Carbon Offsets

Carbon Offsets for Carbon Emissions

What are carbon emissions and carbon offsets?

Everyday activities like commuting, traveling and making basic lifestyle choices produce carbon emissions. As humans participate more in these activities, more carbon emissions are produced. Over time, as these carbon emissions have added to the density of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, our planet is now trapping more heat than it used to and at a rapidly increasing rate.

The good news is that 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 to help reduce both greenhouse gases and the carbon impact of human activity. Plus, they’re an affordable way to show your commitment to sustainable living.
