Voluntary Carbon Offset – Individual Offset of five (5) tonnes of Carbon emissions is the equivalent to using
- 11,300 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle,
- 2 1/2 trips from New York to Los Angeles,
- 535 gallons of gasoline consumed, or
- 1.7 tons of waste sent to the landfill.
It is the amount of carbon saved with every 125 new trees planted or 1611 sq ft of forest saved from deforestation (roughly the footprint of an average bungalow suburban home)
