What are Carbon Offsets?

What Are Carbon Offsets?

Whether it’s buying a manufactured product or driving a car, our daily activities produce carbon emissions that put harmful carbon dioxide into the environment. To help reduce the impact of the carbon emissions we produce each day, Terrapass carbon offsets fund projects like reforestation, farm power, and landfill gas capture to remove carbon from the environment.
