The Schöffel Foundation, founded in 2011 by Hubert and Peter Schöffel, which promotes and initiates social and ecological projects, is supporting tree planting and forest redevelopment in state forests in the German state of Bavaria. German online shoppers can donate the 3 percentage point reduction in value-added tax – one of the government’s tax measures to support businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic and effective until Dec. 31 – and the foundation will double the amount. More than 20,000 trees have already been planted since the campaign was launched on July 1.
