Terrapass: Our Carbon Offset Subscription Options
And you thought birthdays and anniversaries were impossible to remember. All these online passwords are killing us! Seems there’s just too much stress on the memory banks these days.
But at terrapass, we’re making it easy to remember to support clean energy and environmental initiatives with our carbon offset subscriptions. With a “set it and forget it approach,” we offer a variety of plans that allow you to balance out your carbon footprint (click here to measure your carbon footprint) without a second thought. Check out the various terrapass plans, below, and discover which one is perfect for you.
- Personal Carbon Offsets: From brushing your teeth and showering to watching your favorite TV shows and working on your computer, you can offset all the environmental damage your daily activities create with our simple subscription plan. In the U.S., the average monthly carbon emissions per person are between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds. For just $4.99/month, you can offset 1,000 pounds of CO2 and for only $15 – $20/month you can completely negate your carbon footprint. That averages to about $.50/day. Only a fraction of the cost of your daily latte!
- Renewable Energy Credits: The average home in the United States consumes about 11 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity each year (or 1MWh per month). Your monthly Renewable Energy Credit (REC) subscription will displace 1 MWh each month and an annual REC subscription plan will take care of your emissions for the year, and then some.
- Balanced Living Bundle: Do you own a car? Use water? Consume energy? The terrapass Balanced Living Bundle accounts for your activities and calculates a personalized annual subscription offer, just for you. Starting at $61.66/year, this custom plan bills once a year and can renew annually for your convenience.
- Business Carbon Offset: Show your corporate commitment to creating a cleaner planet with a carbon offset subscription plan for your business or organization. Starting at $11/month, your business is on the way to becoming a corporate sustainability partner.
Any and all your carbon offset subscription purchases support projects that remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and increase renewable energy. These projects include landfill gas capture (turning garbage and harmful methane into powerful, renewable energy), farm power (turning animal waste into electricity), clean energy wind farms and abandoned coal mine methane capture (turning harmful methane gas from coal mines into clean, renewable energy).
In addition to mitigating your impact on the environment, these subscription options also make smart gifts for your friends, family members and colleagues who have an interest in living on a cleaner, greener planet.
