Marquee Carpets' Commitment : Key Facts
Active Project Sites
Size in football pitches
Within the traditional seedling method, locally-collected seeds are germinated within a nursery local to the planting site, using a bag or pot. Once the seedlings reach reach the appropriate planting size, they are then given to the field team to plant.
Spotlight... Madagascar sites
Marquee Carpets' Madagascan reforestation focuses largely on restoring degraded mangrove estuaries on the northern coastline. These mangroves provide stability against erosion, whilst improving ocean health and delivering long-term flood protection for coastal communities.
Furthr and their partners employ communities living local to their project sites to produce, plant, and protect Marquee Carpet's trees at a fair local wage. This initial economic incentive provides our planters with the chance to build long-term financial stability, with many previously living in extreme poverty.
