How do you start your day? Unplug your phone, start the coffee maker, cook some breakfast, watch the news, maybe start some laundry? 

It’s often hard to connect the dots between these everyday actions and climate change. But until we convert our energy systems to renewables, flipping the lights on, driving to work, or flying across the world unfortunately does mean contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. 

The good news? You can neutralize your carbon emissions through carbon offsetting! Carbon offsetting is the process of paying to support a project that will sink as much carbon as you emit. Carbon offsetting encourages consumers to be accountable for their impact on the environment and pay the true cost of their goods and services. 

If the world of carbon offsetting is confusing to you, you’re not alone. Carbon offsetting can be an effective way to combat climate change and account for individual behaviors that would otherwise negatively impact the environment, and so it’s important to understand how it works and how to discern the best services available.

Carbonbase is a young platform that flips the overly complicated world of carbon offsetting into a digestible and frankly, fun experience for consumers. By taking a quick quiz, you can easily start your journey to carbon neutrality and be connected to impactful carbon-sinking projects around the globe. Cory spoke with Max and Elliot on the Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Podcast to learn more about the community they’re building to fight climate change.

In our Episode with Max and Elliot, we discuss

  • What is carbon offsetting?
  • How did Max & Elliot develop Carbonbase?
  • What differentiates Carbonbase from other carbon offsetting companies?
