The Deal with Carbon Offsets

6 August 2012

Ever wonder what carbon offsets are and how they are helpful? This infographic from Good has a great and simple explanation of them. If you are interested in buying some carbon offsets, you are in luck! It is easy to  purchase wind power from Xcel Energy for a minimum of a couple dollars a month. Harness the Power of Wind.

Part of the infographic that is compelling to me is how much CO2 is emitted by us every year. “The average US resident produces 21 tons a year”. I know I will be choosing another energy saving action to do to continue to lower my annual average carbon emissions!
