Designer Nitipak Samsen has created a measuring tape to translate the amount of carbon stored in a tree into the amount of carbon emitted by activities like breathing and car journeys.

Called Tree Tape, the product can be downloaded from Samsen's website, printed and assembled for use in schools.

Each one printed can be customised for the appropriate tree and activity.

The following information is from Samsen:


Ever wondered how much CO2 absorbed in a tree? And how much is how much?

In the process of developing the BuyProduct project, I designed a tree measuring tape for children. This tape translates how much CO2 absorbed in the tree into the amount of activities rather than grams of CO2, e.g. 1 hour on a flight or 2 days of breathing.

Since then I received quite a few interests wanted to use it in schools. So I decided to make it available for public to create and try it for themselves.

I've made a web app, user selects the tree type and the activity, it will create the PDF which will be printed, cut, glued and ready to try.
