A new initiative to plant a Cardano Forest has been launched by the Cardano Foundation in conjunction with the Climate Neutral Cardano Group (we are part of the founding cohort of stake pools), which has a goal to plant a million trees.
It’s only been launched for a day and as of writing has already hit 174,000 trees. When the number of trees reaches 218,000 it will completely offset the carbon emissions from power used to operate the stake pools for the entire Cardano blockchain.
Veritree will run the scheme and provide verification on the blockchain on trees planted. We will share updates as the trees are planted and will share the NFTs issued back with delegators via PoolPerks.io.
We are really pleased to be part of this initiative, and have just donated 5,000 trees. It’s all made possible by your support of the ADAvault pools.
