Demand has been increasing nature-based carbon credits – linked to ecosystem conservation and restoration.

Mangrove Planting Donation

Last May, we decided to help Mother Earth and joined forces with @danivdev and @IndonesiaIndahFoundation by donating Mangrove trees in Indonesia.

Only until last month did I realize the importance of mangroves. Did you know that mangroves are important to the ecosystem too? Their dense roots help bind and build soils and reduce coastal erosion.

This is an important ecosystem service as we face climate change…everyday.

21 Extra Goodness is happy to donate 100 trees to help fight climate change.
Should you want to help, you may visit @IndonesiaIndahFoundation to make a direct donation.

Tuesday, 8 June #WOW WORLD OCEAN DAY
The World Ocean Day unites the world for action in June and grows collaborative conservation every day of the year for our blue planet. On June 8 every year, World Ocean Day provides a unique opportunity to recognise the importance of our shared ocean and humanity’s dependence on a healthy blue planet for our survival. It also provides ways to celebrate the ocean by coming together to protect and restore the ocean, to safeguard it and help ensure a healthy home for all!

The Coral Triangle Day, held on every June 9, is a massive celebration of the Coral Triangle, the world’s epicentre of marine biodiversity. Celebrated in countries in the Coral Triangle region – Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste, the annual event brings together individuals, organisations, and establishments on one special day of the year to shed light on ocean conservation and the numerous ways to protect and conserve the Coral Triangle.

The World Ocean Day’s Ocean Defenders is a unique opportunity to connect and unite youth and others around our blue planet, with the focus on action for a healthier ocean and more sustainable society. A platform where Asia, and global youth get together to talk about the future of the ocean.

Are you ready to push yourself toward your personal best?
During this time of uncertainty, we’ve noticed two undeniable shifts. The first: people
have begun to prioritize their health in a much more deliberate way. The second:
people from across the world are figuratively coming together in droves.
Just look at how we welcome the opportunity to support each other remotely! In the
midst of our social distancing, we’ve found a greater sense of accountability and
greater systems of encouragement and support.
World Virtual Race is here to accelerate that motivation and goodwill. We’re an online
community who’s setting out to run the circumference of the planet from our homes.
And we’re doing it together!
Register & Join WVR
Everyday as you log your miles and training, you can upload your progress and join a
team of likeminded friends, from all walks of life, who’ve undertaken the same
challenge. Use your GPS and fitness tracker to measure your daily distance. Then at
the end of the day, or when you’ve finished your workout, report your stats online and
come contribute to this singular event.
Record & Upload Your Activities
We want as many people as possible to conquer the World Marathon Challenge!
Along the way, you’ll receive feedback and positive affirmations from your fellow race
participants, and the personal satisfaction of accomplishing this monumental feat.
Once complete, you can reward your achievement with our limited edition medal
while setting your sights on new goals for fitness and self-development.
Lace up your trainers, and get ready to race!
