A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and on climate change. It is related to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our daily activities through burning fossil fuels (for electricity, heating, transportation...). It is “the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product” (UK Carbon Trust 2008 "Carbon Footprinting").
There are different ways to reduce our carbon footprint, one of those is reforestation. Reforestation is the only type of carbon emissions' mitigation that removes CO2 from the atmosphere. Also, it is known that deforestation is responsible for about 25% of climate change, making reforestation a vital part of reducing emissions while providing time to transition to a clean energy economy.
We have a reforestation project in Talamanca where you can help reduce your own carbon footprint while you travel. You can combine your trip with some CO2 offsetting and help make your travel carbon neutral. Be part of climate-change mitigation.
