Black Friday 2022
Carbon Removal

What's in our Carbon Removal Portfolio?

A hand-curated, ready-made and science-backed portfolio of high quality carbon removal solutions, that will evolve as new stuff becomes available. All projects are fully vetted with certificates published showing the amount of greenhouse gases removed. We account for every cent, and show you the receipts.

Actually removing carbon is more expensive than buying a low cost credit that says someone else avoided emitting greenhouse gases while you still did!

How do we choose carbon removal solutions?

The latest science says we'll need somewhere between 5 to 20 billion tonnes of carbon removal per year by 2050. It's a lot and we're nowhere close to it yet. To reach that level the truth is we're going to need a range of solutions to draw down emissions from the atmosphere to reduce the effects of climate change.

Carbon removal solutions all cost different amounts, ranging from about $20 per tonne up to about $1000 per tonne. We've blended them together for Portfolio-1 to give an average price of $150 per tonne to make it more accessible for everyone. We use the most permanent removal options as possible and also take into consideration other important aspects. 

Carbon Removal Portfolio Criteria #1


Each type locks away emissions for a different amount of time. We look for verified projects that have as long as possible permanence. It varies from about 100 to tens of thousands of years. 

Carbon Removal Portfolio Criteria #2


Does the project remove emissions from the atmosphere - and lock them away - more than would have been if nothing had happened? We look for the highest levels of extra carbon removal.

Carbon Removal Portfolio Criteria #3


We love projects that have more benefits in tackling climate change and ecological breakdown than just removing or reducing emissions. We look for projects that also regenerate nature. 

Carbon Removal Portfolio Criteria #4


The year that the carbon will be removed. Ideally the sooner the better. We'll say what the vintage is, as it will vary by the project type - from this year to a few years down the line.

I'm ready. How do I get started?

Great to hear! We're delighted you're with us. This Black Friday we've broken down typical emissions in a range of everyday purchases. Whether you're dipping your toe or draining your proverbial carbon ocean, there's a carbon removal option here for you.

Electronics + Tech

If you're in the market for some new tech this Black Friday check out how much carbon is hidden in different products - from phones to computers to TVs and other electronics.

Flights + Driving

If you're traveling or considering booking time away somewhere there's a carbon cost to doing so. Take a look at the baked-in carbon, whether that's short or long flights, driving or buying a new car.

Food + Clothes

Yep, you guessed it, a whole load of other things we buy and use all the time have planet heating emissions locked into them. Whether that's clothes, food or something else.

  • I thought it was very well presented and easy to follow, it has a friendly feel. I have heard about Climate change and the dangers we face but this is the first time I feel I have been given information to put what is happening into perspective

  • The Climate Crisis doesn't have to be a horror movie. It can become a story about hope, opportunity, personal choice, and collective effort. Nobody has to be perfect, but we all have to do something!

How much should I remove?

That depends. It's up to you. We've bundled some options so you can make your own decisions. Some people choose to buy carbon removal for specific purchases they've made, and others prefer to subscribe to remove their entire climate impact. 

Whichever you choose is right for you is good by us, it's all progress.

😳 Take a look how much a typical person emits per year in your country 😳

Frequently Asked Questions

We love questions! We want you to feel 100% comfortable and excited about joining our carbon removal portfolio. It's something we wished existed but couldn't find, so we made one!

What am I buying?

A portfolio of different carbon removal solutions, blended together to make it an affordable cost per tonne. Here's more info. When you join we'll send you an email detailing all the different things in there. If you're interested in going deeper join our free 3-day course all about it.   

How do I know the carbon has been removed?

We'll publish a ledger of all the CDR purchases the Portfolio fund makes and when they'll be verified as having removed the carbon. Every cent will be accounted for and we'll show you the evidence.

We'll also show you our research and how we made the decisions of what does (& doesn't) go into the Portfolio. Full transparency. 

How much goes to the removal projects?

As much as possible. As a minimum it'll be 85% of your contribution. Of the remaining 15%: 5% is payment processing fees, 5% is for third party fees (if applicable), and 5% is so we can keep making more stuff like this. 

It's all factored into the fund, so fees don't reduce the tonnes of carbon removal that's actually happening. 

We'll keep this under review and if it's possible to increase the amount going to CDR projects we will.

Not ready to join? That's ok. Continue your climate adventure on our free 3-day carbon removal course!
