Our Reason for Being
TO CONFRONT CLIMATE CHANGE
THROUGH SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
REFORESTATION OF TREES AND SEA KELP
We're committed to planting trees for the longterm health of the planet. Trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere and heal the land of the effects of climate change. And since logging is essential for woodworking and wood finishes is our primary business, this is a solution to not only replace the trees cut down for woodworking, but to create a surplus.
We also plant sea kelp for its ability to absorb carbon at an incredibly fast rate. While trees can take nearly 50 years to reach maturity, sea kelp can grow a foot per day, pulling carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it deep into the ocean floor within the first year of being planted.
Our planet needs a lot of help and this is our contribution to the global effort to fight climate change. Every Walrus Oil product sold supports this mission and together I believe we're making a positive impact.
