As science has portrayed numerous times, climate change is the greatest threat facing humanity in the 21st century. There have been many devastating weather phenomenon in the recent past that range from extreme bush fires in Australia and California to massive typhoons in South East Asia to the severe droughts experienced in Russia, not to mention the wild hurricanes that hit the U.S. coasts every year.
The cost of all these weather events has the world leaders gripping for answers to effective solutions as the climate events has cost the world half a trillion dollars with thousands paying for with their lives. The cost of climate inaction in dollars and lives lost is and will continue to mount if there is little to no action. One of the most effective solutions to tackling the problem of climate change is in investing in tree-planting and reforestation projects.
To address the absolute emissions in the aviation industry which are constantly rising despite the various pro-environmental actions taken by stakeholders, fly-eco.com donates 10 trees for every travel booking purchased via its website without adding any extra costs to the consumer.
Fly-eco.com is taking a leap forward towards environmental sustainability and managing carbon footprint by investing its revenues into global reforestation projects. Tree-planting also has its own added benefits which include:
- clean air
- clean water
- carbon sequestration
- reduced crime
- increased property value
- mental health
- temperature control
- flood control
- wildlife habitat
A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year, and can sequester one ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old. In 2010, approximately 600 million passengers travelled domestically within the U.S. If 10 trees were planted for each passenger, then an estimated 288 billion pounds of CO2 would be removed from the atmosphere each year, the equivalent of removing 27 million Cars from the road. With fly-eco.com, consumers have the power to influence their decision making process and turn this number into a reality.
