|We fund reforestation projects through the receipt of donations from businesses and individuals.
We offer individuals and organizations opportunities to offset the carbon dioxide their day to day activities, hobbies, and lifestyles may create. Individual and business donations are utilized to secure land and plant trees which help neutralize and/or offset the carbon released into the atmosphere by participating donors. Join our efforts today and help reduce your carbon footprint!
Through the years, government and big business have demonstrated a lack of commitment to environmental improvement efforts. It has become evident that they are unwilling to take the necessary measures to reduce carbon emissions. Consequently, the tasks must fall on concerned citizens and organizations to act collaboratively in hopes of reducing greenhouse gases and the effects of global warming! Donate today, and we will begin reducing your carbon footprint and offsetting your personal carbon dioxide emissions.
With your help, we can make a difference.
Why Should You Be Concerned About High Levels of Carbon Dioxide?
It is well known that gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) allow sunlight through the earth’s atmosphere but then prevent the heat created by the sunlight from leaving the earth’s atmosphere. This process is known as the “greenhouse effect”. If not the sole reason for global warming, the greenhouse effect surely contributes to the global warming problem. In addition, carbon dioxide causes roughly one-half of the greenhouse effect.
How Can Trees Reduce Carbon Dioxide?
Carbon Dioxide is removed from the earth’s atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis and stored in plant material, mostly trees. For millions of years this process has taken place and achieved the goal of storing carbon dioxide in plant materials which eventually developed into fossil fuels such as coal and oil. Humans, now more than ever before, are releasing carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere by burning fossil fuels. At the same time, humans have been removing trees from the earth’s surface to make room for people. Reforestation of lands that are not currently forested will help remove and store carbon dioxide
Trees remove or sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during photosynthesis and return oxygen back to the atmosphere. Since Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it as cellulose in their trunk, branches, leaves and roots they are also referred to as carbon sinks.
The reduction of carbon dioxide should be a priority for every business organization and person.
|What Other Benefits do Trees Provide?
Planting trees remains one of the cheapest, most effective means of drawing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, that it is why it is our main goal and objective.
A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48lbs./ year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 humans. This may not sound like much but the U.S. Forest Service estimates that all the forests in the United States combined sequestered a net of approximately 309 million tons of carbon per year from 1952 to 1992, offsetting approximately 25% of U.S. human-caused emissions of carbon during that period.
Besides removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and generating oxygen, trees also reduce air pollution, recycle water and control soil erosion.
We understand that it is not practical or realistic for every person to purchase land and plant trees. But what you can realistically do is reduce your carbon emissions to the best of your ability and offset the rest by contributing to The Global Carbon Reduction Fund.
