You have landed on a simple yet profound way to contribute to saving our planet and our humanity. Widely adopted tree currency would end many of the human-created/socioeconomic and environmental problems of today. Thank you Dave.

This is a contribution from the denizen service of corcovado - A group of 8 people currently contributing 1% of their income monthly into a pot to grow corcovado. - from £1100 in the community account it was decided to invest £500 into corco coin!

A great way to help battle climate change. What I would really love to know is how individuals or businesses can calculate their carbon footprint so we know how many trees we need to plant to offset our carbon output per annum.
