Forests are critical in fighting climate breakdown
Forests are the lungs of our planet. The leaves, wood, bark, roots, and even the soil of a forest captures carbon dioxide, a critical greenhouse gas, and binds it into the biological cells, giving us oxygen to breathe and helping balance our atmosphere.
Help our planet by replenishing our forests. When you buy our $25 package, you directly support the sustainable care of forests. Our planet needs trees now more than ever due deforestation across our country and the world—sign up today.
How it works
Simply fill out your information and the number of acres you want to support. Once you complete the purchase, we’ll send you an email confirming the carbon pollution we are offsetting on your behalf.
How does reforestation offset carbon pollution?
It’s not often talked about, but research1 shows that forests are the best technology we have to combat the rising levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Simply put, trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen; they are often referred to as the “lungs” of our planet. The carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and safely sequestered in their trunks, leaves, branches, roots and even in the forest soil for decades. The well-established value of forests has been documented and researched by scientists for decades. In fact, forests' power to store carbon dioxide is staggering: one tree can store an average of about 48 pounds in one year.
Will I really be helping the environment?
Yes. Natural climate solutions such as reforestation can help us achieve 37 percent of our climate target set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - which is to limit global warming to a maximum of two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It’s fair to say our climate depends on the growth of forests.2
