Account for CO2 emissions from individual or family travel and support meaningful sustainability projects.
Whether you are planning a wedding, a vacation, or a family gathering, or want to account for your annual carbon footprint, Earth Deeds can help you raise awareness about climate change and engage others around supporting local solutions to global warming. Rather that carbon offsetting, we call this carbon onsetting. Here’s how onsetting works:
Create a “Team”: A Team is any size group connected through a common event or activity, such as a family trip or a wedding. You can even be a team of one.
Choose a Project: We can help you identify a local initiative to support based on your interests and values. Projects are not limited to ones mitigating CO2 and we have a database of over 100,000 projects if you need help in finding one.
Measure Emissions: We provide you with custom calculators and reports to measure, understand, and track your travel emissions. We’re happy to offer technical support and consulting as needed.
Contribute Funds: You and others contribute online based on the social cost of carbon, which is the best scientific estimate of the actual costs of emitting greenhouse gases. We also provide crowdfunding tools to help solicit additional funding if desired.
Support the Project: We transfer collected funds to the projects you choose. Earth Deeds retains a 15% fulfillment fee to enhance our capacity to combat climate change and help other organizations become carbon conscious.
Celebrate: We offer social media tools to promote your efforts and the project you are supporting. We also can provide a Carbon Conscious ecolabel you can use as you like.
