MATHS ON A BACK OF A NAPKIN BEATS NO MATHS AT ALL, RIGHT?
Sam & his family recently ventured across Australia. They did 45,000km over 12 months, which we figure is between 20-30 tons of co2. This would require at least 50-100 trees to offset fully.
On a recent planting day they attended, 2,000 trees were planted by 30 volunteers - so almost 70 trees each.
So if you follow our 'back of the napkin maths' :) - it took 1 tree planting day including the whole family to offset the trip. In addition, they are aiming for 1 per year for the family to stay carbon neutral each year after this.
Thanks, Sam. We do love to hear why our volunteers choose to volunteer with us!
