Prickly Pear Climate Driven Mission
Prickly pear sequester 400 lbs of CO2 per cactus per year. This means that meeting our goal will remove the equivalent of 40,000 cars from the road each year!
Tackle Food Scarcity
Every year prickly pear cacti produce an abundance of delicious fruit and pads that we can use to feed hungry people that need this nutrition the most.
Prickly pear can thrive using just a tiny fraction of the water that other plants need. This means we can grow fruit and capture CO2 while saving our rivers.
