Raw Rolling Papers has worked with the Carbonfund organization in the past with our carbon offsetting in our production of our papers. The RAW foundation decided to take it a step further and plant 1000 trees to help rectify deforestation. Forestry projects absorb carbon emissions for years and decades into the future. RAW foundations support of these projects is reducing emissions over several decades. Fight global warming. Protect biodiversity. Help communities. Support forest-based carbon offset projects.
Reforestation and forest preservation carbon offset projects are part of the global warming solution. Forest-based carbon offset projects fight climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil and have many co-benefits for the community and local wildlife. Forest preservation creates jobs, maintains and expands wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality.
Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and direct contribution to global warming. Moreover, deforestation accounts for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions – more than the entire global transportation sector! Our reforestation and avoided deforestation offset projects meet the toughest industry standards.
