TerraPass is a resource for those looking to meet the challenge of global warming by taking responsibility for their own carbon emissions. With TerraPass, you can calculate your carbon footprint and find ways to reduce it with energy-saving products and ideas. Through TerraPass, you can also balance your emissions by funding clean energy and carbon reduction projects that help to fight global warming.TerraPass also offers green products that help you save energy. Saving energy is a great way to save money and help the environment at the same time. Many of these product pay for themselves quickly in lower energy bills.

TerraPass has calculators for all of the major activities responsible for carbon emissions: driving, flying, and home energy use. We also offer products to balance emissions from college dorm energy use, wedding or events, and business energy use.

The wedding emissions calculator combines estimation techniques from the driving and flight calculators, as well as some additional data regarding the typical energy use in hotels and conference halls, to come up with a total estimate for carbon dioxide emissions from your event.
In addition to a verified reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, your Wedding TerraPass comes with a certificate of offset in an attractive frame made of beautiful recycled wood. The certificate lets your guests know that your event is carbon balanced. And when your wedding is over, you can use the frame to display pictures of the happy day. Read less

We ordered "Climate Change Chocolate" for favors for our wedding. It's chocolate that comes bundled with a day's worth of carbon offsets. It was a huge hit with our guests (although the dark chocolate seemed more popular than the milk) and a great way for us to educate our guests about something that was important to us. They shipped the chocolate right after we ordered it, and it arrived in plenty of time for the wedding. We also used TerraPass's calculator to offset the total carbon emissions for our wedding. It was really easy to do, and it was good to know that we could have a carbon neutral wedding.

My husband and I wanted our wedding to reflect our environmental values. We found lots of ways to reduce the global warming impact of the wedding weekend, but because our families are from opposite coasts, one thing we couldn't avoid were the carbon emissions from our guests' travel. I used the TerraPass wedding calculator to determine the carbon footprint of our guests flights, drives, and hotel night stays. The total impact for a 115 person wedding with over half the guests flying across the country was 190,000 lbs, which is roughly equivalent to the average annual emissions from 16 cars. Guest travel had the biggest carbon impact of any other part of the wedding weekend, so we added the cost to balance out those emissions as a non-negotiable line item in our budget. This meant we skipped party favors for our guests, but we got great feedback that they preferred their offset to anything else.

[Note: I would have purchased a wedding TerraPass regardless, but in the spirit of full disclosure, I am an employee of TerraPass.]
