2.5% for Tomorrow
We’ve been fans of air since our first breath. We like ours served neat, pine-scented, and hold the carbon (Please).
Our love of air and our love of travel has left us wrestling with a bit of a quandary…
Travel offers new perspectives on the world, which leads us to care for the planet more deeply.
Travel comes at a carbon cost.
We could all just stay home and not interact with the world. But, then we’ll die sad and miss out on a lot of great street food.
“Well then,” we thought, “what if we just invent a machine that directly captures carbon from the air and then permanently stores it back in the ground where it came from?” Alas, somebody beat us to it.
If this technology already exists, the people need to know about it! Alas, Tomorrow’s Air is doing that work and they’re doing it well. So, we’re going to join forces with them.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re committing 2.5% of trip revenues to Tomorrow’s Air. Tomorrow’s Air is a travel collective inspiring and engaging travelers and travel companies to help scale up the use of carbon removal technology – cleaning up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere quickly, and storing it permanently.
They’re doing the good work of teaching we adventurers about actual solutions and making it easy to get active in solving this.
Longstanding members of the Lost Community will know that we support tree planting and have planted quite a few in the past. Trees gotta live too!
The thing is, even if we could plant all the trees we wanted, they couldn’t take enough carbon out of the air fast enough.
“Nature – think of our planet’s trees, ocean, soil – all absorb carbon dioxide and store it. However these natural systems can take many years to absorb carbon dioxide. For example, when trees are planted, it will typically take at least ten years until the carbon dioxide is removed from the air. Deploying carbon removal technologies such as direct air capture alongside our protection and conservation of nature can help us remove carbon dioxide fast and restore our climate.” – Tomorrow’s Air
It took human ingenuity to get us into this situation. We’ll need technology to help dig us out too.
