Reforestation and forest preservation carbon offset projects are part of the global warming solution. Forest preservation creates jobs, maintains and expands wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality. Forest-based carbon offset projects fight climate change by taking away carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere and filtering the emissions through trees and soil.
Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and is a direct contribution to global warming. Moreover, deforestation accounts for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions – more than the entire global transportation sector!
Smart Choice Landscape Company has partnered with carbonfund.org in the CarbonFree® Small Business Program to offset our carbon footprint. Smart Choice actively works towards offsetting our carbon emissions from our fleet activity as well as working towards reforestation. Our commitment establishes Smart Choice Landscape Co. as an environmental leader in the landscaping business community and demonstrates the proactive steps we are taking in the fight against global climate change.
