Ethiopia plants 10 times as many trees in 12 hours as Shane Jones has managed to fund in two years

To date has only managed to fund 24.6 million towards the promise of one billion trees. In two years that is all he has managed.

Meanwhile in Ethiopia:

Ethiopia planted more than 353 million trees in 12 hours on Monday, which officials believe is a world record.
The burst of tree planting was part of a wider reforestation campaign named “Green Legacy,” spearheaded by the country’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Millions of Ethiopians across the country were invited to take part in the challenge and within the first six hours, Ahmed tweeted that around 150 million trees had been planted.

Impressive.
