Reduce your wedding's carbon footprint with carbon offset

Carbonfund.org is the nation’s leading nonprofit provider of carbon offsets and climate solutions. They make it easy and affordable for everyone to calculate, reduce and offset their carbon footprint with carbon offsets that are verified to third-party carbon offsets standards, and be carbon neutral. Everyone can help fight global warming with carbon offsets, including environmentally-aware couples planning a wedding.

About the US carbon footprint

A whopping 50,000 pounds a year! That’s the average American's total carbon footprint which includes the emissions from your home, car, air travel and everything you use. We are all responsible for climate change and we all must be part of the solution.

You can be a leader in the fight against climate change: make a tax-deductible donation to offset your carbon footprint and support the Carbon Fund’s industry-leading carbon reduction projects. Thank you!

Why offset now?

Global warming is already causing crop failures, severe heat waves and flooding from extreme weather in numerous countries, including the US. But we all can take action to stop global warming. When you offset, you balance out the carbon emissions you can’t reduce by supporting innovative projects around the world that are reducing emissions. Help fight global warming. Offset now.

Offset the impact of your special day with the Carbon Fund’s ZeroCarbon™ Weddings calculator

As you prepare for the beginning of a new life together, it is important to share this special time with friends and family. Your wedding is a celebration of the future, and now you can make it a celebration for our planet's future as well! 

Travel, whether by air or car, emits large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, and for most weddings is the biggest contributor to your wedding's carbon footprint. Use the carbon calculator on the Carbon Fund website to determine the level of carbon dioxide your wedding events will emit into the air and give your guests the opportunity to contribute to your ZeroCarbon Wedding!

Not sure on the exact figures of your wedding?

Try one of the preset wedding offset options, costing 80 US dollars for 8 tons, 150$ for 15-tons, ideal if you have more than 100 guests and many of them are flying, or 500$ for 50-tons which can be used for larger weddings of over 200 guests, many of whom are flying, or destination weddings, which involve a lot of travel. Why not encourage out-of-town wedding guests to donate to the Carbon Fund to offset their travel?

What donors are saying

“We love the idea of offsetting our wedding’s carbon footprint. Plus, this is a great way to educate everyone at our wedding about the need to reduce their carbon emissions.”

“I care about the generations to come, and those who are already feeling the effects of climate change, especially those starving in Africa and those who will experience water stress from floods in Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, few people realize the urgency. Being one of those, I feel it’s my duty to give generously.”

“I donated because Carbonfund.org’s work has been recognized in the media, and I think global warming is the most serious issue facing us in the 21st century.”
