Renewable Energy Wind Turbines
When Mother Earth breaks wind, turbines generate renewable energy, supplying clean energy to thousands of Costa Rican families. This reduces both greenhouse gas emissions and the country’s reliance on fossil fuels. It also benefits the local economy by adding jobs and education. Read more here.
This project protects an old growth spruce forest on the North Coast of Afognak Island in Alaska. It will sequester about 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents over its 30-year life Read more here.
Alto Mayo is a massive forest in Peru – its size is double that of NYC. This project preserves 450,000 acres of fertile land from deforestation, which is vital because trees do a tremendous job of removing CO2 from the atmosphere. While the Alto Mayo is a protected forest, it still faces deforestation threats. Through this project, resources have been deployed to aid the region. Read more here.
Biogas Digester + Clean Cook Cookstoves
In the countryside of Sichuan, China waste management is a huge problem, because it creates excessive levels of methane release, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than CO2. This project invests in this rural area by establishing biogas digesters which turn organic waste into a clean energy source that can be used by the people of the region. Read more here.
For Peat's Sake
The Katingan Mentaya Project reduced over 7.5 mm tonnes of CO₂ each year by protecting and restoring 157,000 hectares of the peat swamp ecosystem, one of the largest remaining of its kind. Preservation of the peat swamp stabilizes water flows, prevents devastating peat fires, enriches soil nutrients, and provides clean water. Read more here.
