Water

Scientific studies show that forested riverbanks provide a reliable and cost-­‐effective strategy for protecting clean water. The benefits that these forests provide are wide-­‐ranging, including clean and safe drinking water, habitat for fish and wildlife, and recreational opportunities that are critical for a community’s economy and quality of life. 

Most carbon offset programs focus only on carbon reduction, but the Clear Water Carbon Fund also protects clean water and fish and wildlife habitat.  Planting trees along stream and river banks allows individuals and businesses to simultaneously take action on protecting clean water and fighting climate change.
