Carbon Race Teams

We’re racing against the clock when it comes to preventing extreme climate disruption.

Don’t you agree it will be much more fun to race together? We created the Carbon Races as a fun, team-based way to take CO2 out of our atmosphere by pooling our efforts at taking responsibility for our personal and workrelated emissions. Of course, we want everyone to do their best to keep shrinking their fossil fuel consumption, but for those currently unavoidable emissions, you can join with others to make a difference! Working together, you’ll be able to take pride that your offsets helped fund home heating improvements for local, lower-income households.

Businesses, neighborhoods, churches, organizations - any group of people can form a team and combine their efforts to see who can offset the most every month. At the end of each month, we will celebrate the top teams for pounds of CO2 offset, number of offsets, or number of players on the team. Teams can also vie for top spots for the entire year!

Plus everyone who makes an offset can spin the prize wheel for a chance to win one of dozens of great prizes from local businesses. We think climate protection deserves a reward!

Or Run Solo

If you don't want to join or create a team for the Carbon Races, we invite you to compete solo against other individuals. Just make a carbon offset and then register as an Individual and every offset you make will accrue to your account on our Leaderboard and give you another opportunity to win a prize from one of our supporting local businesses
