Why use offCents:
Unfortunately, few options exist to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gasses without completely upending the way we live. We cannot simply stop using all carbon-emitting transportation in our lives. However, the average U.S. passenger vehicle creates over 10,000 lbs of carbon dioxide per year! It would take more than 400 new trees to remove that one car’s emissions.
While we should take steps to reduce our carbon footprint, what we can’t eliminate, we can offset. offCents provides a relevant and fun way to do a small part in the effort to stop a warming Earth.
Proceeds from your offsets go toward purchasing carbon offsets, or Voluntary Emission Reductions (VERs). By purchasing offsets, you help fund a project that will reduce carbon emissions equal to the carbon you create from transportation. Each carbon offset (VER) funds carbon-reducing projects such as renewable power generation, methane capture and protection of forests.
offCents has been designed to limit GPS usage and to use a minimal amount of battery power.
