1 CHF pour le climat
1 CHF for the climate is an initiative for epicureans who wish to indulge themselves at the restaurant while simply fighting against global warming in a direct and indirect way.
With 1 CHF more on the menus of partner restaurants, the association contributes to
Helping the restaurant owner to source more local products, to support Swiss producers and encourage environmentally friendly agriculture.
Planting trees in Switzerland to capture CO2, preserve
biodiversity, maintain our
beautiful landscape and
Raise awareness about the environmental impact of our food, which represents 28% of the impact of our consumption in Switzerland (ahead of housing 24% and mobility 12%)
1 CHF pour le climat partners with Almighty Tree to plant trees in Switzerland to diversify the forests and farmland with tree species adapted to climate change.
Trees planted in Switzerland
Tons of CO2 will be absorbed
TREE PLANTING PROJECTS
In collaboration with the Mèbre-Talent forestry triage, we have planted on one project red oaks and Douglas fir in symbiosis with chestnut, lime and cherry trees. On the second project, red oak and Douglas fir were planted in symbiosis with sessile oak and sorbs. This diversity of species will enrich the biodiversity of this magnificent forest of Froideville which delights the inhabitants of the surroundings.
These projects were necessary to replace the weakened spruce trees attacked by the bark beetle as well as some of the very old trees that were exploited for construction (interesting for storing CO2 in the long term).
In collaboration with the biologist, Sylvie Viollier, tall fruit trees and hedges were planted to enrich the vineyard of the Domaine de Verex.. These trees will bring a beautiful biodiversity and many animals, such as insects, birds and small mammals. These animals will find shelter and food. All planted trees will produce edible fruits and berries. These trees will also store CO2 and will be beneficial for the environment.

In collaboration with Jean-Philippe Crisinel, Forêts Mèbres-Talent's forester, we planted lime trees, maples and Douglas firs. This forest represents an ecological and important area for biodiversity. Next to the plantation is the "bois neuf", which is home to the region's fauna and flora. On this project, spruce trees weakened by climate change have been ravaged by the bark beetle. Therefore, it is interesting to replant more resistant species to create this forest of tomorrow.
