For our wedding, we are supporting the nonprofit Cool Effect. Cool Effect has many programs to help reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and lessen global warming (Read more here: https://www.yaleclimateconnections.org/2016/10/whats-so-cool-about-cool-effect-carbon-reductions/). Please consider donating to offset the carbon dioxide you or someone else contributed to the Earth this year.
What should you contribute to offset your Carbon output?
Cool Effect's projects offset 1 ton of carbon with between $5 and $13. So, assuming a price of $9 per ton of carbon, Cool Effect says the following people contribute the following amounts of CO2 to the atmosphere per year (https://www.cooleffect.org/content/why-carbon):
the Average American contributes 16.6 tons =$149.00
the Daily Commuter contributes 21.6 tons = $194.40
the Frequent Flyer contributes 50.1 tons = $450.90
Happy Carbon Offsetting!
