Thanks for the feedback - it’s really appreciated!
That’s a really good point. As I’m sure you know, the UN has a great website displaying all of the projects they have available: https://offset.climateneutralnow.org/allprojects?specs=433
I’ve been skeptical on the efficacy of tree planting carbon sequestering initiatives - I do agree that there are other ways more effective for reducing carbon emissions - we do have ideas in mind on implementing other forms of impact into the product in the near-future
With that said, would more information and transparency on the projects? Our partner ONETREEPLANTED have a great website full of information on the projects they’re running around the world. Here’s the webpage for the Indonesia based efforts: https://onetreeplanted.org/collections/asia-australia/products/indonesia - The focus they have is not only on Carbon sequestration but also on the impact tree planting has on communities living in the area, endangered species habitats and the benefits of young healthy fires in the prevention of wildfires!
They also have a short section on the multiple types of tree species they plant in the area, giving a good indication of the care they take when choosing the correct species for the environment they’re planting them in!
If you’re interested in reading more about their programs - they’ve got an annual report here too: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0326/7189/files/2019_Annual_Report.pdf?163629
Do you think emphasising more of these impacts within the app alongside the carbon offsetting stats would help ease other’s concerns with the efficacy of tree-planting?
