Every year the US landscaping industry generates over 50 million tons of wood waste.

This results in 13.5 million tons of CO2 being released into the atmosphere each year.

Through school fundraising CarbonZero.eco engages with student activists to offer a better solution to their local landscapers.

Utilizing this student network, CarbonZero.eco is able to redirect wood waste to biochar facilities across the country.

These facilities use a process called pyrolysis which locks in the carbon for over a hundred years and creates a product called biochar.

Farmers utilize Biochar as a fertilizer, with documented increases in crop yields ranging from 20% to 100%.
