Annual Individual Carbon Offset
We understand it’s no easy feat estimating the exact size of your annual carbon footprint, and that time is of the essence in today’s modern world. If rifling through old utility bills is too much to bear, and you’d like a quicker more practical means of carbon offsetting, then choose our pre-set average Annual Individual Carbon Offset.
The annual average in most developed countries is around 15 metric tonnes of CO2. We will offset this by planting 15 trees for you. If you want to go the extra mile, and not only offset your annual footprint but become carbon negative then you can choose to plant 25 trees
Besides being carbon neutral, what do you get for your purchase?
- The GPS coordinates of your trees when they are planted
- Beautiful high-definition photos of your trees and surrounding forest in different seasons and weather
- A quarterly email update on the project where your trees are planted
- A quarterly newsletter keeping you up to speed on our on-going fight against climate change and our rewilding efforts
To avoid the hot, harsh Portuguese summers, we will be planting the trees in October 2017. 50% of the trees will go to the Faia Brava reserve, located in the Coa Valley in the northeast of Portugal. This is the most ambitious rewilding project in the country, perhaps even Europe. The 1000+ hectares of privately protected land is home to wild horses, wild taurus, beech martens, polecats, wild cats, foxes and birds such as the Iberian imperial eagle, black vulture, kites, golden eagle, eagle owl and the Bonelli’s eagle. The remaining 50% of trees will go to land managed by our partners Montis. Their work focuses specifically on native fire-resistant forests to help avoid the type of disaster that killed 64 people in Portugal this summer.
