Carbon Down is a mobile climate action platform empowering users to have a scalable impact on climate change. We have a simple philosophy: Reduce your avoidable emissions, Remove your unavoidable emissions, and Refer others. We offer our users easily, daily, actionable tasks that can reduce their carbon footprint and then connect them to pre-vetted offset projects to remove their unavoidable emissions from the atmosphere. Finally, we allow users to track their carbon offset influence on their friends and their family. This is crucial, because our climate impact can be so much larger than just the impact of our individual actions alone.
