"In a recent survey of 1,400 adults believing in climate change caused by humans, 75% agree that there is something they can personally do to help the planet, but yet only 40% have taken action," says Marisa de Belloy, CEO of Cool Effect, the crowdfunding site that helps people buy carbon credits simply and affordably. Americans produce an average of 17 tons of carbon per year, she says. The remarkable thing is how affordable it is to offset that production at CoolEffect.com. The site provides a clear price for a one-ton carbon credit for each project on the site. The lowest price per credit: $4.12. At that price, Americans can offset their entire year's carbon production for just $70.04. De Belloy hopes to get the nonprofit site's users to look past their own carbon offset requirements and to focus instead on supporting great projects, most of which provide a variety of social and environmental benefits aside from carbon offsets.
