Did you know that 21 pounds of milk is used to make just one pound of butter, producing 26 pounds of CO2e during the process?
And that cheesemaking emits about 22 pounds of CO2e per pound of cheese?
It is no wonder both of these staple foods can be found on the NRDC’s list of climate-damaging foods, with butter being ranked third.
The ideal solution for reducing your carbon footprint would be to switch to plant-based foods. However, we understand that it's not always easy to eliminate cheese, butter, and other dairy products from your diet.
With this offset, you will reduce 350 pounds of CO2e and lower the carbon impact of your dairy intake for a month’s worth of dairy products without making lifestyle changes you’re not comfortable with.
This offset supports projects that have been vetted by the American Carbon Registry, Verified Carbon Standard, and the Climate Action Reserve.
