14 June 2012 | BATON ROUGE | Louisiana | The next time you fly over northeast Louisiana, you may see the remnants of thick forests that once supported waterways and habitat across the state. If the flight you’re on is with Delta Airlines, you might even be helping to bring the forests back.
That’s because some Delta passengers who choose the carbon-neutral option contributed to the creation of the Tensas River Basin Forest Carbon Project in Franklin Parish, Louisiana – one of two forest-carbon projects that were registered with the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) today. The other – the Bayou Bartholomew Project in Morehouse Parish – gets the bulk of its funding from Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI).
