Give a different kind of green this holiday season with the gift of carbon offsets

It’s that time of year when we venture out or online to find that special something for each of our loved ones and friends. We all know that the holidays can be expensive in terms of dollars, but many of us don’t realize how expensive they can be for the environment as well. Our increased travel and shopping can have a big impact on our emissions footprint for the year. Well, this year, Guttman Renewables is offering a new gift option to help ease that impact for yourself and those hard to buy for eco-conscious recipients on your list – Carbon Offsets!

If you’re not familiar, carbon offsetting is an effective way to reduce environmental impact for both companies and individuals. Offsets are generated from activities that avoid, reduce or remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and can be utilized to balance out or “offset” emissions from other sources and activities. Want to dig deeper? Read our previous blog posts here or here to learn more about carbon offsets.

We all generate emissions year-round, but the holidays can be an especially large contributor to our overall carbon footprint. Transportation is a big source of holiday emissions due to the increased travel for those holiday visits and the spike in shipping volume associated with our online shopping. Planning ahead can help when it comes to shopping as the traditional, no-rush shipping has much lower impact than rush shipping, which can necessitate more air travel, isn’t optimized (i.e., one item per box or delivery) and often results in more trips to a location with trucks that aren’t always full.

Another, easier way to lower your shopping-related emissions this year is to purchase carbon offsets. You’ll not only be balancing out emissions but you’ll save time and shipping-related emissions too! Buying offsets from Guttman Renewables is fast and easy by visiting our online portal. You can calculate emissions based on types of fuels used or skip our calculator and simply purchase a specific quantity.
