There’s lots of talk about climate change, but what can you do to help?
At Eat My Carbon, we aim to enable over 1 billion trees to be planted in areas that are not currently designated forests, for example farms, disused industrial sites, and beside railway lines and roadways.
Today we have launched our new website at www.eatmycarbon.com.
We provide a place for landowners and helpers to connect, so that the right trees are planted in the right place, and that they are nurtured (watered, weeded, pest control) to ensure their survival. Eat My Carbon provides systems that help planning of planting and maintenance activities, so that the right resources are in the right place at the right time.
We all need to “eat our carbon”, so that we reduce the level of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in the environment. At Eat My Carbon we want to do whatever we can to help reduce greenhouse gases. At the moment our focus is on enabling more trees to be planted, but in the future we hope to include other initiatives like reducing energy consumption and green alternatives to energy production.
At the moment the website is a simple registration system, and an explanation of the concept – it allows landowners to register, giving details about what land they have available for planting, where its located, and what assistance they need (e.g advice, funding, labour, plants).
Helpers (e.g planters, plant nurseries, forestry consultants, pest control experts, fencers), can also register, list their skills and what they can do to help, and can be notified of planting and forest maintenance activities.
In the coming weeks we will be delivering a prototype system that will allow landowners and helpers to connect and manage the planting process – in the meantime, we need your help to spread the word to as many people and organisations as possible. Please get your friends and contacts to register, and to “like us” on social media using the links below.
Thanks for your assistance.
