New Service Lets You Earn Rewards Points For Offsetting Your Emissions
FastCompany.com says that even if you who live a relatively environmentally friendly life, with sustainable diets and low-impact travel habits, you probably could do more to counterbalance the emissions that stem from unavoidable necessities of modern life.
That’s the underlying philosophy for the creators of newly launched startup, Treepoints. “The only way to get to [carbon] zero and beyond is to couple behavior changes with active offsetting,” says Anthony Collias, one of the two co-founders. Treepoints gives users rewards points for offsetting their carbon by investing in projects that cancel out environmentally unfriendly lifestyle practices, like car and plane travel, and dairy- and meat-heavy diets. The structure of the rewards scheme is like “air miles, but for helping the planet rather than hurting it,” Collias says.
