Carbon Offsets

Trees, Water & People invests your carbon offset donation in projects that improve quality of life for rural people in Central America, and that reduce or sequester CO2 emissions.

Planting trees is one of the most efficient ways to sequester CO2, and each year we plant over 100,000 trees that produce fruit, timber, rich soil, and shade while absorbing CO2 to grow.

TWP’s Justa cookstove program generates employment, improves indoor air quality inside a Central American home, and reduces CO2 emissions from cooking with firewood by 50%.

At TWP, we always ensure our offset program meets the needs of local people first, and provides direct, tangible benefits above and beyond the emission reductions.
