Dear Earth Deeds Supporters,
Happy Earth Day! Today, may we renew our commitment to live in harmony with each other and our planet! Earth Deeds is proud to help users meaningfully account for their unavoidable impacts and support local solutions to global warming.
If you would like to pay forward your carbon footprint — say from the “Earth Month” of April, the year-to-date, or a recent vacation — and support some really cool projects, please check out C3’s Boulder Earth Week Team to measure your emissions and support an organization working for a more sustainable Boulder and a healthy planet!

Contact us if you would like to track your emissions over time.

Blog Spotlight: It is clear we need to move beyond “changing lightbulbs” and start changing the systems and policies that created global warming in the first place. To learn more, check out Clara Fang’s blog post on how higher education can be stronger advocates for climate action.
Enjoy the warmer weather everyone, but let’s keep it livable by supporting sustainability and resiliency projects in communities that matter to us!
