TreeFolks un-paving the way to the future
Friday, March 5, 2021 by Tai Moses
TreeFolks has come up with an ingenious way to “show the direct impact of planting trees beyond their carbon capture abilities,” and the local landscape design firm dwg. has become the first private company in Texas to take advantage of it. A TreeFolks news release explains how it works: Companies may purchase credits through the tree-planting nonprofit’s Carbon+ Credit program that offset their carbon emissions. The money is then invested back into the community through TreeFolks’ reforestation work in Travis County and neighboring counties, allowing local communities to reap the benefits. “This localized climate action paired with other sustainability practices could be replicated in other cities and counties as a realistic pathway forward for the carbon economy and business sustainability practices,” says the release. Said dwg. founder Daniel Woodroffe, “We envision a world where creativity leads to great social and environmental change, and could not imagine a better partner than TreeFolks to help us reach our vision.” Learn more about Carbon+ Credit at Treefolks.
