WHY IT MATTERS
The average carbon footprint for a person in North-America is 16 metric tons per year (32 tons per. This is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions such as flying, driving to work, eating red meat or warm washing our clothes (nature.org). In order to offset 1 tonne, approximately 40 trees need to be planted (25kg CO2 offset per tree).
We work with Tree Canada and help with the rehabilitation of the watershed and wildlife corridors by planting trees on abandoned farmlands. Tree Canada develops programs in partnership with the private and public sectors, communities and individuals, to maintain a healthy environment through sustaining urban and rural forests. Tree Canada has planted more than 84 million trees and greened more than 530 schoolyards across the country.
