Carbon Busting Projects

San Martín, Peru

Alto Mayo Conservation Initiative

Tropical forests are the Earth’s lungs—absorbing CO₂ and releasing oxygen. This project seeks to protect nearly 450,000 acres from deforestation. More trees = more oxygen.

La Plata County, Colorado

Southern Ute Indian Tribe Methane Capture

Each year, this project reduces up to 27,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s the equivalent of 1,588 average Americans emitting no greenhouse gases (not even by breathing) for a whole year.

San Isidro and San Cristobal Districts, Costa Rica

Los Santos Wind Power Project

When Mother Earth breaks wind, turbines generate renewable energy, supplying electricity to thousands of Costa Rican families. This reduces both CO₂ emissions and the country’s reliance on fossil fuels.
