Carbon Offsets

Carbon offsets are easy to calculate and purchase for your family, friends and workplace. Help fund our economic development reforestation projects, our Carbon Game, and get a tax deduction.

 

Carbon Offsets from Community Friends

Community Friends’ carbon offset programs promote sustainable land stewardship, including both carbon sequestration through reforestation and promotion of lifestyle shifts away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources such as eco-friendly micro-hydro power generation. Learn More

Some people buy twice the amount or even ten times the amount of offsets. There are other tailpipe emissions besides carbon and there are many support services to get a plane in the air. Buying offsets for friends and relatives is an educational gift idea to help people learn how easy it is to offset emissions. Read More Carbon Offset Details.
