for earth month,
veritree is a restoration platform that uses blockchain-based systems to connect us directly with the impact of our tree planting efforts. by using their systems, trees planted by us are monitored for accurate data & impact analysis.
veritree was built to solve many of the problems facing tree planting & nature-based solutions across the globe:
~ double counting
~ poor monitoring for permanence
~ inability to collect accurate local data
carbon pollution is a serious threat to the earth’s climate. trees are one major natural way of cleaning carbon pollution from our air, sequestering it in the ground and helping to fight climate change.
because of mass production and consumption of resources, every 48 hours, we lose a forest the size of NYC.
a single tree can... provide enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe and reduce peak summer temperatures by 2-9 degrees fahrenheit.
... they help settle out and trap dust, pollen and smoke from the air.
... they create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for birds and other animals.
...they absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, from the air and release oxygen.
… a single tree can offset an average of one ton of carbon over its lifetime.
… forests are responsible for absorbing a quarter of human-induced carbon emissions.
