Be carbon neutral

Offset 100% of your personal emissions each month with Carbon.so

Get Started
Live carbon neutral For As little $3.50/week
Each month we offset your emissions into a handful of verified carbon offset projects—helping you to easily and effectively manage your personal impact better and live life carbon-free.

Here's how it works

Live carbon neutral in 3 easy steps.
1.

Select amount to offset

Select how much you'd like to offset each month — choose from offsetting 50% or 100% of your emissions. Or live carbon positive and offset the equivalent of yourself and 2x other humans.

2.

Get notified on new projects

Each month we carefully select 3x projects to offset your emissions into for that month. We'll send you a monthly email update with details about theses project and the positive impact you're creating.

3.

Grow your offset portfolio

Over the course of a year, you'll be able to see that you have grown a diverse portfolio of offset projects and learn about the emissions you've reduced and life on earth you've supported.

And step 4 is always remember continue to reduce your emissions and impact where you can.

You can also check to see an estimate of your carbon emission using our super simple carbon calculator.

This month's projects

Below are the offset projects we've selected for your for this month

PROJECT TYPE — WIND
Renewable energy generation from wind farm in Mongolia
by Forests Alive

The goal of this project is to reduce green house gas emissions of the main power grid in Mongolia by producing clean wind generated energy. It will save an estimated ~200,000 tonnes of CO2e annually. This project has also been developed to help create jobs for the region and introduce renewables to the countries.

Primary project benefits:
🌱 Environmental → cleaner air
⚡️ Production → energy
💼 Social → job creation
📈 Economic → new investment
🚥 Technology → growth

PROJECT TYPE — WIND
Micro wind farm produces renewable energy for the grid in India
by Forests Alive

Wind generated power from a handful of turbines in India. This project mitigates GHG emissions that would have otherwise been produced by coal and other non-renewable means of power generation for the grid.

Primary project benefits:
🌱 Environmental → cleaner air
⚡️ Production → energy
💼 Social → job creation
🚥 Technology → growth

PROJECT TYPE — BIOMASS ENERGY + WASTE/LANDFILL
Using rice husks to generate electricity in Cambodia
by Forests Alive

By using rice husks to power electricity generators in Cambodia, this project mitigates carbon emissions from not using diesel oil. The power generated particularly powers a rice mill and any surplus energy is provided to the local grid.

Primary project benefits:
🌱 Environmental → cleaner air + land
⚡️ Production → energy
🚥 Technology → growth

Our trusted offset providers

We only work with trusted and well recognised third party offset providers, such as Gold Standard & Verified Carbon Standard so you can be assured your emissions being offset are permanent, accurate and highly positively impactful.
Our purpose + vision

We want to enable everyone to understand and act upon their carbon footprint. We believe that giving people the tools to live more sustainable lives with ease and effortlessness is the key to solving this enormous and complex problem we human beings have created.

Carbon offsets is only the beginning of what we're creating at Carbons.so to help us all manage our own personal emissions better.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know my emissions are actually being offset?

We only use verified third party offsets from Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Offsets. These guys are the ones who verify that offset projects are what they say they are. They put them through rigorous auditing process to check the validity of the projects claims and . You can also view the list of offsets we've invested in for you here.

How much of my money goes directly to offset projects?

70-90% of your funds is invested into the offset projects we support. The remaining goes to further development, upkeep costs, wages, marketing and growth to spread the word to more people about this project.
We calculated this to be a good amount as a well priced product, remain afloat as a business so that we're able to achieve the things we have planned toward our goal and purpose. We'll be sharing more about where we're heading with Carbon.so shortly. You can follow me (Liam) on Twitter to receive updates about Carbon.so and view our roadmap here.

What is carbon offsetting and how does it work?

Think of carbon offsetting kind of like an old school scale where you have 2 pans either side. The goal is to try and evenly balance objects on either side. But in this case we're trying to balance the amount of CO2 or carbon emissions that you produce with something that reduces or removes carbon, such as planting trees.
As an example, let's say you produce 10 carbon emissions in a day (this is not a real measure, but just for the sake of this explanation let's just run with it), which of course has a severe negative effect on the planet. However, let's say planting 1 tree removes 1 carbon emission, which means you'll need to plant 10 trees to take away those 10 carbon emissions you produced. Thus making you carbon neutral. And that's what carbon offsetting is.

Is my carbon footprint really so big (22t CO2)?

The short answer, it depends. As we're still in the process of building our super sleek carbon calculator, we can't tell you exactly how much you emit. However, depending on your lifestyle, your country and a number of other factors such as how much you consume, fly, buy, eat and more depends on your unique carbon footprint.
We decided we wanted to be sure we were offsetting most of the world's people amount by averages. So we set the bar high at one of the largest per capita carbon emitters in the world — Australians. That way if you sign up from Germany, for example, who on average emit 7.5 tonnes of CO2 per year, then you'll be more than covered, in fact you'll be carbon positive.

Are you a non-profit?

No we aren't a non-profit. But we are purpose driven — we want continue to develop tools that allow humans to manage and act upon their carbon emissions with ease and effortlessness.

Can I offset my family?

Yes of course! This feature also isn't public just yet, however, contact us here and just let us know here how many people are in your family that you'd like to offset

How do I offset my business?

We haven't launch business offsets publicly yet, but we're able to help you do this no problemo. Just drop us a message here to work out offsets for your business.

What do you have planned for future?

You can see our roadmap here. We really want to hear your thoughts and feedback back, so feel free to leave comments.
