At Submer we are passionate about building sustainable technology and empowering more sustainable Datacenters (see graphic below) but we wanted to do more, that’s why we’ve partnered with Mossy Earth on their mission to restore wild ecosystems, support wildlife and biodiversity and help fight climate change. Put simply, for every SmartPod sold, we plant trees. Keep reading to find out more!
About the Submer and Mossy Earth Partnership
Mossy Earth has a number of projects available to its partners to contribute to. These range from reforesting the great Caledonian Forest in Scotland to removing toxic waste from caves in Croatia to help restore wildlife.
The Danube Floodplains Project
The project aims to restore this unique forest and conserve the diversity of fauna and flora that inhabit the area. By planting open areas with native trees, such as poplars, elms and maples, we are working to increase forest cover and habitat availability for species like the locally endangered black stork, the charismatic beaver and the rare large copper butterfly. Floodplain forests are an important carbon sink and their restoration has the potential to sequester a large amount of carbon and contribute to the fight against the climate crisis.
Southern Carpathians Project
Romania’s Carpathian Mountains are home to some of Europe’s last remaining truly wild forests and the largest population of bears, wolves and lynx. Sadly, this ecosystem hangs in the balance due to years of illegal logging. The goal is to restore the barren clear cuts that threaten these forests. In partnership with Foundation Conservation Carpathia they are working to restore clear cuts in the Romania’s Southern Carpathian Mountains.
