Carbon Offset + Hawaii Native Forest Restoration

This offset offers you the opportunity to actively support the restoration of native Koa forests on the slopes of Mauna Kea. Where native plant and animal species once strived, invasive species like Strawberry Guava took their place silencing the once lush tropical forest. However, CarbonBuddy and Bokoa Farms and Forest have come together to combat invasive species and restore the native ecosystem. By purchasing this offset product,  you will offset your emissions and support this effort to safeguard endemic Hawaiian species in their natural habitat.

You can choose different amounts of offsetting depending on your needs in 0.5t increments. The price of this offset is US$24.50/t. With each $24.50 this product includes:

  • 1 ton of Carbon Offsets (from our currently available international offset projects)
  • 1/2 Native Koa Tree

Through the combination of projects we are able to support more expensive small scale local projects while making sure your emissions are mitigated. You will receive one certificate stating the total amount you chose to offset in this purchase. Please note: 1 ton is equivalent to 2,205lbs.

Find out more about native Koa forest restoration at Bokoa Farms and Forest, here. (I think a link to further information should be provided here. On this page (which can be on your website (or carbonbuddy)) potential customers can then find a more detailed description, maybe an interview with both of us and pictures.)
