Learning how to adventure sustainably will help you to reduce and offset your carbon footprint and explore without making a negative impact on the natural world.
We can all do something about climate change, which is why we founded Carbon Jacked – we’re all about helping you adventure sustainably.
Individuals need to take action, but demanding that they stop everything and live like a monk on a low-fun diet won’t work because it will alienate more people than it converts.
At Carbon Jacked, we think people must understand their environmental impact and take action to reduce it so that they can continue adventuring, rather than stop.
Jack Curtis and Jacques Sheehan are the Co-Founders of environmental start-up Carbon Jacked introduce and make the argument for carbon offsetting.
To read about climate change at the moment is to be bombarded by a mixture of virtue signalling and semi-incomprehensible terms that sound like the name of your middle-aged science teacher’s woeful rock band: ‘carbon neutral’, ‘carbon negative’ and ‘climate positive’.

On one side it’s the devil, a guilt-absolving way to do nothing and keep living your life at the expense of the planet. On the other, it’s a magical solution to save the planet without lifting a finger. So which side is right?
The truth is...
