Carbon Offsets

Carbon Offsets for Carbon Emissions

What are carbon emissions and carbon offsets?

Everyday activities like commuting, traveling and basic lifestyle choices produce carbon emissions. Over time, as more humans began to participate in these activities, more carbon emissions were produced. This created a thick, insulating layer of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.

As a result, the atmosphere is now trapping more heat than it used to, at a rapidly increasing rate. But we can help balance out the impact of harmful emissions with carbon offsets.

What do carbon offsets do?

Carbon offsets are investments in projects like reforestation efforts, methane capture at landfills and wastewater treatment facilities, and energy efficiency technology. They act as a solution to help negate the carbon impact of human activity and reduce the effects of greenhouse gases. And they’re an affordable way to show your commitment to sustainable living.
