In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we gathered tips on how to celebrate in the greenest of ways. Bring the “luck of the Irish” to the environment with these tips for a sustainable holiday!
Support Green Planting
The first green buds of plants are starting to show and while this might not be a typical St. Patty’s Day, you can help support farmers across the United State doing regenerative farming practices! CIBO believes in helping each farmer connect with land in a new way.
We’ve developed technologies that help farmers reap the benefits of doing the right thing. Our process distills data into actionable information enabling growers to take control. CIBO’s integrated marketplace defines value to guide carbon credits, forging broad-scale sustainable paths for the entire food chain.
Is there a specific state or farmer you would like to purchase your carbon credits from in the US? CIBO can help! Use our search parcel and find parcels with carbon credits available for purchase. From our main map, you can find fields with available carbon credits marked with flags.
Make Your Diet More Green
Planning to make a green meal to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Whether you are choosing corned beef and cabbage or green vegetables, such as zucchini, broccoli and avocado to celebrate, you’re leaving a carbon footprint.
Each type of diet and foot leaves a different carbon footprint. Overall, animal-based foods tend to have a higher footprint than plant-based. Lamb and cheese both emit more than 20 kilograms CO2-equivalents per kilogram. Poultry and pork have lower footprints but are still higher than most plant-based foods, at 6 and 7 kg CO2-equivalents, respectively.2
An average American’s diet has a carbon footprint of around 2.5 tonnes of CO2e per person each year.1 Looking to make a green choice this St. Patrick’s Day? Purchase carbon credits to offset your food for the year. We’ve broken it down by diet from meat lover to vegan.
