The animal protection and the environment protection are linked: therefor, we decided to offset the animal 360's carbon footprint .
Why? We are aware that our travel, involving the use of means of transport (plane, bus, train, car...), has negative effects on the environment because it emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
In this way, to offset our carbon footprint seems obvious for our project, which defends animal conditions : the environmental protection is very interrelated!
How? By planting some trees!
We have contacted the cooperative company (based on Luxembourg), which has developped the website www.thetreehub.com. It's a small business which helps to calculate carbon emissions (for all types of transport), and to fund projects of trees plantations.

Thus, we choose to support the reforestation project of Pedra Talhada in Northeast Brazil. These plantations will help to reconnect a primary forest to others forests.

To calculate our carbon footprint, we use a calculator from the goodplanet fondation: for all our trips, we know how many tons of carbon are rejected, and for each ton of carbon, 4 to 5 trees need to be planted.
We also decided to offset our carbon footprint with Reforest'Action, a french company with which we can finance the planting of trees in Haiti, Indonesia, Senegal.
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Belgium: 2 trees
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Cape-Verde: 19 trees
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Thailand: 40 trees of which 20 cocoa trees in Haiti with Reforest'Action
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Sri Lanka: 17 trees in Indonesia with Reforest'Action
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Malaysia: 13 trees in Indonesia with Reforest'Action
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Vietnam: 15 trees in Indonesia (Sumatra) with Reforest'Action
Carbon offsetting of our trip in Laos: 4 trees in la Réunion with Reforest'Action
