TROPICAL REFORESTATION INITIATIVE
Welcome to the website for World Stewardship Institute's Tropical Reforestation Initiative
Welcome to Our Tropical Reforestation Program in Guatemala
Rebuilding forests by planting trees directly combats climate change. Trees take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and sequester it into plant mater. Tropical rain forests, as the lungs of the planet, are a primary source of CO2 absorption. They are also increasingly in peril from cattle ranching, export agriculture, and the timber industries. Helping to reforest tropical land is a high impact means to offset your carbon footprint. Planting trees in the tropics also helps those who are most affected by climate change and who depend upon the forests for food, thatch for housing and medicines.
At World Stewardship Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we offer both educational resources on the many benefits of tropical reforestation and the ability to help climate vulnerable communities rebuild their forests while at the same time offsetting your carbon footprint.
Please explore this website to find out more.
ZEROING OUT CARBON FOOTPRINTS
While offsetting carbon emissions is not a complete solution to reversing climate change, it can make a significant difference and we are dedicated to helping you eliminate your carbon emissions footprint through tree planting.
Through our tree planting program in northern Guatemala we help the native peoples reclaim parts of their traditional ecosystem, diet, and practices while also empowering other to offset thier carbon footprint.
EDUCATING & EMPOWERING
We offer in depth educational resources on this website so that global citizens can learn more about tropical reforestation and how to responsibly compensate for their carbon footprint.
