Be carbon neutral

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

Get Started
Live carbon neutral for only $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 2 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 months projects

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

Reforestation and Protection of Tasmanian Native Forest
by Forests Alive

This project has helped and continues to  avoid 280,000 tCO2e of emissions each year. This is the equivalent of 59,448 cars not being each year. There are thirteen landowners who collectively protect 36,000 hectares of native forest from logging activities and undertake afforestation.
The project also protects native wildlife, ecology and creates ecotourism.

Tasmanian, Australia
Improved cooking stoves and fuel efficiency for communities in Malawi
by Hestian

As well as saving thousands of infant lives from unsafe cooking conditions, this project also contributes to reducing deforestation from wood fuel usage.
Many Malawians don't have access to electricity.  The only way they can soften their carbohydrates in order to avoid starvation is by burning wood to boil water. This project helps to prevent premature deaths, increase heath, reduce deforestation and create jobs for these South African communities.

Malawi
Using technology to turn chicken litter into renewable electricity in India
by IOT Mabagas

This Gold Standard certified waste-to-energy project converts up to 120,000 tons/year of chicken litter and bio products into renewable electricity, which is able to be used by South Indian locals. Besides the avoidance of methane emissions from waste chicken manure, the typically carbon intensive electricity generation is mitigated with renewable sources and as a bonus solves hygienic problems in the region as well.

Namakkal, India

Our trusted offset providers

We only work with trusted and well recognised third party offset providers so you can be assured your emissions being offset are permanent, accurate and long term.
Our purpose + goal

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. They verify that offset projects are what they say they are and put them through rigorous auditing process to check the validity of the projects claims. You can also view the list of offsets we've invested in for you here.

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.

How do much of my money goes directly to offset projects?

80% 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.

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.

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

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

The answer is, it depends. Depending on your lifestyle, your country and a number of other factors such as how much you consume, fly, buy and eat depends on your unique carbon emission footprint. So 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.
