Why we Cool Earth:

Cool Earth is one of our favourite charities. It puts preservation of established rainforests at the heart of what it does and works with local communities to give them economic options other than deforesting their lands. When you redeem your credit by donating to Cool Earth you will be contributing to the protection of established rainforests which is the best way of removing carbon from the atmosphere.

What they say:

The reality of climate change is no longer up for debate. It is real and it is happening now. Our changing climate is the most pressing challenge facing our world today. Forest loss plays a major part in this, contributing to more than 12% of all CO2 emissions. Keeping rainforest standing is the simplest and cheapest way to mitigate climate change. Tropical forests have the highest carbon density of all forest types due to their ability for vast carbon sequestration. Therefore, protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions we can take to tackle climate breakdown. Deforestation releases as much carbon into the atmosphere as the global transport sector and destroys the best carbon capture and storage technology we have.
