PROJECT AFRICA ALIVE
Our goal is to capture the raw beauty of life in Africa, in an attempt to show the world what we´ll lose to climate change if we continue down this path.
Stop eating beef more than once a week. Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together.
Reduce bottled water consumption. The production of the recyclable plastic bottles the water comes in requires 17 million barrels of oil to make. That’s enough oil to fuel more than 1 million U.S. cars per year. It also takes water to bottle water, requiring manufacturers to use about 3 liters of water for every liter of bottled water produced. More so, once the bottles are manufactured they need to be distributed, and doing so contributes to burning more fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emission cost. Check out the Pacific Institute for more fact on bottled water.
Climate experts say the only way to really prevent climate change in the long term is to impose a Carbon Tax. A Carbon Tax is a fee you pay for every tonne of carbon dioxide you emit into the atmosphere, that’s used by projects around the world to absorb the same. Because oceans and forests are the biggest CO2 absorbers on the planet, the money from your Carbon Tax goes to initiatives that aim to protect these. We use a combination of Carbo Tax and Stand for Trees, which gives us the opportunity to help preserve the rainforests in Africa specifically.
Why don’t you calculate your own CO2 footprint and clear your conscience by neutralizing it today?
