Last time I wrote you we were hoping for an agreement with a transportation company in Los Angeles to offset their projected GHG emissions for 2013. Hope no more; it’s a done deal. Yes, they began charging all of their clients an extra $1.50 per ride on the first of April. They were able to send their first installment the middle of May and, get this, it was more than they expected.

We have combined three smaller projects that total a little over 9000 trees to offset the company’s emissions. All of the projects are in the same general area of Costa Rica as this one, “Reforesting the Deforestation”. It’s the original Maleku territory and many people and businesses seem drawn to helping these people who are in danger of extinction. 

Now that the other three projects are being sponsored by Strack Premier Transportation, all of the focus will be on this project to receive donations and soon we will be able to GET PLANTING IT!
