We at b.a.r.e. soaps treat every dollar from your purchase as if we were a non-profit using funder money. In other words, our goal is to generate the highest impact for every dollar that we make. This mentality is no different when it comes to carbon offsetting.
What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsetting can be described most simply as supporting a project that reduces or sequesters CO2 in order to balance out one's own carbon footprint. These projects typically support wind/solar power, methane capture, biomass, and reforestation. Since many projects that reduce greenhouse gases require large up-front expenditures, financing is often a significant constraint. Funds from offset sales can put clean projects in the pipeline more quickly.
