NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- One Tree
Pledge, a new sustainability campaign by Michael Ziman of Ziman Development, helps home
dwellers and businesses negate the carbon emissions generated by
electricity and natural gas usage. Ziman is inviting everyone to go
green and make the One Tree Pledge, agreeing to plant one tree for
every one square foot of their property. Tree planting will be
coordinated through American Forests, the nation's oldest nonprofit
conservation organization, for only $1 per tree. For a one-time-only investment of
$1 per square foot, everyone can
create a carbon negative footprint for their home/office.
"As a builder, specializing in beach homes, it is important for
me to align my outdoor interests with my values. We can offset
greenhouse gas emissions from our homes and businesses by planting
trees. I invite everyone to join me and make the One Tree Pledge,"
says Michael Ziman, Founder of One
Tree Pledge. "Through our partnership with American Forests, we
have made it easy and affordable to plant trees for only
$1 per tree. If we want our families
to enjoy our planet, we have to create a more sustainable
The U.S. Energy Administration reports that the average home
(measuring 2,386 sq. ft.) releases 20,260 lbs. of carbon annually
through consumption of electricity and natural gas. According to
American Forests, the average tree consumes 10 lbs. of carbon each
year. If one tree is planted for every one square foot of an
average home, the trees would sequester 23,680 lbs. of carbon
annually – surpassing the 20,260 lbs. of carbon emissions.
Committing to the One Tree Pledge negates the carbon impact of the
house and ensures a carbon negative footprint, removing more carbon
from the atmosphere than the home emits.
"Forests are the best nature-based solution to climate change,"
says Jad Daley, President and CEO of
American Forests. "Our current rate of carbon emissions is not
sustainable, with disastrous effects like the recent unprecedented
western wildfires. Now, more than ever, we must take action to
combat climate change and restore our forests, ensuring our supply
of clean air and water."
All home dwellers, builders and businesses are encouraged to
make the pledge. Make the pledge here or learn more by visiting
