This is story of one family who travels the world and offsets their carbon dioxide emissions to pass on an abundant plant to future generations.
They have already compensated 2,5x times their world tour emissions, but were looking at compensating 5 tons of CO2 a year for the next 10 years to get closer to COP21 objectives ahead of time…
They explain, “We therefore looked for a grass root NGO that would help us to do real Carbon Sequestration. Not just preventing future emissions (like we did with other programs), but really taking C02 from the atmosphere in the form of… trees!
Trees are indeed the only real Carbon Sequestration system that is working for now (even some industrial projects are starting to show some efficiency like CO2 injection into former geologic pockets of oil and gaz). That’s why it’s so important to protect forests wherever possible, but also plant trees and rebuild an ecosystem where it has been destroyed.”
It was a joy to host them in Costa Rica and partner with individuals seeking real solutions to climate change.
