CarbonFund.org – Reduce what you can offset what you can’t

The average American’s total carbon footprint is a whopping 50,000 pounds a year. Carbonfund.org makes it easy and affordable for any individual, business or organization to reduce and offset their carbon impact, while helping lead the fight against global warming. The purchase of certified carbon offsets go toward projects that help reduce CO2 and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects globally. Through Carbonfund.org you can estimate your CO2 production at home, at work or while traveling, and then review options to help reduce or offset that carbon footprint. The Carbonfund.org Foundation also promotes climate change education and participates in public outreach projects — encouraging everyone to continually strive to reduce their climate impact through sensible energy reductions. The threat of climate change is real, but by reducing energy consumption and offsetting our carbon footprint we can create a cleaner energy future.
