Since its creation 90 years ago, the Airstream community has been devoted to its outdoor adventure partner, the environment. A Caravan to Carbon Neutral Carbon Reduction Kit is the perfect way to help meet one of the most significant challenges to the places we love. Your tax-deductible purchase through the National Forest Foundation (NFF) of a Platinum level kit enables the NFF to plant 250 trees in our National Forests. Those added trees will support some of our most popular outdoor adventure spaces and help sequester approximately 125 tons of carbon, roughly the amount emitted by driving a passenger vehicle 310,000 passenger miles, which is equal to 12 trips around the world.
Carbon sequestration is facilitated through the National Forest Foundation’s (NFF’s) existing tree planting program. NFF has committed to use best efforts, along with the United States Forest Service to complete tree planting within twelve (12) months of receipt of funds; carbon sequestration estimates through tree planting are calculated using the value of .5 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) sequestered per tree over its estimated lifetime of 100 years. Mileage equivalencies are estimated using the EPAs Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator.
