How do you determine how much carbon to offset?


Planet Protection currently offsets the CO2 emissions from driving your vehicle. To determine the amount of CO2 to offset, we track your purchases at gas stations and then use the national average price for gas to estimate how many gallons you purchased. From there, we use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data to calculate the amount of CO2 emitted from each gallon of gas, and then purchase carbon offsets to counteract your emissions.
