Making an impact with digital media

The other day, I was browsing the web and found this site: https://reforestum.com

Reforestum is a web app that aims to help the planet through reforestation and protecting existing forests.

The idea is that you buy a piece of forest based on your daily CO₂ emissions, and with that money, the Reforestum team will give maintenance to the piece of the forest you bought.

Their mission is to help climate change by offsetting carbon footprint through reforestation and become carbon neutral. Reforestum calculates how much carbon each tree captures over time and based on your carbon footprint it suggests how much space from the forest you can purchase to become carbon neutral.

It all started as a Kickstarter project, and I really support the idea. Let’s give it a try!
