Here at Great Green Gooseberry we believe that millions of small actions
by millions of people can make a huge difference to our planet.
When you buy a Carbon Offset, you fund projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These projects help preserve rainforests, plant trees, fund sustainable energy projects.
No matter what efforts you make to reduce your personal carbon footprint (the GHG resulting from your travel, heating your home, cooking, the things you buy, even the food you eat), you will still have an adverse effect on the planet, like all humans. Carbon Offsets help you reduce this impact.
GHG emissions mix quickly with the air and, unlike other pollutants, spread around the entire planet. Because of this, it doesn’t really matter where GHG reductions take place so long as fewer emissions enter the atmosphere. Your Purchase is helping not only you, but people you will never meet.
For full information on the project which generates the Carbon Offsets attaching

from VCS (Verified Carbon Standard).
