Centric is happy to announce it will once again be working with
Action Network (RAN) to offset carbon emissions
generated in 2011.
Manufacturing and distribution of World Centric products generated a
total of 5,391 tons of carbon in 2011. Through a $25,000 grant to RAN's
Climate Action Fund and Protect-an-Acre program, World Centric will be
offsetting 4,927 tons of carbon. The additional amount of carbon will
be offset through a $2,000 donation to support tree planting projects
implemented by People
for Progress in India.
World Centric is investing directly in community-based organizations,
Indigenous federations and small NGOs that are working to protect
millions of acres of forest. The projects these grant programs support
help prevent forest loss while also sequestering carbon from the
atmosphere through ecosystem restoration and reforestation.

Centric donates to Seattle based People
for Progress in India (PPI)
to support grassroots social and environmental projects.
A recent project funded through PPI was a two-year tree-planting
campaign to reduce carbon emissions and create a greener environment in
three villages of the Duglapura cluster in Tarikere, India. The
project began in 2010 and has resulted in the successful
planting of more than 2,500 agro-horticulture plants (such as sapota,
mango, lemon and jack fruit), 3,000 agro-forestry plants (teak, neem
and silver oak) and a variety of herbal medicinal plants. Tree
survival rates have been extremely successful, with the majority of
tree varieties achieving survival rates of over 90%.
Timely care, monitoring, maintenance and water access
contributed to sustain the planted trees. In addition, an awareness
program was facilitated to discuss the value of bio-diversity
conservation and best practices for organic farming systems.
