We all are very well aware that global climate change results in significant uncertainty when it comes to defining what the future will look like for our kids. Will the new generation be deprived of access to the same natural environment and carry the burden of consequences of earlier generations?
The good news is that if you are a concerned citizen/ parent about the future of humankind, nowadays, as an individual, you have a say, and you can participate in the process of enabling change. If sustainability is one of your core values, you would like to perceive a development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs – you can do so by investing in the revitalization of nature.
As Justin Adams, Managing Director Global Lands for The Nature Conservancy, said, “If we are to be serious about climate change, we have to get serious about investing in nature.”
Birth certificate bonds are one such tool that can enable your participation in making positive changes in the future. Birth Certificate Bonds can be purchased as a gift for your kid and can be a great investment tool with a higher return than banks usually offer.
How does it work?
Purchasing a Birth Certificate Bond, you plant a tree registered under the kid’s name. It takes on average up to 4 years for a tree to mature and bring a harvest that can generate a yield on your investment. Once the tree grows, we are able to market the harvest. As a result, your kid will receive a 20% yield annually on your investment. These yearly gains will be accumulated for future withdrawal.
Or you can even choose to reinvest your year-on-year gains to plant more trees and further boost your portfolio.
