A Lancaster-based nonprofit aims to give people and businesses a way to take responsibility for their greenhouse gas emissions, while helping their neighbors.
RegenAll is starting a Community Climate Fund as a way for people to pay for their carbon footprint. For a $75 contribution, RegenAll says it will reduce one ton of carbon.
Lowering emissions outside your direct control is known as an offset. Offset projects include planting a tree or replacing a gas furnace with an electric heat pump.
Eric Sauder, the company’s founder, said global offset programs often lack transparency. Keeping offsets local will hold the project accountable.
