Wipe Out Your Driving Carbon Footprint

Regular price $22.00

Make your driving #OceanPositive by wiping out the climate impact of your mileage - better yet, skip the car and walk or ride a bike whenever you can!

Take this #OceanPositive action and we'll plant mangrove trees in Mida Creek, Kenya, and protect a REDD+, VERRA and CCBA certified, "ridge to reef" watershed project in the Southern Cardamom Mountains in Cambodia or along the Pacific coast of Colombia.

By wiping out your driving impact, you:

  • Sequester CO2 with carbon credits from the Southern Cardamom REDD+ Project in Cambodia.
  • Plant three mangrove trees in Mida Creek, Kenya for every tonne wiped out. Every three trees planted has the potential to sequester an additional 1.2 metric tons of CO2
  • Create tree planting and management jobs for the villages of the Mida Creek region, and forest protection and ecotourism jobs for people living in the Southern Cardamom forest.
  • Protect biodiversity and threatened species such as dugongs (sea cows) and Irrawaddy dolphins in the Southern Cardamom Watershed, and protects critical habitat and nesting areas for sea turtles, Humpback Whales, and Indo-pacific Bottlenose Dolphin.

What's the carbon footprint of your driving?:

    • Average Surfer (USA): In a 2011 survey conducted by Surf First and the Surfrider Foundation, the median distance traveled by surfers to go surfing was 10 miles one way, and the median number of times they surfed per year was 97 = 1,940 miles per year to surf.
    • Average American (USA): The average American drives approximately 15,000 miles per year according to the U.S Department of Transportation.

Leaving a Lighter Footprint

We all must take direct action to reduce our climate impact and live a low-carbon lifestyle.

Before you book that next flight, could you meet friends and colleagues digitally?

Before you drive to the beach, could you walk, carpool or ride a bike?

Before you order the burger - what about a vegetarian dish?

The Skies Are Soaked...

Emissions reductions alone are not enough to solve climate change. Removing CO2 from the atmosphere is critical to protecting ocean health.

We believe that planting trees and protecting ecosystems is the most effective and efficient natural way to sequester (store) CO2.

'Wiping-out’ your climate impact

What does it mean?

SeaTrees works directly with high-quality reforestation and forest protection projects around the world. Each of these projects sequester carbon, while also providing significant social and ecosystem benefits.

Put simply, you’re not just offsetting your carbon footprint, you’re having a positive impact on the ocean - #OceanPositive
