WHY WOULD YOU NEED TO OFFSET? 

Due to the serious social and environmental consequences of global warming, there is a growing need to seek a reduction in our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Carbon credits were created in 1997 from the Kyoto Protocol as a means to create a financial incentive to reduce emissions. These credits come from environmental preservation projects that aim to capture excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. For each carbon credit, one ton of carbon equivalent emissions is avoided.

CARBON OFFSETTING

As younger generations become more environmentally aware and more international agreements aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions are signed, a number of companies and organizations seek to offset their emissions; that is, they seek to reduce the effects of their environmental impacts. A common way to achieve this is through the purchase of carbon credits.

WHAT ARE THE CARBON NEUTRAL AND CARBON FRIENDLY SEALS?

A company receives the MOSS Carbon Neutral Seal when it fully offsets all of its carbon emissions. When this compensation is partial (Scopes 1 and 2), the company receives the MOSS Carbon Friendly Seal.

HOW CAN MOSS HELP ME OFFSET MY COMPANY’S EMISSIONS?

If you want to offset your company’s carbon footprint, we can help you to take action today. MOSS provides solutions and recommendations on where and how to minimize your impact by purchasing MCO2, MOSS’ tokenized carbon credit.

With our calculators, you will know your company’s carbon footprint and will positively impact the environment by offsetting your carbon emissions. Several companies and events have already received the MOSS Carbon Neutral or Carbon Friendly Seals, like Bionexo, Rally dos Sertões, Brainvest, CryptoWeek and Call Me Layla. 

The MCO2 Token, our tokenized carbon credit, comes from rainforest conservation projects that can offset tons of carbon dioxide. Some of these projects have already been detailed here on the blog, such as: the Agrocortex Project, one of the largest sustainable forestry initiatives in the country, focused on long-term timber production; Fazenda Fortaleza Ituxi, focused on sustainable management to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; and Amazon REDD + IFM, which aims to conserve more than 20000 hectares of forest in the Amazon.

GOL and MOSS: A Groundbreaking Partnership

For the first time in Latin America, you will be able to offset your flight’s carbon footprint with GOL and MOSS

On June 5th, GOL, the largest domestic airline in Brazil, and MOSS, the largest environmental carbon credit platform in the world, joined forces to announce to their customers a pioneering, one-of-a-kind initiative in the Latin American continent. Anyone who flies with GOL will have the opportunity to offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their flight by purchasing the MCO2 Token, MOSS’ tokenized carbon credit.

IN PRACTICE, HOW CAN I BUY CARBON CREDITS TO OFFSET MY EMISSIONS?

After purchasing their ticket, GOL customers will receive an email from the airline with a calculation of their trip’s emissions and how to offset them. If interested, the passenger will be redirected to MOSS’ website to purchase the MCO2 Token. After purchasing, customers will receive a certificate of how these emissions are being offset, including the project that the carbon credits originated from.

Each MCO2 Token purchased represents one ton of carbon equivalent that is no longer emitted into the atmosphere, as our carbon credits originate from rainforest conservation projects that offset tons of carbon dioxide. To learn more about these projects, click here.

For Eduardo Bernardes, VP of Commercial, Marketing and Customer Relations at GOL, “the partnership with MOSS for individual carbon offsetting establishes a new chapter in the national aviation market. It is a very significant launch that puts the company ahead of issues related to environmental preservation in the sector.”

For Luis Felipe Adaime, Founder and CEO of MOSS, the partnership is important for the environmental platform to be able to reach more and more people and more sustainable projects across the country and worldwide. “Since we created MOSS a year ago, we have allocated more than US$13 million to conservation projects in the Amazon Rainforest. Our partnership with GOL will help us reach more and more people and expand our activities with environmental preservation projects,” he says.

AVIATION AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

Even though it is a sporadic and rare activity for a large part of the world population, according to the ICCT (International Council on Clean Transportation), commercial aviation was responsible for emitting 918 million tons of carbon into the atmosphere in 2018, being responsible for 2.4% of global carbon emissions (learn more in our blog). For this reason, GOL has been increasingly investing in actions that reduce its emissions, until reaching carbon neutral levels in 2050, a commitment established in a pioneering manner by the company in Latin America.

In addition to individual carbon offsets made by passengers, other actions taken by the company are the development of biofuels, search for efficiency gains in its operations, flight planning and execution best practices, and constant fleet renewal for more efficient aircrafts.

Soon, MOSS and GOL will offer another environmental project for customers to offset their carbon footprint, in addition to the existing ones focused on preserving the Amazon Rainforest. This is a reforestation project, supported by GOL, which aims to produce biofuels. The new project will also grant the customer the same digital certificate available today and the transaction will also take place through MOSS’ platform.

CAN I BUY MY CARBON CREDITS WITHOUT FLYING THROUGH GOL?

Today, any individual or company can purchase MCO2 Token, MOSS’ carbon credit, whether or not they have flown with GOL.

Carbon Footprint: the Impact of your Flights

Understand the environmental impacts of your air travels

CARBON FOOTPRINT: OUR IMPACT ON PLANET EARTH

Each one of our actions leads to the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This emission can be direct, when, for example, we use a car that burns gas, or indirect, when we use a plastic bag in the supermarket, since the manufacture of five of these bags emits 1 kg of carbon equivalent in the atmosphere. The sum of these actions forms our carbon footprint, which shows how much greenhouse gases we emit into the environment and how much we contribute to  global warming.

FLYING ALSO CREATES A FOOTPRINT

Like all of our actions, flying also generates a carbon footprint because airplanes, due to the high use of fossil fuels, emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In 2018, according to the ICCT (International Council on Clean Transportation), commercial aviation was responsible for emitting 918 million tons of carbon into the atmosphere – this means that commercial aviation alone accounted for 2.4% of global emissions, even though it is a sporadic and rare activity for a large part of the world population. Between 2013 and 2018, emissions across the aviation industry increased by 32%; this is a worrying situation and one that must be solved.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE: HOW AIRLINES CAN REDUCE THEIR EMISSIONS

In order to improve the current framework, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), a specialized agency of the United Nations, responsible for promoting the safe and orderly development of global civil aviation, has set itself the goal of cutting carbon emissions in 2050 by half of 2005 levels. For this to be possible, some actions that may help in this reduction are:

  • LIGHTER AIRCRAFTS

The heavier the plane, the more fuel it needs to use, so the development of lighter models benefits the environment. Making lighter seats, carpets, engines and all parts of the plane as a whole will make the aircraft need less fuel.

  • BIOFUELS

The exchange of fossil fuels for biofuels will help make our trips more sustainable; after all, these fuels are the major “villains” in the emissions of our air travel.

  • HYBRID ENGINES

The possibility of replacing traditional engines with hybrid or electric models will also help reduce fossil fuel consumption, significantly reducing total greenhouse gas emissions.

  • COMPENSATION THROUGH CARBON CREDITS

One of the alternatives to offset carbon emissions, in addition to the previous changes, is to offset the emissions of a flight through the purchase of carbon credits, as each credit purchased will mean that a ton of equivalent carbon will no longer be emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere.

HOW CAN I OFFSET MY CARBON EMISSIONS AND HOW CAN MOSS HELP ME?

As we have mentioned before, the purchase of carbon credits is one of the main and quicker solutions to offsetting carbon dioxide emissions and, within this sector, MOSS stands out as a global leader.

When purchasing and offsetting an MCO2 Token, MOSS’ tokenized carbon credit,  one ton of carbon equivalent will no longer be emitted into the atmosphere, as these credits originate from forest conservation projects that capture tons of carbon dioxide emissions. To learn more about these projects, click here.

A segurança do blockchain

Blockchain and its Security

Understand the revolutionary security of blockchain technology

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN?

In its purest form, blockchain is a type of data infrastructure that consists of a chain of blocks that allow the validation and verification of information. In the physical world, the closest analogy to a blockchain network would be like an accounting book, except blockchain is digital and more secure, transparent and decentralized.

WHEN DID BLOCKCHAIN ​​APPEAR?

Crypto and blockchain came into the spotlight in 2008, in an article published by Satoshi Nakamoto (pseudonym of bitcoin creator). It was thanks to blockchain that Bitcoin’s creation is possible, as Bitcoin transactions are validated and verified on a blockchain network.

Naturally, this same technology expanded to other types of crypto assets; today, it is used to validate any type of information in a network. Therefore, the technology is not exclusive to cryptocurrencies, but it is strongly associated with it.

BLOCKCHAIN ​​AND BITCOIN: ARE THEY THE SAME THING?

No. Bitcoin is the cryptocurrency and blockchain is the technology that guarantees the security and verification of the transactions. This is a typical point of confusion for people new to the cryptoverse, as it was through Bitcoin that blockchain became well-known.

HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN WORK?

Imagine that you buy an MCO2 Token and decide to sell it on an exchange like ProBit. Your transaction will be represented by a block, which will be directly linked to many other blocks (which represent other transactions). Each block contains information, such as the date and time of the transaction, and is given a hash, which functions as a fingerprint.

In addition to their individual information, each block is linked to the previous block, which has its own hash, thus forming this chain of blocks. This means that, in practice, no block can be accessed individually, since they are in a chain and any changes, in that sequence, can be easily noticed and defended by the system.

Another point that makes the network secure is the fact that it is fully decentralized. Unlike closed networks in an organization or a central government, blockchain is a decentralized network, where each miner (people who work to keep this information chain safe) has a copy of the entire information chain. 

A hacker threat is ineffective against the technology, as it would have to be carried out on at least more than 50% of the network, which, as we said, is decentralized. Any new block that is added to the network goes through the validation process of the miners, who, by simple majority, validate (or not) the information.

It could be compared to an accounting book, but technological, gigantic and transparent to the whole world. This also does not mean that everyone will be able to see your transaction data. What is transparent are the checks that validate it, with information such as date and time; personal data, like someone’s address, does not appear on the blockchain. The scanned blocks are also encrypted, which makes them tamper-proof. They cannot be corrupted, altered or deleted.

For these reasons, blockchain technology is being used in many use cases different from bitcoin. It is this technology that allows the security of transactions of many crypto assets worldwide, including the MCO2 Token, the MOSS carbon credit.

Recently, the security of our MCO2 Token was audited by Certik, a company specializing in blockchain security. Certik was a pioneer in using the formal verification process in smart contracts and blockchains. This means that our token is now proven to be safe and free from vulnerabilities.

DEXTF

Green BTC: the first environmentally friendly bitcoin is here

MOSS, Dexprotocol and Wrappedfi introduce the first environmentally friendly bitcoin.

Bitcoin’s carbon footprint has made crypto investors worried and is a recurrent media criticism. That’s because the Bitcoin network, like most useful things in society, consumes energy. While a significant and growing portion of the energy it requires comes from renewable sources, some of it comes from carbon-emitting sources.

The good news is that now it’s very easy to offset that carbon footprint using blockchain technology itself.  What can we do about it today?

Introducing the DEXTF Green BTC Token: 

A decentralized asset launched via DEXTF protocol that uses carbon offsets. The majority of the asset’s capital will be held in WBTC, a wrapped bitcoin token issued by Wrapped.com, and a small portion will be used to purchase MCO2, a token created by Moss Earth, which represents certified reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

If you are uneasy about your Bitcoin investments for environmental reasons this is the product for you. DEXTF is an oracle-less digital asset management infrastructure on blockchain that allows anyone to create, mint, and redeem tokenized portfolios (XTF  tokens) At present, DEXTF supports more than 70 tokens. 

As you know, moss.earth is the world’s largest environmental platform. Our mission is to combat climate change and preserve the planet. MOSS’ carbon credits are fully tokenized (coded into blockchain), leading to the highest security possible. We use AI and blockchain and top-notch tech. MOSS is a global agent at the largest carbon credit registry and has audited its process with best-in-class companies. We can serve and provide carbon offsets for anyone from the largest companies in the world to the individual level!

We are creating a green bitcoin ETF along with One River Asset Management

The MCO2 is the solution to crypto’s carbon footprint. This Monday, we were mentioned on CoinDesk, the largest cryptocurrency news website in the world. The article highlights One River Digital Asset Management’s filing of an application with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the creation of a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) that will be carbon neutral.

To achieve this goal, One River partnered with MOSS to use MCO2 tokens. In the SEC filing, the One River Carbon Neutral Bitcoin Trust would be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the carbon credits will be used to offset the emissions associated with the bitcoin in the fund.

Exchanges

So, what are exchanges?

Understand what exchanges are and what these enable you to do with your crypto assets

WHAT IS AN EXCHANGE?

When you go on a trip outside of your country, you usually go to a currency exchange to trade your dollars or euros to the local currency. The same is true in the crypto world: if you want to own Bitcoin, Ethereum, or MOSS Carbon Credits, you must look for a place that will trade your hard-earned money for the crypto asset of your choice. 

An exchange is a digital marketplace that allows you to purchase, sell, or exchange your crypto assets. The main function and differentiators between the many online exchanges is to offer this service in a fast, secure, and legal manner. For this reason, exchanges typically charge fees when buying assets and require documentation when you register.

In a peer-to-peer exchange, outside of a centralized exchange, it is impossible to truly know the origin of the asset or money involved in the transaction. Although your intentions are lawful and correct, regulators may not see these with the most favorable view.

WHAT SERVICES DOES AN EXCHANGE OFFER?

It is important to know that there is a variety of online exchanges that offer different services, so the goal is to compile a summary of the most basic and common to all of them. 

  • SALE OF DIGITAL ASSETS

An exchange typically buys a large quantity of crypto at wholesale price and resells them at the market price. It is worth remembering that the price of any crypto asset can vary from exchange to exchange, as they all work independent of each other. In this case, this is different from buying stock on a stock exchange or dollars at a currency exchange, where prices are much closer among competitors. 

  • TRADE BETWEEN USERS

This service allows users to buy, sell, and trade crypto assets among themselves. In this case, the exchange acts only as an intermediary.

  • SET BUY AND SELL ORDERS WITH LIMIT PRICES

When buying and selling crypto assets, it is possible to automate the process while setting a limit on the price of the orders. For example, you can set your account to buy a specific crypto asset for under US $100. When the asset drops below this price, the exchange will complete the transaction for you, and you will not have to track daily price changes. 

  • LOAN

A user can borrow digital assets from the exchange. The payment of the loan, as is typical with a common bank loan, requires payment of interest.

  • STORAGE

This service enables you to store your crypto assets securely in your digital wallet.

HOW DO I CHOOSE AN EXCHANGE?

Before choosing an exchange, you must consider many factors. It is important to understand an exchange’s transaction volume, rates, and reputation online. Additionally, check if the specific exchange you’re interested in works in accordance with the local laws of your country. You can also diversify your investments across more than one platform; for example, you can buy your assets in one platform and store them in another.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE MCO2, MOSS’ CRYPTO ASSET?

To buy your MCO2 Token,you do not need to use an exchange. You can buy your credits through MOSS’ official platform

If you are already involved in the crypto world, you can also find the MCO2 Token on global exchanges like ProBit, a South Korea-based exchange, and Mercado Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency platform in Latin America. You can also find our token on Uniswap, the largest decentralized exchange in the world.

5 razões para acreditar no MCO2 Token

5 Reasons to believe in the MCO2 Token

Discover the world’s first green digital asset, the MCO2 Token and join MOSS, the world’s largest environmental platform

WHAT IS THE MCO2 TOKEN?

The MCO2 Token is the blockchain-enabled carbon credit developed by MOSS. Each MCO2 purchased is equivalent to one ton of carbon equivalent that is no longer emitted into the atmosphere. In the carbon credit market, MOSS is the largest environmental platform in the world.

Over the past few centuries, humanity has consistently increased its carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. This process, which was greatly accelerated by the Industrial Revolution, leads to a rise in the planet’s temperatures, causing the phenomenon known as global warming.

This phenomenon has a number of serious social and environmental consequences. Among these are the extinction of many species of animals and plants, prolonged droughts, high-intensity hurricanes, and an increasingly Uninhabitable Earth. This will generate a significant amount of climate refugees, people who are forced to migrate from their homes given extreme climatic events like raging wildfires, floods, or the creation of food deserts. 

Carbon credits are a part of the solution to climate change, but they are not everything that needs to be done. It’s important to think about your habits to reduce your carbon footprint and to offset the remainder that cannot be reduced. This allows environmental projects to continue preserving endangered areas.

5 REASONS FOR YOU TO BELIEVE IN OUR CARBON CREDIT

  • OUR PROJECTS

Our credits come from forest conservation projects that avoid the emissions of tons of carbon dioxide. In a year, we have already channeled more than US $13 million for the preservation of 780 thousand trees in the Amazon Rainforest.

Through processes that involve site visits, interviews, documentation verification, investigations and technical risk assessment, MOSS chose 20 of the best 200 projects in Brazil, whose function is to capture excess greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Some of them have already been detailed here on the blog, like: the Agrocortex Project, one of the largest sustainable forestry initiatives in the country, focused on long-term timber production; Fazenda Fortaleza Ituxi, which focuses on sustainable management to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; and Amazon REED + IFM, which aims to conserve more than 20 thousand hectares of forest in the Amazon.

  • OUR TEAM

The MOSS team is composed of highly prepared professionals who are passionate about the environment. We are a global company under the leadership of Luis Felipe Adaime, our CEO. With a degree from Stanford University, after having worked at large companies like Credit Suisse, Luis saw carbon credits as a pillar of the solution to global warming. Through MOSS, he placed carbon credits in the Ethereum blockchain, and it is now fast and easy to offset a person’s or a company’s carbon footprint. It takes less than two minutes!

We also have a dedicated team of shareholders, including renowned environmentalist Fábio Feldmann. As a Constitution Deputy, Fábio was responsible for developing the chapter on the environment in the Brazilian Constitution, one of the most advanced texts in the world on this topic. In the following years, he has continued working on global discussions in environmentalism. At ECO 92 (United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development – Rio 92), he led the delegation of Brazilian parliamentarians. He also held the role of the State Secretary for the Environment of the State of São Paulo. Fábio has always sought the path of environmental preservation and sustainable development; he founded SOS Mata Atlântica Foundation 35 years ago. Today he continues this journey with MOSS, the largest environmental platform in the world.

  • TRANSPARENCY AND SECURITY

Transparency and security are crucial to our business. We are a tax audited company by Deloitte, which has more than 176 years of reliability in the international market and more than 700 offices around the world.

Our carbon credits are in the Ethereum network; blockchain technology allows every transaction to be tracked and visible to everyone. Recently, our MCO2 Token was audited by Certik, a company specializing in blockchain security. Certik pioneered the cryptoverse by using the formal verification process in smart contracts and blockchain. This means that our token is not proven to be safe and free from vulnerabilities.

Our MCO2 token generation was audited by EY (Ernst & Young), one of the largest independent auditing companies in the world, certifying the integrity and transparency of the carbon credits we transact and the MCO2 to our customers and partners.

For us, it is extremely important that our customers have security in our work and that is why we are part of System B. We recently received the pending status B Corp, a special status for new businesses. This puts us on the path to B Corp certification, which is “the highest standard for socially responsible companies.”

  • WE ALREADY OFFSET THE EMISSIONS FROM INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES

In less than a year, we have established partnerships with several companies, Brazilian and foreign, to offset their carbon emissions. Among them, we can mention Bionexo, Rally dos Sertões and Brainvest.

  • WE ARE IN THE WORLD’S LARGEST EXCHANGES

To make it even easier to buy and trade your carbon credits, we are at two of the largest exchanges in the world: ProBit, a South Korean-based exchange, and Mercado Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency platform in Latin America.

Learn how to offset your Bitcoin’s carbon footprint

After Elon Musk criticized the environmental cost of Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency suffered a historic devaluation. Find out how MOSS enables you to offset the environmental damage of your crypto assets

On May 12, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the electric carmaker would no longer accept Bitcoin as a form of payment for their vehicles. In his Twitter, the entrepreneur published:

“Tesla has suspended vehicle purchases using Bitcoin. We are concerned about the rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels for Bitcoin mining and transactions, especially coal, which has the worst emissions of any fuel.

Cryptocurrency is a good idea on many levels and we believe it has a promising future, but this cannot come at great cost to the environment.

Tesla will not be selling any Bitcoin and we intend to use it for transactions as soon as mining transitions to more sustainable energy. We are also looking at other cryptocurrencies that use <1% of Bitcoin´s energy/transaction.”

The result was immediate: the cryptocurrency suffered a 12% devaluation in the following 24 hours, leading to its second biggest drop in absolute numbers in its history. While we understand Tesla’s concern around Bitcoin’s environmental cost, we want you to know that #MOSSHasTheSolution.

BITCOIN AND ITS ENVIRONMENTAL COST

The environmental cost of Bitcoin does not come from buying and selling the cryptocurrency; rather, it is embedded in the mining process, which consumes large amounts of energy, in exchange for ensuring that the blockchain works appropriately and that transactions are secure thanks to its proof-of-work algorithm.

The idea is that network participants help keep it safe and functioning and, therefore, they are rewarded financially through the issuance of new Bitcoins. As mining consumes large amounts of energy, miners search for cheap energy that, unfortunately, tends to be harmful for the environment. This energy consumption increases every day, and, consequently, the mining of Bitcoin has become more harmful to the environment than ever before.

HOW CAN WE SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

One simple yet effective solution to the emissions associated with cryptocurrencies is to purchase and offset carbon credits. For Bitcoin specifically, for every Bitcoin, you can offset the emissions with 2 MCO2 tokens. In doing so, the Bitcoin effectively becomes carbon neutral, and the funds spent on MOSS carbon credits support projects in the Amazon Rainforest.

It is important to remember that, whether conscious or not, we are responsible for the emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere; this is known as our carbon footprint. You can read more about this in our blog, and you can also calculate your footprint by clicking on this link. Therefore, whether we are Bitcoin holders or not, we must stop to think about our impact and how to offset it.

#MOSSHasTheSolution: The MCO2 TOKEN

The MCO2 Token is a blockchain-enabled asset that can offset greenhouse gas emissions. One MCO2 equals one carbon credit, so, by ‘burning’ one MCO2 token, you are offsetting the emissions of one ton of greenhouse gases. To learn more about the projects MOSS supports, click here.

By placing carbon credits in blockchain, MOSS has made the market more secure, transparent, democratic and dynamic. In digital portfolios, carbon credits are no longer just an expense; now, they can be treated as an asset which can be sold on international exchanges. The use of digital wallets in blockchain also increases the security of the process and makes transactions more transparent.

In the carbon credit market, MOSS is the largest environmental platform in the world. The MCO2 was listed at $3 and reached an ATH of around $20. It is responsible for channeling more than US $13 million for the preservation of more than 780,000 trees in the Amazon Rainforest.

Global warming: What can I do about it?

Check out these ten things that you can change in your daily life that will contribute to combat global warming and help save our planet.

The unrestrained increase in greenhouse gas emissions is one of the greatest challenges of our generation. With a life standard increasingly linked to the emission of pollutants, humanity puts the planet and the next generations at risk.

According to the Climate Observatory, in 2019, Brazil saw a 9.6% increase in net greenhouse gas emissions, although there was only a 1.1% increase in GDP (Gross Domestic Product); there was low economic growth and high levels of pollution. 

The change we want to see depends on each one of us. We have listed ten simple things that you can change in your daily life that will contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and, consequently, to the reduction of global warming.

1 – REDUCE YOUR ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION

The production of electric energy is one of the main sources of carbon dioxide emissions. Although we have many options for clean energy (as we have discussed in this blog post), a good part of electricity production still emits a large amount of greenhouse gases.

These small actions can reduce the consumption of electric energy: turning off the lights when leaving a room; disconnecting electronic devices from outlets when not in use; observing efficiency labels when purchasing electronics, prioritizing those with lower consumption.

2 – LEAVE YOUR CAR AT HOME

Going to work in a gas-powered car is harmful to the planet, due to the large emissions of CO2. Using public transportation, walking, carpooling and using a bike can help save the planet.

3 – CHANGE YOUR EATING HABITS

Livestock is a major contributor to the emissions of greenhouse gases, so, if possible, reduce meat consumption. Also avoid processed foods (like chips and sodas) and give preference to locally grown products or create your own organic garden. Remember that the emission of pollutants involves the entire life cycle of the product.

4 – PAY ATTENTION WHEN BUYING FURNITURE AND WOODEN OBJECTS

Always check if the wood is certified; this guarantees that it was handled correctly and not illegally extracted from forests. Depending on your location, there are different documents to certify the compliance of the wood your furniture was made with.

5 – IMPROVE YOUR CONSUMPTION: AVOID WASTE AND OVERCONSUMPTION

Our consumption patterns are largely based on advertising and on the consumption of products that often are superfluous. It’s important avoid wasting food and to give preference to products with high durability. A simple tip is to never buy clothes that won’t be used frequently.

Always read the labels and search for the origin of the product, in addition to researching the production process.

6 – REDUCE YOUR PAPERWORK

When printing, use the front and back of sheets, opt for digital accounts and refuse any and all useless paper such as physical invoices, payment receipts and paper bills.

7 – RECYCLE

Whenever possible, reuse packaging and objects. Set aside plastic bags and always aim to use reusable bags. If possible, give preference to recycled products.

8 – FIGHT FOR PUBLIC POLICY

It is necessary to push government officials toward public policies that consider reducing greenhouse gas emissions. From the national level, like ensuring adherence to international climate agreements (such as the Paris Agreement) to local measures, such as the construction of sanitary landfills and selective garbage collection throughout your city. The existence of open-air dumps and the irregular burning of waste are still responsible for a large amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

9 – TAKE CARE OF YOUR GARBAGE

As we said earlier, the correct treatment of waste is fundamental for planet survival. Separate organic and recyclable waste and dispose correctly differentiated items, such as batteries.

10 – BUY CARBON CREDITS

One of the ways you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions is by buying carbon credits. Each carbon credit means that a ton of carbon equivalent is no longer emitted into the atmosphere, because these credits come from forest conservation projects that can offset tons of carbon dioxide.

These are simple attitudes that we can take today, but they will help us guarantee the health of our planet for future generations. We can (and should) create a better world for ourselves, for the environment and for our children and grandchildren.
