Zerofootprint is a nonprofit that aims to reduce the footprint left behind by individuals and small companies. They first encourage people and companies to be aware of how much carbon they are emitting into the atmosphere through consumption (cars, heating, food, etc.) through an emissions calculator. Then help people find ways to lower those emissions. One such way is to allow individuals and entities to purchase carbon offsets directly. They work directly with sellers, usually tree growers, to make this happen and to make sure they are legally bound to leave the trees in perpetuity. The nonprofit gets a cut of the offset price to maintain operations, but one view of the website and its commitment to integrity and success justifies this fee. It is a smart idea whose time has more than come.
