Some of our everyday actions also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
An oak tree absorbs 5,000 kg of CO2 to live
How are these emissions absorbed?
Plants help reduce the impact of our emissions, since they need CO2 to live. However, not all require the same amount, depending on the species, age or environment in which they are located.
