1 month: ⍋ 44 ☁ -3.8mt of CO₂
After your family has worked to reduce the emissions you create, you can offset the unavoidable by planting trees!
528 trees are required to sequester the 45.4 metric tons (50 imperial tons) of CO2 emitted by the average American household every year by 2030. Divide that by 12 months and you have 3.8 metric tons per month. These calculations are based on a family of four.
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.
