Green Air Project is a non-for profit who’s main goal is to help businesses and individuals minimize their harsh carbon impact, by planting trees.
Green Air recognizes that we should all be recycling, reusing, and reducing what we use, but they challenge people to take it a step further and enact a positive.
The three “R’s” are all wonderful, but they are simply reusing a negative, by enacting a positive into the equation we can all make a larger impact on our environment.
Green Air was founded by Don Langmo who has been planting trees for over 20 years. He wanted to give others the opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation to enjoy.
So far they have planted over 220,000 trees!
You may ask why trees? There are many great initiatives that improve our environment, but trees seemed to be the most cost effective and beneficial.
Green Air plants loblolly pines in South Carolina were they are able to lease the land for the duration of the trees life. This type of tree is nature to the area so there are no pesticides or fertilizers used and there is no extra water needed to grow the trees.
The bigger the tree the more Carbon Dioxide it removes from the atmosphere, Loblolly Pines grow to be 115 feet tall. In this case, bigger is better!
$10 = 1 tree planted (enough to completely offset the average American’s CO2 emissions for a month)
How will it benefit you or your business?
The biggest benefit is that you’re helping to save the planet.
It can also be an important piece to your defined Sustainability program, Green Air offers an online verification program unlike any other green initiative where your customers and clients can see your impact.
In order to verify that the trees are being planted, Green Air works with a professional forester as well as offers participants a unique validation code through its website.
Once entered, this code navigates to a personal profile that displays the exact number of trees that were planted by that person. Each tree avatar grows over time. For example, all the tree avatars start off with as babies with a pacifier. This attention to detail really sets Green Air apart from other similar organizations.
The process is interactive and made easy so that participants can share their impact with business associates, clients, friends and family.
