Carbon Down is a mobile climate action platform that helps you foster low-carbon habits, connects you with carbon offset projects to become carbon neutral, and enables you to grow your impact exponentially by leveraging your community.
Our mission is to democratize scalable and exponential climate impacts.
Many of us view the current climate crisis with frustration and a feeling of helplessness. This is an incredibly complex and global issue, with the world’s largest corporations and nations actively contributing to and downplaying the urgency of this issue. In the face of bureaucracy, governmental inaction, and dark money in politics, people who care about climate change have faced critical setback after critical setback. This is not due to a lack of numbers or will, but simply because politicians and corporations refuse to listen to science and the people in this country demanding climate action. We are the ones who will live here long after they have gone and at the very least need a livable planet. But we want more than that. We deserve more than that. We want a healthy home that can nurture us and our global society.
The unfortunate reality is that many people feel unable to build a future of excitement and hope in the face of these seemingly insurmountable obstacles. In short, we often feel helpless to make a difference.
But you don’t have to be a corporation or government to have a large, beneficial impact on climate change. All you have to do is to work together with your friends and your family by discussing the critical importance of taking climate action.
Here is how it works. First, you take an emission survey to estimate your carbon emissions. Second, we then connect you to pre-vetted carbon offset projects which remove your unavoidable emissions from the atmosphere. Third, when you convince a friend to take action, you can double your impact. We let you visualize the Butterfly effect that a single conversation can have on climate change by tracking the offsets purchased and the daily actions taken not only by your friends, but also your friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends, etc., so that you can see the exponential impact a single conversation can have on climate change.
Solving climate change isn’t just about what you can do, but what we can all do together.
The way we evaluate our impact on climate change is based solely off the impact of our individual actions alone. But this notion is wrong because it ignores one of the most powerful tools we have as people, our voice.
Our future is not predetermined, and the current pandemic has proven that we do not necessarily know what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, or next year. We founded Carbon Down to prove that our actions matter, and that what we do today influences the future of tomorrow.
The solution to climate change starts and ends with us.
We hope you sign up to join our platform as we begin our journey to create a sustainable society and preserve our beautiful home.
