HOW DO WE CHOOSE OUR CLIMATE PROJECTS?
Our Carbon Jacked memberships help fund some pretty epic climate projects. But… how the hell do we actually choose them? Well, it all starts with two things:
1. 💥High Impact – making sure the money donated will have the biggest impact. We use the principles of effective altruism (EA) to maximise the impact of every pound spent and make a real difference to climate change (explainer on EA at a later date...).
2. 🖤Evocative - to grab people’s attention and make them want to contribute. If a high-impact project sounds dull, we like to get involved and add a little spice because it’s all very well having the highest impact projects... but it's no use if nobody wants to contribute to them. We want people to care and feel good about what they’re doing.
If a project ticks these boxes, we’ll continue our research and make sure it’s properly verified. 👌
Some of our current projects include:
🌳Peak District National Park - Native tree planting on the Monsal Trail and restoring peatland
🌲Forest & wildlife protection - Ntakata Mountains, Tanzania
👥Community Project - Solar cookers for refugee families in Chad
🌊Tree planting & coastline regeneration - Madagascar
🌏Effective Altruism - Climate Change Fund
