At Rogue Iron Disc Golf, one of our Core Values is to make the world a better place. We think planting trees is one small step in the right direction. Every time someone purchases and registers their product, they will be helping us plant a tree. In addition, this is a NetZero website, meaning that our website’s emissions are calculated based on the number of visits it receives and the appropriate number of trees will be planted to offset them.
agua, l'eau, aqua, acqua
Trees purify water and slow down rain by filtering it with their roots. This process prevents erosion and reduces the risk of saturation and flooding.
Roughly 1/3 of the world’s largest cities rely on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water. This includes cities such as New York and Singapore.
aire, aria, luft, hawa
Trees and forests are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.
In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.
Trees cool the surrounding air by providing shade and by a process called transpiration cooling. This is where trees release water droplets from their leaves that cool the surrounding area when they evaporate.
beneficios sociales, avantages sociaux
We derive many medicines from tree bark, leaves and flowers of different species. These are usually used in herbal medicine, but many compounds in pharmaceutical industries are based on those originally extracted from trees.
Many of the world’s extreme poor live close to a forested area. Food, drink and equipment obtained from these forests can account for up to 28% of total household earnings in some tropical and subtropical regions.
Trees and nature have been shown to improve mental health and cognition in both healthy individuals and those suffering from mental illness.
faune, tierwelt, dzikiej przyrody
Forests support approximately 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. This ranges from small invertebrates to large mammals.
Trees also support large numbers of insect populations, with some trees such as Birch and willow supporting upwards of 300 species of insect.
As many as 100 species a day could go extinct from the loss of closed tropical rain forests.
clima, klimaat, climatizado, climat
Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tonnes of CO2, roughly 1/3 of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.
Deforestation enhances climate change by releasing stores of CO2. Roughly 18% of global emissions comes from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e) which is more than the world’s entire transport sector.
