Understanding Carbon Offset


 

How it all works: All the activities that we develop have an impact on the environment, whether direct or indirect. For example, we generate CO2 directly when we move in our vehicle or on public transportation, and indirectly through the manufacture of these vehicles, the mobilization and the manufacture of the fuel.

These daily activities generate pressure on the stability of the forests, which are degraded and even eradicated in some places. Therefore, the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases stay in the atmosphere, so we need, not only to improve our lifestyle but also carry out tree planting that allows us to recover forests, biodiversity, along with the proper functioning of ecosystems. In the end, these forests and trees capture the CO2 generated in our activities.

How can I help? You can calculate your carbon footprint using a calculator and plant enough trees to absorb the amount of CO2 generated during a particular trip or during your daily conmute to work. To make this easy we have created a quick shortcuts as a way to compensate for an airtrip or your daily conmute to work. With the click of a button you will be planting trees. 
Understanding the numbers: Calculating the exact figures is not an easy tasks, depends on many variables. But as a guide you can estimate that driving a total 10-mile commute in your gas vehicle produces 3.07 kg/CO2. A 500-mile air trip generates 125 kg/CO2.
