What is a carbon offset project?
Carbon offset projects help other people in this world to enjoy better living conditions. Since they also demonstrably save greenhouse gas emissions, they protect the climate. By supporting these projects, you can offset the emissions that you currently cannot avoid generating. Without offsetting carbon, we will not achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change. We make the contribution on your behalf, we are your Partner.
Our chosen carbon offset project
Our chosen project is the Clean Oceans Plastic Bank in Haiti, Indonesia and the Philippines. Waste is collected and exchanged at the local Plastic Bank branches for money, food, drinking water, mobile phone credit, cooking oil or even school fees. The exchange value is greater than the actual market value of plastic, meaning that people there really can live from it.
The ocean stores a quarter of the CO2 from the atmosphere and even 93.4 percent of the heat caused by the greenhouse effect - making it a major brake on climate change. Warming, overfishing, pollutants and waste endanger this balancing function. Over 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the ocean every year. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. This project makes sure that the plastic never even makes it to the sea. It is recycled and processed into what is called social plastic, which is made into new products again - ecological and socially sustainable.
