The types of projects you fund

Sprout mainly fund two categories of projects in order to offset your carbon footprint: 

 

Tree planting

Planting trees is one of the most effective ways to take C02 out of the atmosphere to tackle the climate crisis. As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving gobal heating.

Through our partnership with Eden Projects you plant trees and  help restore healthy forests around the world.

Forest conservation

It takes years for new trees to grow, so in order to offset your carbon footprint today, we fund certified forest conservation projects that hinders deforestation of existing forest and stops additional carbon from being released into the atmosphere. 

These forest protecting projects are certified at the very highest level by Gold Standard and equivalent.

Our Story

 

Hi, I’m Steffen, founder of Sprout. 

If you’ve got a minute, I’d like to share the unlikely story of how Sprout was born.

 

For years, I was wondering why somebody wasn’t doing anything about climate change – and then I realized that I was that somebody.

I came to learn that the average carbon footprint for people living in Europe is around 10 tons per year. In order for us to reverse climate change, it has to be reduced down to 2 tons.

Understanding that I was part of the problem, I began making personal changes. I got rid of my car, I started eating more sustainable food and I downsized my living standard. But it wasn’t enough – pretty much anything that I spent my money on had a carbon footprint attached to it.

And thats when I got the idea for Sprout. A solution that would make it fun, simple and transparent to offset your carbon footprint.

Here at Sprout, we see the climate crisis as the biggest challenge of our generation. Our goal is to make it easy for people to understand their carbon footprint and then offset the emissions they cannot reduce. With more people living carbon neutral, we can make a huge impact on reversing climate change.

 

But in order to succed, we need you help:

 

  1. If you know any journalists who’d like to break a big story about a small team, trying to save the planet, please reach out at hello@joinsprout.co. We have lots more to say about our little green start-up.🌿
  2. If you know any influencers who can help us get our story out there please share this with them. Better still, share it yourself.
  3. Or next time someone expresses concern around climate change, reply with this question; ‘Did you know that you can grow your own forest and support the highest standard climate projects through a simple subscription.

 

Thank you for sharing.

We can do this. But not without you.

Steffen
