Your Footprint. Australia’s Trees. Our Future.
All about carbon
We all create carbon emissions by going about our everyday lives.
These emissions, often called greenhouse gases, trap heat in our atmosphere and are affecting the world’s climate.
During photosynthesis, trees and plants ‘sequester’, or absorb, carbon from the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2), and turn it into energy. That energy creates new leaves, longer stems and more mass – locking away carbon.
Below, you can learn more about carbon, get tips on how to reduce your footprint, and hear from a Carbon Positive Australia donor and his choice to offset with us.
