Carbon Free Dining is an environmental initiative operated by The Green Earth Appeal which gives restaurants and their diners the opportunity to plant life changing fruit trees in the developing world with their meal!
As a diner, by planting a tree with your dining bill, you are effectively offsetting the carbon impact associated with dining out at a restaurant, you are counterbalancing the food waste of your meal, and most importantly you are providing food, education, income and opportunity to developing world communities.
So far diners at Carbon Free Dining Certified Restaurants have helped to plant over 500,000 trees!
That is the equivalent of counterbalancing the carbon impact of over 1 million meals! 🍽🌳
Congratulations to all of the amazing diners and awesome restaurants who have helped to make this possible!
The fruit trees planted by the diners at Carbon Free Dining Certified Restaurant’s are currently being planted in Tanzania, East-Africa.
The tree nurseries in Tanzania give education to communities on how best to use their land, as well as providing food and a sustainable source of income!
Trees offset carbon dioxide (CO₂) from our earth’s atmosphere, and with the huge impact that our modern world is having upon our planet – we are in desperate need of a sustainable solution to counterbalance the negative effect we are having upon our planet.
A single fruit tree during a 40-year lifespan will sequester 1 tonne of CO₂
That’s the equivalent amount of CO₂ emissions produced by flying from London to New York!* 🛫
