FitPlanet/NativeEnergy Green Tags - $3 each
Every mile you drive produces about 1 pound of carbon dioxide. Every FitPlanet/NativeEnergy Green Tag you buy offsets 300 pounds of CO2. So that's $3 for about 300 miles of driving, depending on your car's mileage. Do your part to reduce the impact of global warming and buy FitPlanet/NativeEnergy Green Tags. The planet will thank you!
Click Here to purchase carbon offsets.
Each FitPlanet Green Tag you buy will offset an estimated 300 Lbs. of CO2 through NativeEnergy, based on the expected lifetime carbon offset output of a new Renewable Energy, GHG Reduction, or Energy Efficiency Project the Green Tag helped build, or the current year output of a project the sticker supports. All sticker carbon offsets are donated to Clean Air-Cool Planet for retirement. Learn more at http://www.nativeenergy.com/.
