#StayHomeForest | Being a Hope for the Future with 24,833 Shares

A Cree Indian proverb says that “Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.” It explains everything we need to appreciate these days.

We’re recently experiencing the days when we understand and realize our health and our loved ones’ value. While all this is happening, we find the opportunity to comprehend humanity’s effects on our environment, nature, world, and even our future. We become aware of our roles in life. We realize how important our future is, and we know that we are fighting against the climate crisis and Covid-19. We also know that one of the best ways to solve the climate crisis problem is afforestation.

Accordingly, as ecording, we wanted to leave a permanent mark on nature to remember our unity and solidarity in the future, as well as strengthening the #StayHome campaign, which we carried out to protect public health against the spread risks of the Covid-19 virus and to support our people in this regard.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone should stay home to ensure social isolation and minimize the virus’s risks. With our initiative, we aimed to create an unmanned "#StayHomeForest" by throwing a seed ball for every day we stay at home with unmanned aerial vehicles we developed and named ecoDrone. In this direction, we carried out our #StayHomeForest campaign with the support of the General Directorate of Forestry and partner brands of ecording.

Individuals participated in our #StayHomeForest campaign by sharing content on their social media accounts with the #StayHomeForest hashtag. Our ecoDrones will create the #StayHomeForest by throwing a seed ball into nature for each sharing made with the #StayHomeForest hashtag until the end of the campaign. During the campaign, the total number of shares made with the hashtag #StayHomeForest is 24,833, and the number of seed balls we will meet with the soil with the support of our partner brands is 265,000 in total. The seed ball shooting for #StayHomeForest will take place in Ankara in June.

We’re looking forward to the day we will throw seed balls for our #StayHomeForest campaign, in which we aim to turn the act of staying at home nowadays into breathing in the future. Knowing that the nature of our future depends on our nature’s future, we once again understood that a greener and better future is only #possibletogether.
