Sustain Our Planet is a corner of the web designed for you to take action, become part of the solution and help combat climate change.
We started this company after scratching our heads for months about what we could do to tackle the environmental problems currently facing our planet. All of us can relate to the frustration of another month when our eyes pop out of our heads while reading our electric bills or the endless traffic we experience on the roads as we move through our daily lives. We monitor increasing smog levels in our cities and all around us air and water quality is in decline. We are surrounded by "Go Green" campaigns in our communities but it is hard to know how one person can make a difference.
Sustain Our Planet was created as a way for you to see the positive effect your actions can have on our environment and to enable you to create a unique approach to adjust your lifestyle. We designed this for everyone - for those of us who want to get involved but are unsure where to start, and for those of us who have started "going green" but want to do more.
TRACK YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Sustain Our Planet helps you calculate and track your carbon footprint in the same way you might chart your calories on a diet, or clock your times when training for a race. You start by creating a free Green Account that shows your progress and monitors your carbon footprint. Your carbon footprint calculations are stored in your Green Account where they can be re-visited as often as you like.GREEN ACCOUNT
Your Green Account offers you the ability to observe changes and improvements to your emissions over time and also allows you to offset your footprint to become carbon neutral. Offsetting your footprint helps you to participate in something positive (like planting a tree) that will improve or sustain the condition of our environment.
WHY IS WHAT WE DO IMPORTANT?
At Sustain Our Planet, we believe what we do is important because calculating your carbon footprint provides you with the tools you need to make the greatest impact. The best way to reduce your carbon footprint is to make small changes to your lifestyle. As with anything, knowing where the problems exist creates the best environment to begin making changes.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
If you start making changes, you become an example to those around you... and if we all start to adjust our lifestyles, we can make a really big difference in the future. Adopting a more environmentally conscious approach to your lifestyle not only helps our planet it also helps your wallet! A decrease in your footprint means a decrease in the money you pay to fuel your car and pay your energy bills! To help you, we continually update the tips on our homepage to provide ideas and information on how to get started, and how to continue to improve.
Where Does My Money Go?
Sustain Our Planet uses your credits to plant trees in areas of the world where they will make the greatest impact in combating climate change.
Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees since 1989. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and their country programs, they have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.
