'At home' tree promise...

Wednesday 21, March 2012

Tree planting has been shown to be a viable way to offset carbon emissions; however,planting trees to offset carbon has been the centre of some
fierce debate over the years. Nonetheless, through such constructive debate, the consensus remains that tree planting is a valid tool to tackle climate
change and one of only a few methods that actually remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere. For this reason Inspirational Homes will be attempting to off-set the carbon emissions of each 'At home' course, (acknowledging that most of you will have to travel some distance by car to get to the venue), by planting a native tree for every course run. [As a rough guide, one tree will absorb, in its lifetime, the emissions of 3,200km travelled by car].
