Why You Should Offset Your Carbon

The idea of buying carbon offsets to help reduce one's environmental impact is not new, but recent research claims that flying can have a much greater effect than previously thought. Air travel accounts for 25% or more global warming gases released into our atmosphere every year- even worse than car emissions. If you have to fly, offsets can help partially reduce that impact and you will be making a difference in helping our neighbors in the four corners area reduce their energy burden and having a direct impact on them.

How 4CORE Offsets Carbon through Their Donations

Your donation will offset your carbon footprint and provide grants to fund local families for efficiency upgrades, reducing their climate impact, which would not otherwise be possible for lower-income households. These projects will help reduce energy use, conserve resources and help the environment by reducing the release of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. By reducing energy consumption, we can all benefit from a healthier planet.
