TerraPass is a non-profit organization that funds clean energy projects like wind farms and methane capture facilities. This is how it works:
1) You calculate the yearly CO2 emissions of your car
2) You buy a TerraPass
3) TerraPass uses that money to fund various clean energy projects
4) An equilibrium is reached where your contribution reduces just as much CO2 emission as your car produces (third-party certified)
Prices range from $30/year to $80/year depending on the make and model of your car and how much you drive it. My 2002 Saturn L200, at about 20k miles a year, puts me at the $80 level. Included in the membership is a bunch of decals and stickers to let everyone know how environmentally cool you are.
