Fast Facts 

  Why Trees?  Trees are carbon sequesters, they absorb and store CO2 plus, they produce oxygen, purify our air and water.

  32% of all green house gases are offset by the land sector, forests provide 90% of the national carbon capture in the US.

  How many Trees are needed to offset the average American carbon footprint - 1,025 Trees each Tree absorbs about 31lbs. of       carbon dioxide a year.

 

  Carbon offsetting: A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other gases made in order to compensate

  for emissions made elsewhere.

Ways to be mindful

We directly produce    carbon dioxide when we drive a car or take a flight, we also indirectly produce carbon dioxide when we eat food that has been      produced with artificial fertilizers and pesticides, (which are made from oil.)
