Shouldn’t we consume less to lower our carbon footprint?
Of course! We don’t want you to buy things you wouldn’t otherwise buy! However, if you choose to purchase items through Shop2SavethePlanet, you can relax knowing that you are one step closer to reducing your carbon footprint.
What are carbon credits?
It’s widely accepted that we are emitting too much greenhouse gas, mostly by burning fossil fuels to make electricity and to power transportation. Most scientists believe these excessive greenhouse gases (mostly CO2) cause global warming and climate change. To try to solve this problem, governments around the world have initiated emissions trading systems which force industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Individuals can help by acquiring carbon credits from these markets and retiring them or cancelling them. Batan does this for you. Guided by an expert advisory board, each Batan represents a tonne of emissions credits which we purchase and retire or cancel. See www.batan.io.
Why get Batan?
By collecting Batan, you are actively supporting the most established emissions reductions programs around the globe.

Why try to stop Climate Change and Global Warming?
It's widely accepted by governments and scientists that climate change is affecting our environment for the worse, and is at the source of extreme weather events, flooding and droughts. It's also becoming clear that it is the likely cause of species extinctions, and could eventually threaten our food supplies. Some observers believe that climate change will lead to increased human migration and conflicts over resources.
