‘We believe that ignorance is as devastating as climate change itself’

An organisation has launched a campaign to tackle environmental issues by planting trees for every Donald Trump quote denying climate change.

Treepex, a platform in which users sponsor the planting of trees, has created a new campaign to allow users to “fight back” against Mr Trump, who has publicly cast doubt on the existence of climate change throughout the years. The campaign titled, Treespond, aims to be an outlet for those frustrated by the US president’s rhetoric surrounding climate change, by allowing users to plant trees for every environment-related quote by Mr Trump.
