Supporting the local St. Barths economy by making the island attractive to visitors. (en francais plus bas / French below)

You can make a difference and help the island recover its beauty, charm its visitors again, and jumpstart its economic engine. How?

By making St Barths green again, one tree at a time. By helping plant trees, you can help locals forget the scars of Hurricane Irma. You, as a visitor, can at the same time make your own stay even more enjoyable by watching trees adorn again the coasts of St. Barths once again.

This is the donation page for the non-profit Green StBarths (aka Making St Barths Green Again). To know more our organization, our statutes and our action,  you can visit our website: http://www.greenstbarths.com .

Insurance companies will help rebuild villas and shops, but there is no insurance for lanscaptes. To get visitors back and foster employment on the island, replanting along the beaches and the roads is crucial. 

The project is supported globally by St Barths lovers and executed locally by people with a proven track record of delivering on environmental projects on the island (For instance, Didier Laplace of Coastal Restoration St Barth). 

Green StBarths is working under the advice of the local environmental authorities (Agence Territoriale de l'Environnement) to plant on species endemic to the island and safe for the local animals. 

The money collected will be used in 2 ways:
- Giving St Barths its alluring beaches back by planting smaller trees and plants that can stabilize the sand dunes.  We will also only select plants that make it possible for turtles to lay their eggs on our beaches. Thus, we are using local knowslege and scientific studies to select the right plants.
- Giving St Barths landscapes and roads their allure back by replanting hedges that were dotting the island. Locals and visitors enjoy the charm and the privacy that natural hedges of small local trees give to the roads and neighborhoods of the island.​

This is a French non-profit, located in St Barths, and certified by the local authorities ("Collectivite de Saint Barthelemy) as part of the non-profits officially endorsed and superviced to be part of the post hurricane Irma relief effort. (See below a copy of the certification letter issued by the authorities).
