Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
We wanted to participate in the zoo's Party For The Planet event by creating a project focused on the negative effects of deforestation.
How are you going to do it?
Our original idea was to make a completely recycled tree so we could educate the public on deforestation. We then branched out into Leaves for Trees. By reaching out to Whole Foods we secured sponsorship for our project. For every leaf someone put on our tree, Whole Foods would donate 1 dollar to Roots and Shoots. We then donated the money to Plant-it 2020, an organization that plants 1 indigenous tree for every 1 dollar donated.
