What is Blue Carbon?
Blue carbon refers to the carbon captured by marine and coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, seagrass meadows and salt marshes. These ecosystems essentially work as giant carbon sinks, sequestering vast amounts of carbon from our atmosphere and oceans that would otherwise contribute to global warming. Similar to tropical forests, they sequester carbon… Read More

Phytoplankton
Phytoplankton (or algae) doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves but it is in fact responsible for producing 50% of the world’s oxygen. Just like land plants, these microscopic, ocean-dwelling plants use photosynthesis to grow and in turn play a vital role in the ‘nutrient cycle’ of carbon, nitrogen and… Read More

Regenerative farming-a brief intro.
Just like forests and oceans, soil has the ability to act as a carbon sink, sequestering large quantities of carbon from our atmosphere and cooling our planet. But depending on how land is farmed, it also has the potential to release carbon back into our atmosphere.  Unfortunately as a result… Read More

Kelp: the seaweed helping tackle climate change
Planting trees has long been touted as the answer to reversing climate change. But not as many people know that kelp also plays a monumental role in saving our planet by sequestering carbon from our oceans and atmosphere. Just like trees, seaweed uses photosynthesis to grow, turning carbon dioxide into… Read More
