Megaplast has planted 164 plants and trees just in the month of December in 2019 with the offset of 11 tonnes of CO2. Megaplast has the goal to plant thousands of trees, each year, and grow our corporate forest, either through investing in tree planting, or through buying CO2 Credits.
Our plant projects are in
France, Spain, The United States, Madagascar, Colombia, India, Kenya, Burkina Faso, Nicaragua. Morever, we have planted trees which range from medicinal, to helpful for agroforestry, endangered species, nutritional and plants like rice. Megaplast also makes donations to corporate forests of other companies.

Our corporate forest;
International Partnerships is very much at the heart of the Megaplast reforestation system, partnerships for tree planting happen between grassroots organisations, international NGOs and carbon investors across the globe.
Water supplies are a part of the projects sustainable management, such as improving water quality and quantity and contributing to the reduction of water-related risks through reforestation with local species and polycultures in the local community.
Reforestation, afforestation, agroforestry and the protection and management of forests mitigate climate change threats and impacts. By using scientifically rigorous peer-reviews and third-party validation and verification, it is ensured that Plan Vivo projects’ carbon models are robust and conservative.
Reforestation projects are sustainably producing sampling, and trees are planted in long-term plantations, minimal environmental impact is made during the production, while the environment, society and the economy benefit of the projects.
Reforestation has a positive impact in the local community beyond direct and indirect economic benefits, plantations provide the local community with infrastructure to otherwise remote and forgotten local tribes and communities.
Reforestation project coordinators who oversee the participation of smallholders and communities create jobs and opportunities that contribute to overall capacity-building and the transfer of skills on a local scale. The necessity for community monitoring creates jobs for forest technicians, many of them women or young people. Moreover, locals find seasonal jobs in the planting season, which in turn promotes the collection of seeds and local tree nurseries. Often, forest carbon projects introduce new technologies and skills which are then transferred to project participants, including electronic equipment or computer literacy.
