Every year World Environment Day is celebrated on , as a day of inciting global action to remedy environmental concerns by which where our planet’s air, water, land and biodiversity are most affected. Since its inception in 1974, every year there is a different theme and a different host country that leads the efforts to draw attention to the chosen theme. This year, India is the host country rallying around the theme of #BeatPlasticPollution.
While there is a lot that can be done and is being done to deter the use of single-use plastic, the manufacture of plastic itself leaves a significant carbon footprint on the environment. A 500 ml PET bottle alone generates a carbon footprint of about 3 ounces (0.0850 kgs) of carbon dioxide!
We can’t do away with plastic entirely, but what we can do is find a way to offset our carbon emissions with the most useful natural technology we have—TREES.
Every tree you plant offsets 20kg of carbon dioxide on average annually, upon reaching maturity.
Plant trees online with us for INR 85 (USD 1.24 approx) in our projects located across India, and create a beautiful eTreeCertificate for yourself to commemorate World Environment Day this year. You can plant the trees by selecting one of the eTreeCertificate templates in the adjacent table.
