Plant a Tree
Arasia propose, in partnership with Mass-Education, to plant one or more trees in the Sundarbans, a magnificent Indian region listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
1024 trees have already been planted by Arasia in this region since 2015.
This action sensitizes the local population to the challenges of the tree and the forest, and makes them an actor of its own development.
Support our reforestation action in India!
You can give a tree, or more, to a person of your choice! The recipient of the gift will receive a personalized message and a planting certificate.
