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.
