasters. Studies have shown the mangrove trees “sequester carbon at a rate two to four times greater than mature tropical forests".
We're Joining the Fight Against Global Warming
2010-2019 was the warmest decade ever recorded, bringing with it an increase in climate-based natural disasters like fires, droughts, hurricanes, and floods. If left unchecked, the average global temperatures could rise by 37.4 degrees. By reforesting the planet, we are filtering the air we breathe and preserving our plant for future generations.
The Mangrove Tree:
Removes 680 lbs. of CO2 in its lifetime.
Provides rich areas for marine and terrestrial life.
Protects the shoreline from erosion and strong storm surges.
Helps alleviate poverty by creating 1 local work day, for every 100 trees planted
Planting the Way
To date, Lab Alley has created over 21 work days for local Kenyans and planted over two thousand trees! Lab Alley is committed to reducing negative environmental impacts and supporting positive solutions that help build a better future!
