Earth is an awesome movie produced with the help of world’s best nature filmmakers, and Disneynature the first film label that has been introduced by Walt Disney in over 60 years. That in itself, should convey the significance, seriousness and the efforts that Disney is taking up.

However, unlike many other movie makers who make sweeping documentaries that only promote awareness, these guys decided to go a step further and offer all movie lovers to make a difference in a small yet worthy fashion by adding more trees to the planet. That means that If you go to the theater to watch it, Disney will plant a tree on your behalf in Brazil.

Disney has identified that the Brazilian Atlantic Forest is a sensitive and delicate ecosystem where only 7% of the original tropical rainforests is still intact today. That’s why this is where they’ll plant the trees, nurture them and ensure that the forest is replenished.

Apart from being part of a great and moving visual experience come April 22, when the Earth hits the screen, you can also do your little bid to help save the planet. Of course you can plant a tree yourself, but that’s also uber-cool… Kudos to Disney!
