80,000 lbs of CO2 reduced from the atmosphere this month.
3,842,000 total lbs of CO2 reduced from the atmosphere.
Introducing our first installment of Oco Crew Updates - this is where we will share our climate action story every month! This month, the Oco Crew reduced 80,000 lbs of CO2 from the atmosphere by supporting three active climate projects.
We supported a clean cooking project in India from Cool Effect
. This project maintains biodigesters that limit methane emissions from livestock and creates methane fuel that replaces wood-burning stove cooking.
We also supported a satellite-powered forest preservation project in Mexico from Pachama
. By using satellite data to monitor CO2 emissions from preservation projects, Pachama makes it much easier to assess forest preservation projects. See the land we are helping preserve below.
The third project we supported is the wonderful community-recommended Ocean Cleanup
. The Ocean Cleanup has created new technology where boats are used to directly remove plastics from rivers and oceans directly.
