Climate change, pollution, habitat degradation, biodiversity loss – our planet is struggling. While humans are facing incredible challenges and learning to navigate the changes to our planet, wildlife and their ecosystems are in critical danger with no way to help themselves.
One in five species on Earth now faces extinction. Earth’s biodiversity is declining at an alarming rate. We desperately need to invest in our planet to protect its future and the future of all who call it home.
One of the best ways to invest in the future of our planet is by planting trees! Planting trees provides tons of benefits like habitat preservation, land restoration, and offsetting carbon!
Trees are vital to offsetting our carbon emissions. Trees utilize photosynthesis to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to produce oxygen and wood. On average, one mature tree can absorb nearly 50 pounds of carbon a year!
Humans produce massive amounts of carbon by burning fossil fuels like coal, natural gas, and oil, including gasoline. For context, check out the Carbon Footprint Calculator to get an idea of how much carbon you produce!
Invest in the health of Mother Earth. For just $5, you can plant a tree with Project Peril! That small gift of $5 will cover the purchasing and planting of the tree seedlings or tree saplings, which are much more labor-intensive yet yield a higher success rate for the growth of a tree.
