Everyone’s gotta eat. You can reduce your food’s carbon footprint by buying local and organic when you can. However, it’s impossible to eliminate all of your food’s emissions. Calm your eco-guilt by offsetting those emissions by planting trees for your family's eating habits.
The average vegetarian's diet creates 1.7 tons (1.54 metric tons) per year. If we multiply that by four we get 6.89mt per year. Divide that by 12 months, and you get 0.57mt per month.
The average vegan's diet creates 1.5 tons (1.36 metric tons) per year. If we double that for two people we get 5.44mt per year. Divide that by 12 months, and you get 0.45mt per month.
The average vegetarian's diet creates 2.5 tons (2.27 metric tons) per year. If we double that for two people we get 9.07mt per year. Divide that by 12 months, and you get 0.76mt per month.
One mangrove tree sequesters ~679.7 pounds or ~0.31 metric tons over its 25 year growth period. We believe that carbon neutrality by 2030 is the ambitious goal we should all be striving toward. That’s why we’re using a seven year time period to calculate how many verified trees are needed to sequester the carbon emitted from different actions. In seven years, one mangrove can absorb 189.7 pounds or 0.09 metric tons of carbon.
After those initial seven years all of the carbon you emitted will be sequestered. Over the next 18 years the verified trees you planted will continue to absorb and store carbon.
HOW WE VERIFY YOUR TREES ARE PLANTED!
Planters on the ground use verification technology to monitor and track the time of planting as well as the geo-coordinates of every tree planted. Utilizing blockchain technology, this information is uploaded to a database so that we can ensure all of your trees are planted and monitor real climate impact and survivability over time.
