Your loved ones are possibly already doing all they can to avoid adding more carbon pollution to the climate problem, right? But even when we do all that we can, when we heat our home with renewable energy (a heat pump), drive an electric car, back off on air travel, eat less red meat, grow our own kale, etc. — there are still inevitable carbon costs built into our lives. Flying is the most obvious for us here in Alaska. If you must fly in an aircraft, there’s no way to do that carbon neutrally.
That’s when we turn to carbon offsets as they can be used to mitigate emissions that are unavoidable. When we offset our own contribution to the unfolding crisis, we’re taking responsibility for our actions and we become part of the solution. Now think of offsetting for others! Instead of buying stuff for friends and family, consider offsetting their carbon footprints. They may get more peace of mind from a friendlier future than from a singing bass door greeter or a fourth pair of slippers.

What offsets should you buy for your family or special someone?
Every $50 offset purchase with the Juneau Carbon Offset Fund is equivalent to:
Keeping a family’s home warm for 2 winter months!
Taking a 30mpg car off the road for 5 months!
2.5 round trip flights from Juneau to Seattle!
Subscriptions make great gifts!
Our impacts don’t come all at once so a monthly offset is more in line with the way that we live.
Choose from these options!
- An annual offset for driving a 30 mpg car 10,000 miles, or…
- An annual offset for flying roughly 15,000 miles, or…
