Poetry For The Planet

Written by Published in Environment

Lead with poetry. To celebrate Earth Day Sublime introduces George The Poet's video-campaign to plant three million trees for Earth Week

Award-winning spoken word artist George The Poet has launched a campaign with reforestation and climate action platform Ecologi that aims to change the conversation around climate change and result in three million trees being planted in seven days.

The powerful video (watch below), which was crafted by George The Poet in partnership with Ecologi seeks to inspire hope, demonstrating how collective action can drive and accelerate change.

To encourage further messages of hope, Ecologi and George The Poet are encouraging people to tweet their own poems on the theme of #SeedsOfHope for climate change @Ecologi_hq. The platform will plant 10 trees for each poem received. 

Gaining momentum

Having taken Ecologi nine months to plant its first one million trees, it took less than ten days to plant its last million, and the platform plans to plant over three million trees this Earth Week. 

Launching on Earth Week, Ecologi is looking to bring a hopeful and optimistic narrative to climate action, showcasing the power we have if we all work together. 

“It’s been amazing to team up with such an incredible artist in order to shine a spotlight on global climate action. Over the last three months, we've grown by over 25% with nearly 18,500 subscribers and over 5,100 businesses now on the platform, our impact is increasing and our voice is getting louder. We wanted to use this campaign to amplify our messages around climate action and raise awareness of the benefits of these natural solutions on both our planet and local communities around the world. This Earth Day, we’re planting hope.” Elliot Coad, Co-founder of Ecologi
