SeaTrees REDD


About the project

SeaTrees supports the restoration and protection of blue carbon ecosystems to accelerate earth's natural healing systems and reverse climate change. SeaTrees tokens are an innovative way to purchase certified carbon credits and support the development of blue carbon sequestration projects. Every SeaTrees Token offsets 1 ton of CO2, plants 4 mangrove trees, and restores 1square-foot of giant kelp forest.
