TerraPass Your Gas
1 Each year, the average car emits about 10,000 lbs of carbon dioxide, a leading cause of global warming.
2 We collect your zip code to calculate carbon dioxide emitted from a round trip to MOM's and purchase carbon credits to offset the trip through TerraPass.
3 TerraPass uses the money to fund carbon dioxide reducing projects.
4 Result: Less CO2 released into the air!
MOMís Organic Market purchases carbon credits from TerraPass in direct proportion to the emissions released from its customersí shopping trips. From November 2011 through December 2012, MOM's offset 9,656 metric tons of carbon dioxide. This is equivalent to eliminating the annual greenhouse emissions from 2,012 passenger vehicles or the CO2 emissions from consuming 1,082,603 gallons of gasoline. MOMís uses zip code data from its customers to estimate mileage driven to and from MOM's stores.
TerraPass uses funds received from MOMís to sponsor four types of leadingĖedge clean energy and efficiency projects such as wind power, dairy farm methane digesters, landfill gas capture and coal mine capture. An independent third party environmental auditor verifies each TerraPass offset purchase against industry leading standards.
