“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second best time is now.”
When you think about the main causes of global warming you probably think of coal mines, factories spewing out dirty chemicals, or plastics polluting our oceans. Yet it’s actually transportation which is one of the major causes, with reports suggesting that cars, trucks, ships, trains, and planes create 28% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
This is why riding your bike to get around town can be so beneficial - not just for your health, but the whole world’s.
By cycling to work, rather than driving, you’re helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create a more sustainable tomorrow; something we believe in strongly here at See.Sense.
Of course there are other ways we can reduce emissions, and one such way is to plant trees which can draw the excess carbon out of our atmosphere.
This is why, since 2014, See.Sense has been a supporter of the tree-planting charity WeForest. Through our ‘Buy Two, Get One Tree’ initiative - where we plant a tree with WeForest for every set of See.Sense lights sold on our website - we’ve helped WeForest plant thousands of trees in developing countries.
So, next time you’re out riding with your See.Sense lights, give yourself a pat on the back as not only are you reducing transport emissions, you’re also helping to create a cleaner future.
You can learn more about our work with WeForest on their website, or in the video below.
