Travel Offsets Are Taking Off!

July 14, 2020
  • 11% of carbon pollution comes from air travel
  • 3 large-scale new projects started this quarter because of you
  • 2 long-term project goals met with help from your donation
  • 1 tonnes of carbon pollution from your roundtrip flight neutralized

Twelve years. That’s the amount of time global experts say we have to start to reverse, or draw down, the carbon crisis that’s warming our planet. But you’ve already started doing your part: by purchasing travel offsets through Cool Effect when you flew, you’ve helped implement new, earth-cooling projects that completely neutralized the warming effects of your plane trip. With your offsets this quarter, we were able to protect 1.4 million acres of forests and wetlands in Pennsylvania, Kenya, and Indonesia that would otherwise have been deforested through logging and other commercial enterprises. Since these forests and wetlands sequester the carbon produced in part by air travel, it’s a win-win for you and for the planet!

Every little bit matters. Thank you for doing your part.

Thank you!
