Explain your project in details:

Sustain credits is a company designed to develop and reward individuals & groups, through its sustain credits for actions carried out with the purpose of recovering and regenerating natural areas, whether urban or rural. Acting directly with the final link in the chain (the individuals responsible for environmental restoration actions), sustain credits has high efficiency in the direct application of resources in actions and places where they are indeed needed. Focusing on the local work of individuals and communities concerned with the quality of the environment in which they live, our actions result in greater local engagement leading to effective long-term results in the recovery of environmental quality. Through the possibility of monetizing the credits obtained, it also contributes socially to improving the quality of life of the individuals involved, resulting in greater benefits and engagement of the target audience. Acting with diversified actions on various fronts such as forest restoration, urban area restoration, beach and public areas cleaning, we have a large capillarity and direct penetration with the environmentally engaged public willing to carry out actions for the regeneration of the environment in which they live. The reward system is designed to stimulate and expand the grassroots actions, and actors, for ecosystem healing, providing financial support for earth doctors, credits receivers, as well ESG validation for corporation sponsors. Unlike traditional environmental charities, 80% of all financial support received goes straight to the point of need, the individual doing the action at his community, while 20% goes for sustain credits administrative, personel and project management functions. Sustain credits is an initiative of Maitri Artha Shastra Limited which is a company registered in the United Kingdom.
