Going Carbon Zero
In less than five minutes and for about $99 per year, you can offset your entire carbon footprint.
Carbonfund.org uses your donations to fund renewable power, promote energy efficiency, finance reforestation projects, and fund third party validated offset projects.
The organization goes by the trademarked slogan: "Reduce what you can, offset what you can't."
Over ninety two percent of every dollar donated to Carbonfund.org supports carbon offset projects and the programs designed to sustain and expand their project portfolio and mission of increasing awareness about the causes of and solutions to global warming.
As a nonprofit organization, they provide financial transparency by making their annual reports available for public scrutiny so that donors can see how the organization uses their money. Contributions are also tax-deductible.
Even those outside the U.S. can make a donation to offset their carbon footprint, so this option is open to everyone.
Once Carbonfund.org purchases carbon offsets or supports a carbon reduction project, they gain the right to the emission reductions. And instead of trading, selling, or using these rights to the emission to pollute the environment, Carbondfund.org permanently retires the carbon reductions they buy. This means that the rights to emissions get taken out of circulation forever.
For those who have already adopted a green lifestyle and want to further reduce their carbon footprint, making a donation to Carbonfund.org is an option. For those who are unable or unwilling to make changes to live a greener lifestyle, making a donation would support those who are already in the trenches fighting to save the environment from further degradation. Either way, do something good for the earth today because it's the right thing to do.
