Be Green and Buy Carbon Offsets

The concept of carbon offsets is a relatively simple one.  Basically, to reduce carbon emissions in the environment you can sponsor the planting of trees in the world to help enhance oxygen production and other benefits.  There is quite a bit of confusion and, yes, some controversy around the issue which is why it deserves a closer look.

Since the purchase of carbon credits cannot exist without some selling them, there will be instances where less than honest sellers enter the fray and do not exactly promote carbon credits in an ethical manner.  Sadly, such an element will always exist in any sales venture.  The key is to look for those sellers that have a stellar reputation and will not undermine your ability to get the most out of the venture and offset the footprint of carbon dioxide emissions.
