Help install 10,000 Carbon Sequestration Devices!
What’s a carbon sequestration device? Here’s a hint: it is often green, has deep roots in Seattle, and needs sunshine.
PLANTS! Douglas Firs, salals, and ferns are all carbon sequestration devices – and they do a pretty great job capturing and storing carbon from the air.
Do you remember how the carbon cycle works? It starts off with carbon and oxygen bound together in the air as carbon dioxide. Plants use that carbon dioxide, along with sunshine,
to make energy and grow. The plants store the carbon, and release the oxygen back into the air.
Come out to a volunteer event and help get these carbon sequestration devices in the ground!
