HOW IT WORKS?

People from all over the world are becoming more and more concerned about the environment and global warming. PLANET RELEAF is a global initiative and platform, battling the core problem of climate change, making the world greener and helping people and businesses become  climate friendly and carbon neutral.

We neutralize your carbon footprint by funding projects in the Acadian forest region that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to offset your carbon footprint by preserving forest land from being clear cut for the next 100 years, verified against the VCS – Verified Carbon Standard. More than 170 thousand acres of Acadian forest is destroyed every year by clear-cutting and only 5% now remains in pre-colonial condition. On top of this, we plant trees to restore forest land and re-stock under-stocked forests to combat global warming. With a PLANET RELEAF subscription you will become climate friendly and carbon neutral, as you will be offsetting more emissions than your actual carbon footprint.

Carbon footprint is the carbon emissions of an individual, corporation or product.

We strongly believe in trees! Trees are also the most efficient way to neutralize carbon from the atmosphere, which is why we plant trees for all our subscribers, without any cost. Our subscribers carbon footprint will be neutralized by funding projects in the Acadian forest region that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to offset your carbon footprint by preserving forest land from being clear cut for the next 100 years, so the carbon neutralization made in the future from our give away trees, is for our next generation and will make the world greener. The trees we plant also helps restore the endangered Acadian forest.

When you choose a package,  you will neutralize the amount of carbon used by an average person or business of your selected group. This means in theory, that some will neutralize more carbon than they actually use, and some will neutralize less. All in all, we will neutralize more carbon than is actually needed and on top of this, we plant trees which give an even higher score.

If you neutralize more Carbon than you create/leave behind, you will become Climate Friendly. On top of this, you will be supporting green projects around the world and plant new trees to the benefit for future generations!

The most cost effective way and for administrative reasons, we neutralize our subscriber’s carbon footprint once a year. This allows us to gather bigger amounts and do greater impact in bigger projects. In reality, this allows certain subscribers to subscribe for a year before the actual carbon is neutralized, as for others (and most) it will be done rather soon

We’re lucky to work with a very special forest type—the Acadian forest, located in  New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, eastern Quebec, Maine, and northern New England. The natural Acadian forest has very low risk of fire, making it one of the best forest types in North America to store carbon. This forest type is one of the most diverse temperate forests in the world, but it is also one of the most endangered. More than 170 thousand acres of Acadian forest is destroyed every year by clear-cutting and only 5% now remains in pre-colonial condition. The trees planted for you not only offsets your carbon footprint but also help restore this endangered forest
