We all want to make a difference in the face of the climate crisis.
But unfortunately the vast majority of us only view ourselves as only a contributor to the problem. Even if we are vegan, we still drive cars. Even if we drive a Prius, some of us still fly in polluting planes to visit family. Even if we try as hard as we can, we still emit carbon into our atmosphere, contributing to the climate change.
There are companies out there that allow users to track and offset their carbon emissions, but many of these platforms only allow us to not actively contribute to climate change, and do not empower us, the users, to become part of the solution to it. These platforms limit our impact to the amount of money we pay.
However, Carbon Down empowers you to have an impact on climate change that is only limited by the passion you have for solving the most pressing crisis of our time.
Many of these companies also require that you remain consistently engaged with the app to derive any value from it. You have to constantly enter specific data points about how long you drive, what food you eat, etc, which can be overwhelming and cumbersome. But the fact of the matter is, by simply identifying a few key metrics, such as the type of car you drive, the type of house you live in, your overall dietary habits, it is enough information to accurately measure the amount of emissions you have, and the amount of carbon offsets needed to remove those emissions from the atmosphere.
Also, what many of these companies and platforms fail to highlight is that our ability to create a positive impact on climate change is so much larger than just our individual actions alone.
Now this is a critical point, because the way we currently evaluate our personal climate impact is based solely off the impact of our individual actions. However, this notion fails to recognize that one of our most powerful tools we have as individuals is actually our voice and how it influences those around us. This is what makes us different from the other platforms that exist.
You can track the carbon emissions offset by not only your friends, but also your friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends, etc., so that you see how your conversations with others about the importance of climate action, actually leads to exponential scale impacts on climate change.
For the offset projects that we do provide our customers, we focus heavily on providing as much transparency as possible. We ensure that you have access to enough carbon offset project information and media, whether that be reforestation projects in the Peruvian Amazon, efficient wood burning stoves in Malawi, or renewable energy development in Indonesia, to make sure you know your money is having the impact needed to effectively address the climate crisis.
But what truly sets us apart from the other platforms is that we provide hope. Hope that we are not alone in this challenge. Hope that we can build a sustainable future for our society and our planet. Hope that we will never give up on our home.
We founded Carbon Down to reverse climate change and to create a future we all want for ourselves and our planet. We hope you join us.
