21 January 2020, Sierra Madre Mountain Range, Siniloan, Laguna Province. Thank you EcoMatcher, for having planted the most number of trees in the shortest time with FEED. Thank you for continuing to walk your talk: “Integrating Tree Planting into your Business”, now having developed a sustainable 14,500 native Philippine forest tree cover since 2017 with FEED – at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG), a 9000 plus hectare protected forest managed by FEED’s first LIVING LEGACY partner since the 1980s, the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).
Forester Reyaldo E. Lorida (pictured to right), the Field Supervisor (and one of the longest serving foresters with 21 yrs of dedicated service) of the LQLG mentioned his gratitude on behalf of the local community of farmers, forest guards, rangers and members who help us achieve successful survival rates of minimum 85%, typically, 95% at the LQLG:
“It is thanks to partners like EcoMatcher that we are able to expand, protect, conserve and maintain our forest cover for all the benefits she provides to humans and animals alike. We are fortunate also to be able to involve more locals from other barangays who are very interested in enhancing their skills and knowledge on the protection of nature and biodiversity. We are aiming to accelerate these large scale plantings towards developing improved livelihood opportunities for the community to stand on its own by ensuring its climate resilience and sustainable management of the Sierra Madres – our first barrier against the anticipated major climate storms coming ahead.”
FEED has been planting with EcoMatcher since 2017 under our LIVING LEGACY program, and all we can say is thank you and more power to your advocacy. You have reached clients from around the world as far as France and the US to enable us to restore the Sierra Madres to her original glory.
An additional and increasingly in-demand feature of EcoMatcher’s tree-plantings include the capturing of individual tree-specific images, farmers/foresters/community planters names, mobile numbers and Global Positioning System (GPS) tags, using EcoMatcher’s unique TreeCorder application – which enables those who adopted these trees through EcoMatcher with FEED to remotely monitor your tree, from anywhere in the world.

More and more companies are starting to realize that climate change and sustainability is a business opportunity, not a burden. Customers and employees are demanding action. Companies, however, need trustworthy partners that offer transparent sustainability solutions
Welcome to EcoMatcher
Through EcoMatcher, companies can plant trees, use them in innovative ways and improve their businesses. For example, companies can use the EcoMatcher platform to gift trees they plant on behalf of the customers, or plant a whole forest and distribute the trees to each of their employees, or gift trees as a reward for finalizing a survey. The possibilities are endless.
So how we do that?
We partner with vetted foundations from around the world that specialize in tree planting. Through our platform, you have access to information about every tree you plant, and you can tap on cool digital technologies to make the best use of the trees you have planted. We cannot change the world by ourselves, however with a bigger team effort we can make a difference, while improving our businesses at the same time.

NATURE IS SPEAKING (Narrated by Julia Roberts)
What can I do to stop climate change?
“As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.
The good news: We are not alone. People, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are taking action. We’re fighting like our lives depend on it — because they do.
In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” – David Suzuki

In 2015, the Philippine government submitted to the United Nations the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry.
