CELEBRATING 13 YEARS OF FOREVER CHEESE PARTNERSHIP WITH CARBONFUND.ORG FOUNDATION!

December 21, 2020

Since 2007, Forever Cheese has partnered with Carbonfund.org Foundation to actively support reforestation and renewable energy projects, demonstrating the proactive steps it is taking to fight against global climate change. Forever Cheese, pioneering importer of unique cheeses and specialty foods from Italy, Spain, Portugal and Croatia, has spent the past 13 years making donations that are the equivalent of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from over 30 million miles driven by the average passenger vehicle, CO2 emissions from over 1,900 homes electricity usage for 1 year, or carbon sequestered by over 12,000 acres of US forest. This past year they have invested 80% of their funds in U.S. renewable energy projects (including both wind and hydro-electric) and 20% of their funds in reforestation.

“We are very proud of our thirteen-year partnership with Forever Cheese,” said Eric Carlson, President at Carbonfund.org Foundation. “Their generous support toward our world class renewable energy and reforestation projects have made a substantial impact on climate change mitigation. We commend Forever Cheese for partnering on this vital work to ensure a better future for the next generation.”

Forever Cheese partners with many suppliers and farms that use alternative energy like solar or biogas for power. They help support and uplift small closed-circle, sustainable producers and continually look for ways to increase their commitment to preserving the environment. This combination of both internal and external carbon reductions helps Forever Cheese reach their sustainability objectives while protecting important biodiversity and encouraging the shift to clean energy solutions.

“We are very proud of our longstanding relationship with Carbonfund.org Foundation.  We believe wholeheartedly in their mission and projects supporting wind energy, reforestation and carbon footprint offsets and will work harder than ever to obtain a cleaner, brighter future,” said Michele Buster, President of Forever Cheese.

Forever Cheese is dedicated to sourcing the most unique and highest quality cheeses and specialty foods of the Mediterranean. For the last 20 years, owner Michele Buster has been importing and educating Americans on these unusual and fantastic products. Carbonfund.org, the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solution organizations, supports third party renewable energy in the U.S and abroad to reduce CO2 pollution. The support Carbonfund.org Foundation receives for carbon reduction projects offer important climate change solutions that benefits both planet and people. Carbonfund.org Foundation helps both social and environmental commitments by supporting third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects around the world.
