A few pieces of news for our carbon offsetting project...
1. The name has changed: now look for "Carbon offsets by agricultural charcoal (biochar)" as "Turning carbon footprints into healthy soils." And, it's moved:
2. The project works like this: Every time we get to a $500 donation landmark ($500, $1000, $1500, etc.) we move into action dissolving carbon footprints and creating fertile carbon sinks. Which means each time we get to the next $500 mark, we take two metric tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere-- for good. Please help us to hit the first landmark ($500) as soon as we can!
3. Take it slow: This project is designed to be a slow build, rather than a single fundraising push. Recurring donations help us to grow. If you give $25 a month as a recurring donation, we get to sequester over a metric TON of CO2, with your name on it. Consider this as a means for offsetting your carbon footprint for the year!
Thanks for your interest, and for helping us to build healthy soils while trapping CO2 from the atmosphere.
