How many trees you need to plant to reduce your carbon footprint?

Posted on November 23, 2017 by Enes Ulutas | 0 comments

The most important contributor to climate change is carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. When fossil fuels are burned, carbon within the fuel is released in to the air causing earth temperature to increase.

According to an MIT study an average American is responsible for about 20 metric tons of yearly CO2 emissions from energy use alone in a year. On the other hand rest of the world is responsible for about 4 metric tons of CO2 emission per person.

Even the lowest carbon emission communities within US release about 8 metric tons of CO2 every year. Still double the world average.

 

The Solution 

If you like to help reduce carbon emission, the first thing you need to do is identifying your carbon footprint. Simple things that you can do is using public transportation more often and using energy saving light bulbs.

You can also help offset your carbon emission by participating tree planting projects because as trees grow they will soak up carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.
