Students at Posse Adventist School in Goiás, Brazil, recently planted more than 300 Ipê tree seedlings on the school campus as part of the “Sustainable School” project, an initiative of the Adventist Education Network in Midwest Brazil. This special initiative emphasizes environmental preservation.
Data from the National Institute for Space Research (Inpe) indicates that from August 2018 to July this year, 2625 square miles of the Amazon has been deforested. Another statistic presented by the Green Initiative website, using a CO2 calculator, showed carbon dioxide emissions in Brazil are currently equivalent to 7.85 tons per Brazilian every year.
