What is blue carbon and why is everyone talking about it?
Concerned about the environment? Of course you are.
The discussion about climate change is impossible to ignore. Now it is time to act and accelerate. At a loss for how to make a big impact? You’ll be surprised at how simple some of the solutions aimed towards mitigating climate change are.
Take giant kelp – giant kelp is a type of seaweed and algae to be precise. And beyond it being greenish and slimy, it does wonders for our environment:
Giant kelp locks away vast amounts of CO2 in ocean sediments. Forever.
This is what blue carbon is all about.
Simply put, blue carbon refers to the carbon that is captured by the world’s ocean and coastal ecosystems. And the reason why it’s so important is because blue carbon strategies are vital in reducing the world’s carbon footprint. They are essential to mitigating and reversing climate change.
At Kelp Blue we’re focused on harnessing the power of giant kelp to lock away C02.
