What is a Carbon Footprint and Why is it Important?

So… what is a carbon footprint, anyway? A carbon footprint is based on measuring the emissions of carbon dioxide and other carbon-based compounds due to individuals’ (or organizations’) consumption of fossil fuels. Since the dawn of the Industrial and Technological revolutions, each person on our planet has created a carbon footprint. Because industries and the advancement of technologies are so ingrained within every facet of modern life, avoiding a carbon footprint is impossible. So what does this mean? Why is offsetting our carbon footprint so important? Let’s think about this a little further.

Why is offsetting your carbon footprint important

The results have been in for some time now. The increased carbon-based emissions (due to human consumption of fossil fuels) is affecting climate changes and damaging the environment. And not a lot has been done about it.

It wasn’t until recently that governments throughout the globe have decided to jump on the path to creating and sustaining ways to reduce carbon emissions and the use of fossil fuels. They’ve done so, mostly, by incorporating new regulations and requirements that monitor the largest industrial producers of carbon-based emissions.

Unfortunately, even with these new standards in place, we’re seeing things get worse, not better. There are multiple accredited reports and studies out that are showing our carbon emission rates continuing to rise. Which is why we need you, and every person on the planet, to play a role in reversing those damages before it’s too late. We can no longer rely on institutions and world leaders alone to demand change; we have to make our own individual changes. We need to work together for the greater good of our planet; Earth’s survival, and ultimately our own survival, depends on this collective initiative.

What are Some Options to Offset Your Carbon Footprint?

In order to find the best way to jump-start our eco-consciousness individually, we should take a look at our options. What can you, as an individual, do to play your part in emission reductions?

Clean Energy

Changing to solar, wind, or geothermal technologies. With each passing year, these types of alternative energy sources have become more readily available to individuals. However, unless you live in a country that has established infrastructures to provide those services to everyone, or programs designed to offset the transitioning costs, they can be quite expensive. The costs go up even more when dealing with remote areas and underdeveloped countries. Unfortunately, while these technologies are valuable carbon offset projects, they’re less available to the general population. Not everyone has the disposable financial resources as readily available, in fact, for most of us, finance is the biggest obstacle to joining this path of sustainable, clean energy.

Lifestyle Changes

Okay, so maybe you can’t afford or are otherwise unable to restructure your energy sources to clean ones. There are still ways you can help in this effort, we promise! There are lifestyle changes you can start to be more mindful about:

  • Recycling
  • Driving less
  • Planting gardens and home-based farming
  • Eat less meat
  • Purchasing an electric car, lawnmower, snowblower, etc.

There are a slew of personal lifestyle changes that can reduce your carbon emissions. It’s important to recognize that these options are all based on personal drive, discipline, time, and, in some cases, financial stability. We understand… even the simplest of these changes can be out of reach for some. Not everyone can buy a Tesla, no matter how Eco- friendly they are.

Carbon Reduction and Sequestration Programs

There are a lot of programs out there using carbon footprint calculators, based on the gold standard and carbon standard VCS models. These programs have you input information into their calculator and, based on that figure, several options are recommended for you to choose from.

These can be overwhelming in their own right based on the choices given and an individual wanting to pick the “best one.” Without researching those options beforehand, some may feel they are not adequately equipped to make that choice.

You Are Not Without Valuable Options… We Promise!

Look, it’s okay if some of those previous options we mentioned are difficult to adopt. So that’s why we have created a solution that is accessible, affordable, and most importantly: effective. We will explain why and how Forest Founders is the best option for you.

Forest Founders has created the simplest, most affordable, and, frankly, the best scenario for an individual to offset their carbon footprint.

Our Solution to Negate Your Carbon Footprint: Planting Trees

By using similar tools and calculators, we used the data to do the work for you. Using Obama era EPA data widely accepted throughout the scientific community we pinpointed the average American citizen’s carbon footprint at 21 tons per year. Using this data point we have created a subscription program to completely negate those carbon emissions.

With regards to all of the above options, and others not mentioned, nothing can compare to planting trees. Our planting partner plants saplings to ensure maximum viability. And that’s the sole purpose of the Forest Founders subscription program.

For just twenty bucks, (and no grunt work, personal research, or lifestyle changes required) we’ve made the possibility of negating your carbon footprint consistently, month by month, into a reality.

Of course, the ultimate way to negate your impact is a multi-pronged approach; changing your lifestyle and mindset, to the best of your ability and means, and subscribing to Forest Founders. We are confident that our program is the best, whether you are just starting down the Eco-friendly path or if you’re a seasoned Eco-warrior.

Think about it this way. Every person, with the right financial means, has the option to purchase many types of insurance policies. Whether it be for your home, property, health, etc., the purchases are made to prevent unforeseeable losses in the future. We continue to subscribe to health insurance even though we are not sick all the time. We purchase home insurance to make sure we are not destitute when a natural disaster strikes.

Similarly, the Forest Founders program is providing insurance for the planet and every living thing currently co-existing. A $20 monthly subscription purchased by enough individuals can ensure that future generations are equally as insured.
