OFFSET MY CARBON FOOTPRINT

A Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide, and is made up of the sum of two parts:

1. The primary footprint is a measure of our direct emissions of CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels including domestic energy consumption and transportation (e.g. car and plane).
2. The secondary footprint is a measure of the indirect CO2 emissions from the whole lifecycle of products we use - those associated with their manufacture and eventual breakdown.

By purchasing OWNFOREST.COM Rainforest Tiles™ for yourself, you will be doing your part to offset your own "carbon footprint."

How about offsetting your morning commute?
Did you know that the average person driving 20 miles each way to work every day will emit about 10,000 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere every year?

How about saving some of the earth's finest medicines?
Nearly half of all medicinal compounds used daily come from plants endemic to the tropical rainforest. If a cure for cancer or AIDS is to be found, there is a better then 50% chance it will involve the rainforest. 70% of the plant species identified by the US National Cancer Institute as holding anti-cancer properties come from rainforests.

How about saving animals and plant species?
By conservative estimates, 9,000 species are going extinct each year, most of them from the rainforests.
