Is Carbon Calculator a Charity?
Not yet—but we're working on that. In the meantime, Carbon Calculator commits to publicly releasing revenue metrics and using any profits to purchase carbon offsets. This means Carbon Calculator is a good way to automatically offset your online shopping.
How Does Carbon Calculator Make Money?
On certain websites the Carbon Calculator browser extension will modify the URL to include our affiliate link (which means we'll get a cut of the sale if you purchase the item you're looking at). This is transparent to the user, and it does not allow Carbon Calculator to collect any information on users. We never see your data; therefore, we can never sell it.
