    Thanks to BECC my household is now carbon neutral! This month I purchased 2 tons of offsets from The Gold Standard’s Malawi Cookstoves project. I am pleased that my donation supports families in one of the world’s poorest countries while decreasing demand on forests for firewood. I commit to continuing to try to reduce my carbon footprint and to purchase at least 2 tons per month to start drawing down a lifetime of emissions.

    I love this calculator! This year my family of four produced 32 tons CO2eq–down from 46 tons in 2018! In 2020 we will fly less, we will install solar panels, and eat more vegetarian meals—this should reduce our emissions to 20 tons. So far this year, I have purchased 100 trees planted from https://onetreeplanted.org/ and 100 trees planted from #TeamTrees (at about 47 pounds per tree, this is 4.7 tons per year for 20 years); I also purchased 15.7 tons offset from https://www.cooleffect.org/ for a total of 20.4 tons offset. This is about $27/month. #GoCarbonNeutral2020 #BECC2019
