For every flight that you take, consider planting trees in Africa. These will be looked after by members of the Anglican church, either through churches, schools or institutions such as orphanages. As well as offsetting your carbon emissions, you can create beauty and shade.
Climate change affects all of us, but Africa is the most vulnerable. Although the best solution is to cut out air travel where at all possible, there are times when we need to travel by plane. In order to offset the carbon emissions from your flight, you can purchase trees that will be cared for by Anglican churches, schools, creches or orphanages.
Deforestation is responsible for about 20% of global warming. Reforestation is a critical part of the solution. Planting trees:
Absorbs carbon dioxide to reduce climate change
Improves air quality
Controls flooding by minimizing runoff and topsoil loss
Provides habitat and nutrition for wildlife
This project will offset carbon emissions through the planting of trees. The trees will be well cared for because they are planted in churches, schools and creches. They will also green these areas and provide shade and beauty.
