Tree Planting in Iceland | How Your Order Fights Climate Change
Help Us Fight Climate Change
The Mission Iurie Belegurschi's passion for the conservation of Iceland’s nature is an integral part of his photography. Driven by first-hand experience witnessing the retreat of Iceland’s glaciers, he has dedicated his mission and the mission of Iurie | Fine Art to the fight against climate change. This undertaking is part of everything we do, including in the print orders of our works. How Your Print Order Helps Offset your Carbon Footprint We are proud to have partnered with Kolviður, the Iceland Carbon Fund, to offset the carbon footprint of your print shipment through tree planting. Plant a Tree in Iceland The Iceland Carbon Fund will do this by planting a tree in your name as part of the county’s reforestation efforts. This operation is not only critical in the long-term fight against climate change but the short-term protection of the retreating glaciers. The more prints you order, the more trees will be planted in your name. Where Will Your Tree Be Planted? Forests are being regrown in several designated areas within Iceland. Thus far, this includes Geitasandur in the south, Úlfljótsvatn in the south-west, and near Húsavík in the north.
The Iceland Carbon Fund Reduces Carbon Emissions
The more trees planted, the more carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere.
Iceland’s top-soil is protected by deep rooted vegetation such as trees.
Forests protect glaciers from the warm winds that expedite their decline.
How it works
You Order a Print
The first step is to place an order by following the directions on our secure, user-friendly website.
WE SEND FUNDS
Part of the proceeds from your print will be automatically sent to the Iceland Carbon Fund. You will receive a thank you email letting you know where your tree will be planted.
YOUR TREES ARE PLANTED
The Iceland Carbon Fund then plants a tree in your name. These new trees sequester CO2 in forests and decrease the level of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
Why we are doing this
will be an essential part of of the fight against climate crisis though the photosynthesis process, which turns excess carbon dioxide into oxygen
will offset the carbon footprint of your shipment allowing you to order without worry
will combat the soil erosion that threatens Iceland’s other vegetation
will block warm winds that threaten to expedite the melting of Iceland’s glaciers
will create a memento to your commitment to being part of the fight against the climate crisis
we want to
support the protection of Iceland’s nature through tangible actions
empower local groups seeking to advance conservation efforts
