Carbon Offsets

Trees, Water & People's carbon offsets not only offer an opportunity to reduce your environmental impact, but also decrease deforestation rates, improve the health of families, and support our efforts to protect and conserve natural resources.

step one

step two

Offset

Choose which of our projects you would like to support to offset your carbon:

cookstove

Clean Cookstoves

Each of TWP's clean Justa cookstoves saves 1.65 tons of carbon emissions per year. Over the stove's minimum projected lifespan of five years, that equates to 8.25 tons of carbon.

Offset with Cookstoves:  
tree

Trees

On average, one tree planted by TWP can sequester one ton of carbon over its lifetime. To account for natural mortality rates, we plant five trees per one ton offset. Trees are planted around homes and in protected areas as part of a community-led reforestation program.

Offset with Trees:  
solar air heater

Solar Air Heaters

Every year, our solar air heaters prevent 1.39 tons of carbon emissions generated by fossil fuels. When you contribute to this form of renewable energy, you help not only our environment, but also struggling families by providing clean heat from the sun.
