We are very excited to announce that Leilani Münter, professional race car driver and environmental activist, supports the Code REDD Campaign and its mission to make forests more valuable ALIVE than dead through the Voluntary Carbon Market. Münter, a biology graduate who has long been known as The Carbon Free Girl, will offset her emissions from racecar driving through Code REDD’s high quality Verified Emissions Reductions, and encourages her fans to do the same!
In addition, this video highlighting Münter’s support for the Code REDD Campaign will be aired for 4 days from Thursday July 26th – Sunday July 29th at the entrance to the Indianapolis Speedway’s NASCAR Brickyard 400 Super Weekend, ensuring that thousands of racing fans learn about Code REDD and the importance of REDD+ emissions reductions.
“We are in a race against deforestation” Leilani affirmed, adding that “in the time it takes me to finish one race, 7,500 acres of forest will be lost to deforestation.” Since 2007, Münter has adopted an acre of rainforest for every race she runs, and with this new effort she hopes to bring greater awareness to the public about Code REDD, a radical new campaign that is using the power of the marketplace to stop deforestation, protect wildlife, and provide real sustainable development opportunities for forest communities.
Leilani’s motto is “Never underestimate a vegetarian hippie chick with a race car.” After having the opportunity to see this girl in action, we certainly won’t underestimate her ability to make this world a better place! Leilani, we thank you for your support!
So join Leilani and voice your support of Code REDD.
