They laughed when I sat down to . . . neutralize my household annual CO2. But I showed them.
Thanks to www.carbonfund.org.
I was paying the local utility $7.50 a month to support their "green power" option, but it only funded the purchase of 250 kWh/mo of renewable power (out of our average monthly consumption of 461 kWh).
Now, for about $13 a month, we neutralize the electricity, PLUS the 806 CCF of natural gas we use annually, PLUS the 8000 miles we put on our 25 mpg car PLUS up to 2000 miles flown annually. So we gave $15 a month, and it's TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
Thank you for supporting Carbonfund.org!
