After you and your partner have found ways to reduce your collective carbon footprint, offset the unavoidable by planting trees. Psst, this is a great gift for newlyweds!
Unfortunately, there isn't much data on household emissions with two people, so we extrapolated based on an individual. One person creates 14.5 metric tons (32,000 pounds) of CO2, so two creates 29 metric tons. Divide that by 12 months, and the average American couple emits 2.42 metric tons 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.
THE VERIFICATION PROCESS
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.
