Each shirt from TiO2 Clothing pays for 1 carbon offset. That offset buys 1 metric ton or 2,200 lbs of CO2.
How is a carbon offset created? The main way a carbon offset is created is through renewable energy. When a renewable energy source creates enough energy to offset the burning of fossil fuels that would create 1 ton of carbon dioxide, an offset is created.
During the lifespan of a 5kWh home solar panel installation, an average of 100 carbon offsets are created and 100 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide are avoided. The cost for a carbon offset ranges from $10-25.
