Why carbon offsetting is necessary?

And some steps to do it...

In the last 250 years, Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere have risen dramatically from around 280 to more than 380 parts per million (ppm) due to human activity, particularly the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas, resulting in global warming. This has a negative cascade effect on nature visible as sea-level rise; floods, droughts, and tropical storms; changes in the amount, timing, and distribution of rain, snow, and runoff; and disturbance of coastal marine and other ecosystems. To mitigate the effects of rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere, technically and economically feasible measures are urgently required to reduce human-caused CO2 emissions and remove CO2 from the atmosphere. It can be accomplished through forest and soil conservation practices that enhance carbon storage (such as restoring and establishing new forests, wetlands, and grasslands) or reduce CO2 emissions (such as firewood consumption, developing renewable energy sources like solar, wind etc.). India has enormous potential to be the global leader in carbon offsetting, being the homeland of 130 crores of population.

Koshal Improved Cookstove Project promotion campaign in Odisha

The first step...

Meensou India Private Limited has started Koshal Improved Cookstove Project promotion campaign in Odisha. The project aims to provide a clean and energy-efficient cook stove, “Prathamesh – 1”, to households in rural areas where traditional three-stoned mud stoves are commonly used. These traditional mud stoves emit harmful smoke and contribute to deforestation. Prathamesh – 1 cookstove is made up of mild steel with an energy efficiency of 33.4%, uses less firewood and emits significantly less smoke, making cooking safer and more sustainable. Not only does this project promote cleaner cooking practices, but it also empowers women by reducing their time spent on collecting fuelwood and allowing them to focus on other income-generating activities. There, great enthusiasm is marked among village women for Prathamesh – 1 cookstove, understanding its benefits in day-to-day life.
