Individual offset plan – 1 Carbon footprint

£9.90 / month

Individual offset plan – Plant 5 trees/month and offset your carbon footprint
 

This project is the perfect sized plan to offset the carbon footprint of an average citizen living in the United Kingdom. The plan entails the offsetting of 1 carbon footprint per year which equals 10.6 Tonnes CO2.

The average carbon footprint of a resident of the United Kingdom is 10.6 Tonnes CO2 e and this monthly planting plan will offset this by funding climate action.

 

The project involves planting 5 trees per month, chosen among all our projects. Funds will be divided between our projects in Madagascar, Nepal, Kenya, Mozambique, Haiti, Indonesia, Honduras, Nicaragua.

The project aims at protecting and restoring forests on a massive scale by involving local farmers and creating livelihoods for people living in extreme poverty by offering them the dignity of employment and the possibility to become transformational agents of global forest restoration. The plantation, the provision of material resources and labour force, the care and growth of the plants, will be carried out by our planting partner Eden Projects – a nonprofit organization that works in developing countries to rebuild natural landscapes destroyed by deforestation. For these projects, we work directly with villages and communities suffering from extreme poverty resulting from the deforestation and destruction of the land that sustains them.

The management of the work, the procurement of resources and materials as well as the survival of the trees over time will be carried out by Evertreen’s planting partner Eden Projects.

To calculate this footprint, Evertreen relies on multiple data sets:

  1. Data from the World Bank which reports CO2 and other greenhouse emissions that occur in your country.

  2. Data from the Global Carbon Project which reports emissions embedded in imports from overseas. We combine these imported emissions with the country of residence emissions.
