HOW YOU CAN COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE.
It is now a generally accepted fact that our overproduction of carbon dioxide is accelerating global warming.
Large organisations buy “carbon offsets” to compensate for their production of carbon dioxide. This usually means paying a third party to plant trees somewhere in the world. These trees then take carbon dioxide from the air thus making the organisation “Carbon Neutral”.
Up until now, ordinary people had no easy way of offsetting their personal production of carbon dioxide.
The Carbon Compost Co. has now made this possible.
A BRIEF SCIENCE LESSON
Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is composed of 1 part carbon and 2 parts
oxygen. The tree “breaks” the bond, retains the carbon and releases the oxygen back to the atmosphere.
Thus the carbon is stored in the structure of the tree. Whilst the tree lives, all is fine. However, when
the tree dies and rots away, or when the wood is burnt, the carbon in the tree takes oxygen from the air and
combines it to make carbon dioxide to release back into the atmosphere.
If the wood from the tree is burnt in the absence of oxygen the carbon cannot combine with oxygen and remains as
carbon or charcoal as we know it. If the charcoal is then buried it will be “fixed” permanently.
One bag of our Carbon Compost will give you a guilt free car journey of up to 100 miles.
Unlike so called “carbon offsets”, you can actually see and handle the carbon that you are locking away in the soil.
