Carbon Fund is a nonprofit that offers carbon offset options for individuals, businesses, and organizations who want to reduce their carbon footprint. When you buy carbon offsets, you sponsor one of the nonprofit’s projects to counteract global warming. These projects range from a providing hydroelectric power to a community in India to reforestation in Louisiana, as well as awareness campaigns.
