HOW IT WORKS
We pool everyone’s membership contributions.Each month we take an assessment of available funds that come in from monthly contributions. We take a portion of these to cover operating expenses, and the rest gets put into an abatement fund.
We turn membership dollars into restoration.
Using everyone’s contributions we restore and conserve lands that remove CO2 from the air. We do this blending technology and a novel way of restoring natural environments that is quicker than just planting trees.
We KEEP you UPDATED oN PROGRESS.
Every month we send you an update on our progress and how your membership fee has helped, and as a member you’ll also get all sorts of perks.
What members are saying:
Who doesn’t have a few bucks per month to donate to climate change, AND they can track it – like see actual results.
Using our pooled resources, we’re setting off on a mission to buy land, mineral, sea, and air rights and convert them into private conservation areas.
Nearly 5 billion acres of degraded and deforested land awaits restoration worldwide. Forests offset carbon, provide health benefits by removing air pollution, and offer areas for recreation and outdoor sports. Help us as we work towards conservation and reforestation.
The Great Plains of the U.S. and Canada have lost a more significant proportion of intact grassland than the Brazilian Amazon has lost rainforest. What once was a bastion of biodiversity has been converted into farmland or used for grazing and pasture. Our goal is to reclaim this land and work to re-establish the North American Prairie.
Peatlands store twice as much carbon as all the earth’s standing forests yet make up only 3% of the world’s land surface area. From a climate perspective, they are the most important terrestrial ecosystem but are under threat from human impact, deforestation, conversion to agriculture, peat mining, and infrastructure development.
TARGET IMPACT AREAS
If every working American pledged 10 basis points of their income to conservation we could invest over $6 billion annually to preserve the beauty of our planet, that averages to less than $5 a month per person.
Today, less than 3% of giving focuses on preserving our environment and fighting climate change, however, due to deforestation, overfishing, irresponsible tourism, single-use plastics, etc. are causing an environmental crisis the like of which we’ve never seen before.
The earth is getting hotter; plastics are everywhere, reefs, species, and ecosystems are dying out at accelerated rates.
Sadly, the response from our politicians has been less than ideal. Too many companies care only about maximizing shareholder value, regardless of the cost to our environment.
It’s time to do something, to take it into our own hands, and stop climate change.
WHAT CAN I DO?
Become a part of the moment, tell others to get involved, join Half Basis, buy something from our shop. Every dollar that comes in brings us closer to restoring an acre of land to its natural beauty.
As we start, we’re focusing on reestablishing forests and grasslands and preserving our peatlands by buying land and mineral rights.
OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE
To conserve and reestablish as much of our earth’s ecosystem as possible, invest in ecological research, and share both with all mankind.
COMMITTED TO TRANSPARENCY
We’re an open company.
Transparency is at the heart of our organization. We want everyone who pledges to know where their money is going, and what impact it’s having.
FROM OUR BLOG
Planting trees isn't enough. It is an overly simplistic approach to a carbon dioxide abatement problem that is inherently much more complex. To mitigate climate change, we have to look at the problem holistically. We need to take into consideration not only the topic...
I had just turned 40 years old, and 2019 was going to be a big year for me. I hit what felt like a significant life milestone and I was getting married to the love of my life, and I just sold my digital agency. There was a lot to reflect on. One of the issues I was...
