JNF offers carbon offsets


The Jewish National Fund is launching an environmental awareness program that will propose offsetting carbon dioxide by planting trees in Israel.

In an announcement Thursday, JNF said its “GoNeutral” program is timed for Rosh Hashana.

“At www.jnf.org/goneutral, visitors can calculate the average amount of carbon dioxide they emit each year by answering a series of questions about their lifestyles and energy consumption, and then offset these emissions by supporting JNF’s century-old afforestation program in Israel,” the release says.
