Samba School – how offsetting reaches unlikely places

It’s probably fair to say that when most people think of offsetting, they think of tree planting. And that is one way that offsetting can have a positive effect on the world. Some offsetting projects go further however like at the biomass project in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they certainly bring smiles to local faces.

Every year the project donates a percentage of their sustainably fired building blocks to local causes, such as a learning centre for young adults with disabilities and a samba school for marginalized children. The children really take sustainability seriously – they even use old computer keyboards as percussion instruments. By offsetting your travel carbon footprint with BP Target Neutral, as well as making a difference to the environment, you’re also supporting the valuable social and economic benefits to local communities like Rio Bonito.
