Mifuko offsets carbon emissions (mainly from shipping) by buying trees and donating them to Mifuko Trust. The Trust works with local self-help groups to determine what kinds of trees are needed, and the groups take care of planting the trees. These could be shade providing trees, or fruit-bearing trees such as mango or banana trees.
This ongoing cooperation started in 2019 when Mifuko Oy donated 600 trees. In 2020 an additional 600 trees were planted. After trees are planted, Mifuko Trust follows on how planted trees are growing as part of our check in with the self-help groups.
