A Little About Israel

Trees and Environment

Did you know that Israel is one of only two countries in which the amount of trees in the beginning of the 21st century was higher than the amount in the beginning of the 20th? We are proud to be a part of that fact, by contributing to the JNF in each customer’s name.

Culture and Cultural Memory

With over 200 museums, Israel has the highest number of museums per capita in the world.

Essential Production

In Israel the desert is being seeded. The largest water desalination plant is in Sorek in central Israel. During the coming year around 40% of Israeli water consumption (700 million cubic meters) will be from desalination plants. As for sewage treatment, Israel is number one in the world, recycling four times more water than number two (Australia).
