Care for Creation and Your Congregation
The Blessed Tomorrow Carbon Offset Program, powered by Cool Effect, provides a simple and powerful way for houses of worship to offset annual carbon emissions. This will zero out your carbon impact for the year and help families cook with clean and healthy stoves at the same time.
Step 1: Find your electricity and gas bills for the past 12 months. Enter the total usage information for electricity (in kilowatt hours) and natural gas (in therms) from the past 12 months of bills and enter it below.
Step 2: Calculate the total square footage of your house of worship and enter it below. This will calculate your annual carbon emissions and cost for offset.
Step 3: Click “offset now” to complete the transaction. Cool Effect will send you a confirmation of your purchase and a personalized certificate of your offset.
