Port Stephen: Australia:

HUNTER Water has planted more than 100,000 trees around Grahamstown Dam with 30,000 more to go in Irrawang Swamp next month as part of a long-term carbon offset initiative.

A total of 300,000 native trees and shrubs will be planted by Hunter Water through the Tree Planting for Carbon Offsets Program.

The program is one of three being undertaken by Hunter Water to counter emissions produced from the Lower Hunter Recycled Water Initiative.

The initiative will allow water treatment plants to be equipped to recycle more water in the future.
Hunter Water spokesperson Jeremy Bath said the planting program was a way for the corporation to try to remain carbon neutral.

"The trees will offset the carbon emissions produced from the operation of recycled water plants," he said.

"The tree planting will provide the added benefit of enhancing the habitat for local fauna and long-term water quality improvements."  Read full story here...

The simplest way to combat climate change is to plant trees: Trees breathe in Carbon Di Oxide and through the process of photo-synthesis create food for themselves and breathe out Oxygen.

At Sustainable Green Initiative, we plant trees to help the fight against climate change and also hunger, poverty and rural migration. By planting a tree you help in doing your bit to mitigate your carbon footprint and carry on the fight against hunger, poverty and climate change.
