Terra Pass Website

TerraPass is a unique web-based project that focuses on the way everyday citizens can buy back their "carbon footprint" as a way to promote funding for renewable energy projects. The website calculates specific outputs of carbon pollution on a person-to-person basis, and prices how much this output would cost to fund a renewable project.

"When you buy a TerraPass, your money funds renewable energy projects such as wind farms. These projects result in verified reductions in greenhouse gas pollution. And these reductions counterbalance your own emissions."

Please visit their website FAQ section to see the goal of the group, as well as the blog to better understand their concept of using guilt of pollution as a way to fund environmentally sound projects.
