Carbon Offset Programs in the US

We have just added an additional three US based carbon credit projects to our Environmental Booty Carbon Offset portfolio.

Green Lights New Orleans

Location:New Orleans, USA Type:Community Project

The goal of the Green Lights New Orleans project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the city by replacing 3 million light bulbs with more efficient, low energy light bulbs, thus avoiding 18,000 million tonnes of emissions over the lifetime of the program – this roughly equates to taking 120,000 cars off the road for a whole year. Low energy bulbs use 75% less energy than regular light bulbs. By replacing all the bulbs in a house (around 30 bulbs on average) over $650 can be saved over the lifetime of the new bulbs for some of the city’s most impoverished inhabitants.

Greenville County Methane Capture

Location:South Carolina, USA Type:Methane Capture

This project is a landfill gas collection and utilization project located at the Enoree landfill in Greer, South Carolina, USA. It will initially flare the landfill gas, but it will ultimately use the gas to generate renewable electricity. The objective of the project is to install an active gas collection and utilization system that will convert the methane content of the landfill gases, thereby reducing its global warming impact.

Intrepid Dairy Farm Methane Capture

Location:Southern Idaho, USA Type:Methane Capture

The Whitesides and Westpoint dairy farms, located in southern Idaho, USA, are changing their method of processing manure to a system using anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion technology will help reduce the release of methane into the atmosphere and aid in mitigating climate change. The new biogas digesters installed at both dairies will now capture and destroy methane gas produced from the waste of over 12,000 dairy cows. For more details click here.

These are great programs for businesses, individuals or families! Figure your carbon footprint...get started today.


  1. Such great Amazing things a govt should do!

  2. The Methane collection in Greenville seems promising. There are lots of similar programs running successfully in Brazil, dont know why the US doesnt have more.

    Very valuable post, thanks.
