How does planting 25 trees help our planet?
Planting 25 most needed trees will sequester an estimated 7.50 of carbon.
7.50 tonnes of CO2 sequestration. That’s equivalent to 18,322.50 miles in a standard car!
Carbon dioxide is one of the biggest drivers of climate change, which makes forests one of our greatest solutions.
Trees capture and absorb carbon dioxide from the air while releasing oxygen in its place. And, their size, root systems and long life span mean they can do this at scale.
Planting trees also brings numerous co-benefits, including shelter, water filtration, biodiversity and poverty alleviation.
The team at Bluegrass Group are very excited to start offsetting their business footprint and watch their virtual forest grow.
