The purchase price of our carbon removal gifts includes our cost to purchase the carbon removal, a small Shopify transaction fee, and a small retail mark-up to help us cover our operating costs and hopefully, someday, pay ourselves.
Why are some removal methods so much more expensive than others?

So why would anyone bother with these expensive solutions? The short answer is the value of permanence, which you can learn more about here.

Whom should I gift carbon removal to?
We recommend gifting carbon removal to the people you care most about, because what gift could be more impactful than carbon removal in this age of climate change! However, if you are looking for other ideas, we also recommend gifting carbon removal to your helpful colleagues, diligent direct reports and sassy boss. Perhaps you want to say thank you to your chill neighbors for watching your house while on vacation, and how about your kid’s valiant teacher? And do you want to celebrate occasions and holidays wtih your sustainably-minded sibling, your climate-denying uncle, and your climate-obsessed niece? You can literally gift anyone carbon removal. The climate crisis is here to stay and it affects everyone living on Planet Earth.
