Help Us Perform 12 Carbon Reduction Projects

As we inch closer to the official start of spring, the We Are Neutral team is hoping to leave behind the cold weather to make way for widespread climate education and carbon footprint awareness. From celebrating B Corps to highlighting the importance of a sense of scale and welcoming new carbon champions, we're wrapping up winter by empowering communities to understand, reduce, and offset their environmental impacts. 

Own Your Impact

Humans breathe out carbon emissions. That's no surprise, but it means our carbon footprints will always exist. Instead of chasing a zero carbon footprint, we encourage people to own their environmental impact. Understanding your carbon footprint and taking action to mitigate any climate impacts is empowering. Education is essential, so we're here to help you better identify what it looks like for you or your business to join the carbon neutral movement. Interested? Let's chat here

Celebrate B Corps

B Corp Month is here! March is a celebration for over 3,700 companies around the world doing business differently by meeting the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. Interested in joining the movement and making your business a B Corp? We'd love to help your team understand your business's carbon footprint. Our friends at Florida for Good are also happy to walk you through the entire impact assessment. 

Thank You!

We couldn't do what we do best without your support. As always, feel free to reach out if you're interested in learning more about how you can better understand, reduce, and offset your carbon footprint. Thank you for being a Carbon Champion.

Even though 2020 is coming to an end, our team isn’t slowing down to bring balance back to our planet! Working through the new normal has required communities to look out for one another and in result has made our community even stronger.

With that, We Are Neutral believes that we cannot fight the battle against climate change alone. That’s why we are grateful for your support. So, we'd like to share an update on some of our most meaningful, Earth-giving projects as well as our plans looking ahead to the future.

Carbon Reduction Projects 

We have recently opened our carbon reduction projects to our wonderful volunteers again! Our carbon reduction projects empower members of our community to decrease carbon emissions after months of staying at home. Participating in our socially distant carbon reduction projects require no previous experience, but all volunteers leave with a better understanding of their local environment, while still remaining socially distant. 

Our American-made carbon offset and reduction projects include providing energy upgrades for low-income families, indigenous tree planting, invasive species removal, urban agriculture, landfill diversion, landfill methane capture, vehicle fuel efficiency tuneups, and massive amounts of environmental education.

Bringing Climate Change Awareness To Local Communities

Thanks to your support, we have spared over 48,000 tons of carbon emissions from our precious atmosphere, and inspired countless businesses and individuals to take responsibility for their environmental impacts. Offsetting 50,000 tons of carbon emissions is our goal as that’s equal to 10,802 cars taken off the road for one year, 1,899,480 light bulbs switched to energy efficient LEDs, and 826,761 trees planted and grown for 10 years. Every dollar donated to our cause directly supports our carbon footprint, carbon offset, and environmental education programs, and helps us reach our goal.

These last few months have been unpredictable to say the least! It has become very clear that a healthy humanity and healthy planet go hand in and hand. We Are Neutral stands strong in our role to facilitate positive change, but it’s going to take all of us.

As we all continue to work through the new normal, it's inspiring to see communities rally to support each other through so many challenges. Our team is still fighting the good fight against climate change and wants to share ways you can take action.

Using Business as a Force for Good

Over the last few months we have been supporting businesses as they climb to the next level not only by becoming carbon neutral, but by becoming Certified B Corporations! B Corps are a group of businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance and public transparency. 

If you're working through the B Impact Assessment, partnering with We Are Neutral can be an effective way to gain some of those needed environmental points. Curious to learn more about the process? Reach out to us here.

Take Action Into Your Own Hands

When it comes to climate change, we’re often approached by people viewing the issue as too big and too scary. We Are Neutral values giving people the opportunity to take action. In August, we’ll be participating in our annual Amazing Give online fundraiser.

During these unprecedented times, some of our biggest supporters are experiencing financial hardships through The Amazing Give Relief online fundraiser, we’ve already raised some of the needed funds to help us continue our carbon reduction efforts but, if you’re able, please think about donating to support our hard, and very necessary, environmental work here.

We’re Here For You, Fellow Earth-Warrior! 

Honestly, we couldn't do what we do best without your support. If you are looking for more ways to donate, our GlobalGiving project is here or you can donate directly through our website here

As always, feel free to reach out if you're interested in learning more about how you can better understand, reduce, and offset your carbon footprint.

It's a new year and we're full speed ahead here at We Are Neutral. We've spent every week these last few months increasing our carbon reduction projects and teaching our community how they can understand, reduce, and offset their carbon footprint. Discover everything we've had going on plus get a preview of what's to come as we create a bigger and better environmental impact in 2020.

Carbon Reduction Projects

The beginning of this year has been filled with tree plantings and invasive species pulls thanks to the help of our wonderful volunteers! Our carbon reduction projects empower members of our community to decrease carbon emissions by getting their hands dirty. Participating in our carbon reduction projects require no previous experience, but all volunteers leave with a better understanding of the carbon cycle and their local surroundings.

Neutral Neighbors

We Are Neutral offsets the carbon footprint of local businesses, events, and residents who strive to build a healthier, happier planet. Offsetting the carbon footprint of your home makes you one of our Neutral Neighbors. Your dollar bills go towards meaningful carbon reduction projects right here in Gainesville while you get exclusive deals from our carbon neutral business partners. Whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, we’d love to help you better understand your utility consumption and residential carbon footprint.

As 2019 comes to an end, we love to reflect on the achievements and actions We Are Neutral has carried out to help build a better, more sustainable world. Through our carbon footprint, carbon reduction, and carbon offset work, we have helped over 100 businesses and residents understand and offset their environmental impact. With your help, we have expanded our environmental education and community outreach programs. We are so excited to share some activities from our year and to jump into a new decade full of more carbon reduction projects! 

Environmental Education   

Thanks in part to We Are Neutral’s participation in the Lucky’s Market Gainesville Bags for Change program, we were able to visit over 5 schools ranging from elementary to university level classes. We educated students on the carbon cycle, carbon offsets, and how they can get involved in their community and everyday lives to help the environment.  

Community Outreach

In 2019, We Are Neutral was involved in over 35 events all across Florida with organizations and businesses to connect with people on sustainable solutions. We have continued to grow our own events as well having hosted a city-wide Earth Day Celebration at Depot Park to not only celebrate our planet but to teach others how they can take action to reduce their environmental impact. Our team is thrilled to be involved in such a variety of community events to raise awareness of our mission and further expand our environmental education initiatives.

We couldn't do what we do best without your support. As always, feel free to reach out if you're interested in learning more about your environmental impact or how you can better understand, reduce, and offset your carbon footprint. We’re here for you, fellow Earth-Warrior!
