Leading the Path to Sustainability.
What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions.
The average carbon footprint for a person in the United States is 16 tons, one of the highest rates in the world. Globally, the average is closer to 4 tons. To have the best chance of avoiding a 2℃ rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per year needs to drop under 2 tons by 2050.
Lowering individual carbon footprints from 16 tons to 2 tons doesn’t happen overnight! By making small changes to our actions, like eating less meat, taking less connecting flights and line drying our clothes, we can start making a big difference.
I travel a lot for work and always felt guilty about contributing to the climate crisis. Having the option to offset my monthly carbon footprint has allowed me to do my job without worrying about how it is impacting the planet.
I have been looking for a way to give back to the planet. Carbon Conscious made it easy and simple to contribute to their reforestation initiatives each month.
I've worked with a lot of climate initiatives over the years before I came across Carbon Conscious. I love their mission and what they are doing is making a real impact on the environment. It takes everyone doing their part to change the course we are on.
