A better world is possible with woodhot
Make some S’mores and fix climate change on your next camping trip. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not and here’s why….
Unlike other firestarters, WoodHot is a regenerative product because when you purchase your case of WoodHot, we plant a tree on your behalf.
Why is this important?
Instead of being in the “business as usual”, take-make-waste system that doesn’t help nature, we are closing the loop and giving back to the Earth to replenish what was used in the creation of this product.
This linear ‘take-make-waste’ consumer system has massively contributed to warming our planet’s environment and climate change effects occurring more and more frequently.
One of the ways this has happened is we use too many raw materials, like trees, faster than they can be replanted. This undermines the Earth’s ability to breathe and give us oxygen in the process.
Through a process called photosynthesis, leaves pull in carbon dioxide (CO2) and water and use the energy of the sun to convert this into chemical compounds such as sugars that feed the tree. But as a by-product of that chemical reaction oxygen (O2) is produced and released by the tree. It is proposed that one large tree can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to four people. Global forests removed about one-third of fossil fuel emissions annually from 1990 to 2007.
Beyond helping with global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide, trees are like our superheroes!
Roadside trees reduce nearby indoor air pollution by more than 50%. Trees provide vital wildlife habitat. Trees and forests provide important species range. Many animals have a range of hundreds of square miles. The mountain lion of North America, for instance, has a range of nearly 400 square miles.
Office workers with a view of trees report significantly less stress and more satisfaction.
Chicago public housing residents with nearby trees and natural landscapes reported 25% fewer acts of domestic aggression and violence.
