How many trees are needed to offset your travel to events (and in general)?

Interested in seeing how much your travel to events has an impact? Check out the carbon calculator that Tree Canada put together.

Tree Canada Carbon Calculator

Just driving 50 kilometres, roundtrip, in a compact, gas vehicle requires 1 tree to offset the emissions (gulp)! Please try to carpool, bike, run (ha!), or use public transport where possible (the bus does get within ~5kms of a few of our events, but the route choices are pretty slim unless you’re coming from the city).

If you’d like to consider donating to Tree Canada, here’s the donation page: https://treecanada.ca/main-donation-form-2/

Take care!
