Spekbooms are indigenous to South Africa and have an amazing ability to absorb a high degree of carbon from the air. One hectare of spekbooms can absorb up to 4.2 tonnes of CO2 per year. This allows one spekboom to approximately absorb 0.042 kg of CO2 per year. If you want to compensate for the carbon emissions of your coat, planting some spekbooms are a great option. We partner with the Spekboom foundation, which plants spekbooms in communities. One spekboom costs 70 Rand (= 5.20$) to be planted.
