Charity Spotlight: Carbonfund.org
Carbonfund.org Foundation, a carbon offset provider, offers a unique take on saving the world. Started by a husband-and-wife pair who wanted to make it easy for individuals, businesses and organizations to mitigate their impacts on the environment, Carbonfund.org takes an anything-but-standard approach.
So what exactly do they do?
They offer carbon offsets. Basically, carbon offsets are the reduction of carbon emissions in one place - say reforestation or renewable energy projects - that counteract the CO2 that’s produced in another location, like your home or office. Carbonfund.org's programs and carbon offset projects make that happen.
For you, this means you can simply go online to Carbonfund.org and calculate your carbon footprint or select a preset option that represents your living situation and begin donating to projects that will offset the amount of carbon you produce. It couldn’t be easier!
And, like all our charities, because they have been ranked 4/4 stars by Charity Navigator and received the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, you know you can trust that your money is going exactly where you intend it to when you choose blue Marc Skid undies to save the world. Plus they work with the best certification bodies to ensure they are providing the highest quality offsets to you and me.
Linda Kelly from Carbonfung.org says she believes in the work she does because, “We only have one Earth, and it’s critically important that we each do our part to preserve and protect the natural resources and wonders that sustain life.”
Like me, the creator of Marc Skid, she learned about giving back from her family. “Giving back to your community has always been an integral part of my life, modeled by my grandparents and my parents, and placing my focus on the environment just increases my level of commitment.”
We hope you’ll feel the same way about our partnership as Carbonfund.org’s president and co-founder, “who absolutely loved the idea”.
If you’re ready to make a difference for the planet, go forth and make your Marc!
