What are carbon offsets and how does it make my lifestyle greener?
Even with the best environmental techniques, the fact is, we are still producing greenhouse gases that are trapped in the atmosphere which eventually alter the precious ecological balance of our planet.
An offset is something that you purchase when you are not able to avoid the emission of a certain amount of C02. We call it an emission reduction credit.
Organizations such as Offsetters use this money to take action against climate change and to finance clean energy projects. This way you help protect our environment even when you have no choice but to produce greenhouse gases during your activities!
