On April 22nd, Jack Ma attended the annual meeting of China Green Company in Dunhuang, detoured 110 kilometers to the Ant Forest Public Welfare Forest and planted a Haloxylon. He said that today we young people can participate in planting trees. Our descendants will make great changes because of this. Although it is not easy, everything is not easy, and it will start a little.
In August 2016, Alipay officially launched the ant forest, and the carbon emissions saved by users walking instead of driving, paying for water, electricity, coal, and online ticket purchases will be calculated as “green energy” to raise a tree in a mobile phone. A tree, when grown, can be planted where you wish to grow, giving a contribution to the earth.
Today is World Earth Day. At present, the number of users of Alipay Ant Forest has reached 500 million, and 500 million people have planted 100 million real trees to protect the earth, with a total area of nearly 1.36 million mu. Jack Ma said that the ants will plant 100 million trees each year, and the planting area will reach one million mu per year.
