Our Local Carbon Offset Program

Benefitting local citizens and our global environment

We Are Neutral believes that carbon offsets can be used as vehicles for social and ecological change. That’s why we designed our unique Local Carbon Offset Program to take place in your backyard to give your carbon reductions a face, a home, a connection to you.

We build our carbon offsets with personal stories that become yours, too. When you purchase We Are Neutral’s carbon reductions, you are allowing a low-income family in your neighborhood to save money on their utility bills or helping a fragile forest bounce back to life. We pride ourselves in providing a variety of value-driven clients – from educational institutions, to music festivals, to mom n’ pop businesses – with these meaningful carbon reductions that profitably promote their values and build community at the same time.

Join the movement to help us guide entire communities towards a resilient carbon neutral future!
