MOM’s Organic Market is a small East Coast grocery store chain whose mission is to provide the opportunity for people to help the environment and to improve their live by using healthy, high quality and environmentally friendly products. MOM’s partnered with TerraPass to launch an innovative in-store program called “TerraPass Your Gas.” The program aims to reduce emissions associated with grocery shopping by offsetting every customer trip to the store.

Last year, MOM’s offset 9,656.86 metric tons of carbon dioxide through TerraPass Your Gas. That’s the equivalent of eliminating greenhouse emissions from 2,012 passenger vehicles! Mom’s is a fast growing grocery chain with a loyal customer base. Their carbon offset program is core to their mission, and helps build a safe and healthy community.

Disney
Project Goal
Place an internal price on carbon to encourage environmental innovation.

Highlights
One of Disney’s major drivers of their carbon footprint is their cruise lines. The additional cost of carbon has accelerated research for solutions in for the cruise business, and the research and development Imagineers have been tasked with identifying cleaner fuel options.
