What on Earth is Carbon Offset?
Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding renewable energy, forestry, or clean water projects. These projects reduce emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online. EcoCart calculates the emissions created from your online orders and donates the exact monetary amount required to reduce those emissions directly to these projects on your behalf.
How do I know my money is going to the right place?
With your help, we’re finding projects that are truly additive (meaning new), permanent, and without unintended consequences (i.e. creating more carbon elsewhere, like a game of Whack-a-Mole). All of our projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards.
Every project we fund is triple-verified. Triple-verification means:
1. The project’s financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.
2. One of the world’s major carbon standards reviews the project.
3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.
