Indiana Drawdown Solution #13 – Peatlands – Save the Dunes

Throughout history, nobody believed they could run a 4 minute mile. Then one day… Roger Bannister did it. Within two years so did 37 others. Once these people knew it was possible they could break an “impossible” barrier. This is the power of success stories.

Over 100 Hoosiers are already implementing Project Drawdown solutions. Most of them just aren’t aware how much they’re helping the world drawdown emissions.


Did you know that peatlands — aka bogs or mires — only make up 3% of the Earth’s land area but store twice the amount of carbon as all of the world’s forests? Protecting them is an immense opportunity to manage global greenhouse gases.

And did you know Indiana has many peatlands, especially in Northwest Indiana? Save the Dunes is one of the organizations that protects this critical “carbon sink.”
