Wipe Out Your Flight Impact

Regular price $88.00

Make your next trip #OceanPositive and wipe out your carbon footprint from flying. 

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.

For each ton of CO2 created by your flight, your purchase:

  • Sequester one ton of CO2 with carbon credits from either the Southern Cardamom REDD+ Project in Cambodia or the Colombia Pacific Watershed Projects.
  • Plant three mangrove trees in Mida Creek, Kenya which has the potential to sequester an additional 1.2 metric tons of CO2
  • Creates 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.
  • Protects 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.

How much climate impact did your flight create?:

    • Short-haul flight (< 3 hours = 1 ton CO2)
    • Medium-haul flight (< 6 hours = 2 tons CO2)
    • Long-haul trips flight (< 12 hours = 4 tons CO2)
    • Ultra long-haul flight (18+ hours = 6 tons CO2)

Flight times listed as 1-way travel time.  CO2 footprint counted as a round-trip.

Uses latest CO2 emission factors according to DEFRA-2018, and a radiative forcing factor of 2.0 according to Jungbluth & Meili 2018. "What the heck is radiative forcing?"

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
