Welcome! CarbonBankUSA is the environmental outreach program of Cill Ide Native Plant Nursery

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a significant greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions are a major contributor to the Greenhouse Effect.

Throughout our daily lives, we each contribute to the build-up of CO2 in the atmosphere, so we each have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to do something positive to solve the problem.

What Can You?

The most important is to reduce CO2 emissions.  This can be done at a personal as well as a national level. Minimizing the use of fossil fuels, and living more gently on the Earth are all feasible.

To help counter the effects of travel and transport, Cill Ide Native Plant Nursery will plant trees to absorb the CO2 produced, using the simple formula which follows.

   * Air travel - Each hour or 576 miles produces CO2 which may be absorbed by a quarter of a tree
    
   * Car travel - Each 621 miles. produces CO2 which may be absorbed by a half of a tree

   * Train/Coach travel - Each 621 miles produces CO2 which may be absorbed by a tenth of a tree

How Can I Help?
