RETREET redefines disaster relief by engaging communities to replant lost trees.
SUNDAY SHOW & TELL vol.66
Today, RETREET launched a new program - SPROUT!
An important part of our mission is to educate the next generation of environmental stewards. Through SPROUT, we teach kids of all ages about trees and then offer you the chance to turn their imaginary trees into a real ones for those rebuilding their communities in the wake of disaster.
Spend a moment looking through the tree gallery. See one you like? SPROUT it!
A new idea has sprung up regarding large scale reforestation, and it involves an unlikely technology. As you can see in THIS VIDEO, BioCarbon Engineering suggests using drones to plant up to 1,000,000,000 trees as a time.

Volvo is also making waves with LifePaint, a reflective safety spray that is invisible in daylight but shines brightly in car headlights. As they say, the best way to survive a crash is not to crash!
