The public organization in South Africa Greenpop in its new campaign "Is there a tree?" (Got Wood?) I asked local men to get naked. And all for the sake of noble goals — for the sake of trees. And the results, admittedly, are impressive.

The founder of the organization, Misha Tisdale, traveled a lot for work and after several years calculated the environmental costs as a result of burning jet fuel. It turned out that he had to plant about 600 trees. He rounded this number up to a thousand and persuaded his friends to give him two months of their time to help plant these trees. "I like to convince people to do things they usually don't want to do," he said. "After they start, they realize it's more fun and easier than they thought."

25 men from South Africa wanted to benefit and somehow change the situation. In each photo of the project there is a man in an Adam costume against the background of nature. In addition to the naked volunteer himself, you can see his name and place of work, as well as frightening facts about the ecology of our planet. We have selected 10 photos.
