Example CO2 calculation
You drive 10,000 km per year with a petrol-driven car. Over the whole year you emit +/- 2240 kg CO2.
The rainforest that we protect in Costa Rica holds 30 kg of CO2 per square meter.
If you adopt 2240/30=74 m² of rainforest per year, you can go on the road with a slightly better feeling.
This will only cost you 16 euros per month.
For our calculations we have taken an average value for the number of kg CO2 that lowland rainforest holds. For the values of CO2 emissions for different vehicles, we used the figures from Milieu Centraal.
