The Ecoan reforestation project is an initiative which aims to plant a million native trees in the Sacred Valley, Peru by 2020. The project is a whole family affair; the men dig the holes, the women plant the trees and the kids pick up the plastic. Through this work ethic it is possible for 250 people to plant 10,000 trees a day.
