Bella Hadid Donates ‘600 Trees To Be Planted’ In Response To Her Own ‘Carbon Footprint’

Bella Hadid is trying to make a dent in her own carbon footprint.

Hadid took to Instagram on Wednesday to express some regret over her rigorous travelling schedule. In an attempt to make-up for all the flying she does, the supermodel has promised to donate 600 trees for planting immediately and will likely donate more through 2019.

“Donating 600 trees to be planted, 20 for each flight I took these past three months and probably will continue for the rest of the year,” she wrote. “It makes me sad how much my job affects my carbon footprint and of how brutally climate change is obviously affecting the world.”

“Mother Nature needs some love,” she continued. “I’ll be starting with my home in California and of course the Amazon for the most recent wildfires, but please reach out and let me know which locations need to be shown some love as well, all regions welcome.”

Hadid has had a lot of time to reflect on her carbon footprint while gazing out the windows of planes.

Donating 600 trees to be planted , 20 for each flight I took these past 3 months and probably will continue for the rest of the year.It makes me sad how much my job effects my carbon footprint and of how brutally climate change is obviously effecting the world. Mother Nature needs some love…🌳🌼🌜 I’ll be starting with my home in California ( 129 million trees need to be restored re: wildfires, 1.3 million acres burned) and of course the Amazon for the most recent wildfires, but please reach out and let me know which locations need to be shown some love as well , all regions welcome🙏🏽 Africa, Asia, North America, and Latin America💛 this is so exciting and interesting to me, that even though I’m not physically there, trees are being brought to life in the most incredible places that are in demand of them! it’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, the biodiversity and animal life we need..🐛🐜🦗 I know it’s not much , but when I fly, I look out the window and see so many beautiful, extensive forests, so much land and trees but also so much that needs lots of help.. think about the animals too💛 anyways . once I get home I’m definitely planting my own tree outside. so inspired by my friends 💛🌿🌱🌳🌼🌼 ps I did some research and onetreeplanted.org is probably the easiest website I’ve found to donate to multiple regions at the same time, if you’re interested:)
