Working together to combat global warming and reduce poverty in the developing world

Ten Million Trees

Every time you commission one of our illustrators or animators, you are not only benefitting from outstanding artistic and creative talent; you’re also helping to create a healthier planet and to alleviate global poverty.

That’s because since 2013 Illustration has been donating 1% of its turnover to systematic tree planting to help reverse the rate of global warming. In 2018 we passed the 1 million trees planted milestone. Our target is now set firmly on planting a total of 10 million trees in Zambia and the Ethiopian Rift Valley.

We also help the families who plant and nurse the trees to produce honey which they can sell. This has more than doubled their income and enabled them to send their children to school, building a better educated generation for the future. Thank you for your support.
