This package is perfect for anybody who would like to take carbon offsets a step further and offset their entire daily routine!
- Home energy consumption, transportation activities and waste generated from your daily life are the most common carbon hot-spots for individuals. The average annual carbon emissions of an individual are 12 metric tons of CO2 equivalent (USEPA). In other words, you generate 1 mt CO2e every month!
- Cost to offset emissions per round trip (assuming $12.00 per ton of CO2) = $12.00
In addition to the cost of each carbon offset, TerraMar includes a percentage donation to help develop our free ocean education programs.
