Your $15 carbon offset purchase eliminates 3,675 lbs. (1 metric ton) of carbon emissions; this is equivalent to reducing your annual driving distance by 3,969 miles (Source: EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator).
This Carbon Offset product is comprised of several carbon reduction projects in our portfolio, including renewable wind energy and landfill gas to energy projects. See our Projects to learn more.
Investing in zero emission wind energy infrastructure displaces fossil-fuel electricity production, while capturing landfill gas and converting methane to energy prevents methane from migrating into the atmosphere at 25 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide, thereby reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
