Together we can do more
Empowering online shoppers to make carbon neutral purchases is crucial to protecting the planet. But if we want to solve the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced, we need to do more.
EcoCart’s carbon offset projects are certified to reduce the environmental impact of our everyday activities, while doing some extra good like protecting animals and supporting underserved communities.
EcoCart exists to empower customers to make their ecommerce orders carbon neutral, but anyone can make a difference by supporting our carefully selected carbon offset projects.Our Projects
You release carbon. We put it back.
One person’s annual carbon emissions are equivalent to…

of coal burned
If that sounds like a lot — it is
Being human means releasing planet-warming emissions into the atmosphere. It happens when we take a shower, charge our phone, or let out a yawn after a long day.

We go above and beyond
The projects we fund are carefully vetted, ethically proven, and scientifically verified according to the world’s major carbon standards…
…with over 90% of each dollar going directly to projects that are proven to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.
What we look for
With a rigorous verification process, we scour the globe for projects that are legitimately reducing carbon pollution. We confirm the science and financials, making sure each project meets the toughest requirements of the world’s major carbon standards – including the United Nations.
By working closely with project developers, we ensure that each program is stable, sound, and capable of doing good for both people and the planet. EcoCart projects don’t just slow climate change, but also have a positive impact on local communities and animal habitats.
We can’t depend on the promise to do good. We need to see it in action. By carefully tracking the emissions reductions of each project and sharing that information with our customers, we give the EcoCart community greater certainty that what they see is what they get.
What on Earth is a carbon offset?
How does a carbon offset project work?
But not all carbon offset projects are created equal. EcoCart's projects offer carbon offset Laboratory and field testing with third-party verification and site visits ensure successful calculation of greenhouse gas reductions and enable a project to periodically issue credits. These credits are measured in metric tons (tonnes) of carbon dioxide equivalents (mtCO₂e). EcoCart then evaluates the implementation of the methodology and confirms that the project uses the majority of the proceeds from carbon for growth and not profit.
How do I know the money is going to the right place?
Every project we fund is triple-verified. Triple-verification means:
1. The project’s financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.
2. One of the world’s major carbon standards reviews the project.
3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.
Are carbon offsets the best way to slow climate change?
