We often see and hear through the media that another section of the Earth occurs in natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, droughts, storms, and increasing air temperature as well as very hot weather. In fact, not the least of which being the victim due to the disaster. This becomes a concern and we grief along with what experienced by the “brothers”.

In addition, the use of fuel for vehicles and industrial pollution is unavoidable so that the carbon in the air any time getting high and uncontrolled.

And then, what about our natural forests which serve to absorb the carbon in the air? Unfortunately, the forests on the planet’s increasingly diminished due to any act of irresponsible people. They cut down trees from natural forests for their economic advantage private purposes without fixing its natural forests back. Finally, natural forests more damaged and diminished.

GWOODS Short Story

The wood used GWOODS not come from natural forest but from forest plants, i.e. plants of Forest peoples in Indonesia. To get raw materials, GWOODS independently plant trees together communities in the land that has not been planted with trees or unproductive land in Indonesia. Of course, the land has fulfilled the requirements of legality and registered its permissions in the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to be used GWOODS. With Forest Plants program through the development of the People, according to one of his vision GWOODS participate in maintaining the sustainability of natural forest, greenwash of planet Earth and help the welfare of villagers.

  1. GWOODS Plantations
  • The Development Of Seeds

Trees planted by trees GWOODS jabon (Anthocephalus cadamba Miq.) For the best result, GWOODS developed the tree seeds from seed the tree stem jabon option. Jabon trees have many advantages, namely

  1. jabon tree coniferous growing fast, in less than 5 to 6 years since the trees planted, jabon can already harvested,
  2. the growth of the average tree diameter up to 5-10 cm,
  3. in a period of 5-6 years, the height of the tree could potentially reach 25 m, can easily grow in open land, clay, soil podsolik clay, and Rocky
  4. the trunk is straight and cylindrical jabon, resistant to pests and diseases, do not require special care, broad-leaved and green so that more absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen compared to other trees.
  • Tree Maintenance

Period of the maintenance carried out since the trees are planted up with ready for harvest, that is 1 to 5 years. In this maintenance, GWOODS uses a technology called organic technology. This organic technology involving micro-organisms soil parser. This technology is useful for repairing if any soil structure damaged by the use of chemical fertilizers in the past, so the land became fertile again naturally.

  • The farmers got a lot of benefits

Since the beginning of the planting in 2011, GWOODS in performing planting, treatment, up to the time of harvest has many involve farmers in the area. In some land jabon, farmers were also given the opportunity to plant vegetable crops intercropping method, i.e. planting crops on the sidelines between trees with one tree jabon other jabon. The results for the farmers beat itself.

GWOODS has a mission so that the farmers in the area get jobs and revenue for their lives. Up to the 2016 program has been implemented in some areas in Java, mostly centered in the region of West Java, Indonesia, namely in 9 districts, 60 districts, 115 Village by involving farmers and 934 continually growing. The existence of the program, communities and farmers greatly helped the economy. They get a job and an income so that their life for the better.

  1. Environmentally Friendly and Green Processes
    We believe in doing things that are good for the environment, from our organic fertilizers that works to heal the land, to the management of our wood waste products to convert into energy products, and ultimately, to save the forest from deforestation and reduce global warming.2
  2. Ecological Balance to the Environment
    We are sensitive to maintain an ecological balance in the environment because we don’t want to destroy the environment where we working in. As an example, instead of relying on chemical fertilizers which eventually kills the beneficial micro-organisms in the soil and “kills” the earth in the long run, we developed a revolutionary organic fertilizer that works by first healing the land to restore the fine ecological balance in the soil. As a result, our trees grow faster with greener and more luxuriant leaves, and yield greater volume of wood per tree. The hundreds of thousands of trees we have, also contributed to a greener earth as the leaves absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.3
  3. Enriching Experience for the Society
    We create new jobs and better paying ones where there were few before, and in so doing, changed the economic lives of not just for the farmers who are planting and nurturing our trees, but the lives of all our trees’ investors, factory operators and tens of thousands of marketers around the world.
  4. Experientially Rewarding for every Individual
    Though it is rewarding in monetary terms, our greatest pleasure is realized in the lives of the people we have touched and transformed, as we see the quality of life improved in the people who are associated with us, and especially when we work together to build not just a greener world, an economically strong community, but also a better tomorrow for our next generation, environmentally as well as financially.
  5. Economically Profitable for the Company
    No businesses can survive long if it is not profitable. We are glad that we have a group of dedicated partners, from business alliances, to marketing, to admin staff and also to the thousands of farmers who believe in us, and of course, to the Government of Indonesia, who are all supportive of our cause and our goals to make all our lives better economically and socially while at the same time, doing good to the environment.

Mrs. Virginia Sattler, USA

a315a8_dd839c3ca3ed4b039f84c2f806add3d9My name is Virginia Sattler, a business woman from America. During my stay in Indonesia, a friend of mine, Mr. Wayan Sukawijaya, told me about a very promising project that is taking place called “Go Green”. When I learned about this risk free and environmentally friendly enterprise, I wanted to become a member immediately. I am proud to say, by participating through I-Gist, I now will be part of the positive solution in caring and creating sustainable ecology by planting and harvesting Jabon Trees. I can foretell that the Indonesia economy will continue to grow and prosper, and I am delighted to be a part of its’ success.

The above is just one of the many investors who are not just investors in our program, but our fellow partners to change the world. Stories abound of changed lives as a result of what the business brought to them financially. In some villages where we recruited farmers to our Plasma Farmers program, we had the opportunity to change not just their lives but the lives of entire villages as well. Men who had to live for far away places to find work, leaving their wives and children behind, sometimes never to return, are now happily settled with their families because of the work that our business created for them. With better income, they are not only able to have a better standard of living, they are also able to send their children to schools to be educated, and in so doing, build a better educated generation.
In the five years since investors started investing in our trees, we have had several touching stories of how lives have been changed for the better. Stories from individuals whose life has changed because of better income to stories of how families in whole villages have changed for the better due to job opportuities provided by GAB. We will be adding these stories in time to come.
