HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Tree planting is an important element in the solution to tackle climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and are vital carbon sinks. The world's forests store an estimated 300 billion tons of carbon, the equivalent of 40 times the world's annual greenhouse gas emissions (source: Time,Nov,'09). It is also a relatively quicker and cheaper option of reducing emissions than alternatives like switching to low carbon forms of power generation or weaning the world's vehicle fleet off fossil fuels.
With heightened public awareness of global climate change, individuals and companies are determined to be part of the solution. Offsetting your carbon footprint by planting trees is an effective direct method to contribute toward reversing climate change and helping rural farmers and communities.
Our vision is to be the leader of a web tech enabled, cost-effective service to individuals and companies globally to enable the planting of trees. By planting trees not only have you made your carbon foot print zero but in return you would provide employment to farmers, have a direct impact on carbon reduction, help with restoring forests, improving wildlife habitats and offer flowers, fruit and fuel for local communities and wildlife.
