"1000% Better. Stunned."
"I searched for hours to find a quality carbon offsetting site for individuals. Now that I have found COTAP I'm stunned. This is 1000% better than I dared hope for - for the quality of results you chase, for the wonderful projects you support, for the brilliant information about your projects, and for your accessible ways for individuals to purchase offsets. I've encouraged my friends to use you too. Thanks for all that you do!"

"An Awesome Organization"

"Increasing My Impact"
"The issue of global inequality and poverty in the developing world is truly one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today. At the same time, the impact that people are having on our environment threatens the longevity not just of humankind, but of our planet. COTAP empowers me to magnify my impact by addressing both issues at the same time."
"Real, Measurable Change On Two Fronts"
"COTAP empowers me to make positive change in multiple communities around the world while counteracting my contribution to the long-term, ‘macro’ problem of climate change. It's real, measurable change on two fronts, and that makes COTAP very innovative and unique. COTAP's the wave of the future and I want to see it grow to reach more donors and communities."
"A Simple, Effective Solution"
"COTAP is the solution for my carbon footprint that I can't erase on my own. Their process couldn't be more simple, and not only am I able to offset my carbon footprint, I am having a direct, positive, measurable impact on reducing poverty. What more could I ask for?"
"Big Up to COTAP"
"The North American leg of the #FLYRASTA tour will start soon. Big up to Carbon Offsets To Alleviate Poverty (COTAP) for helping us offset our carbon footprint while we're on the road. We still have to do more. #ThankMotherEarth"

"A great way to do the right thing."
"Climate change and poverty are big challenges and COTAP is a great way to have a meaningful, measurable impact on both. As an individual, I can volunteer my time but pragmatically I'm able to magnify my impact by donating a few hours of the money I make in my day job to COTAP. I committed this year to be CO2 neutral via reductions in my CO2 emissions from my lifestyle (less flying, bought an electric car) and through offsetting the CO2 I generate. Microsoft matches my contributions to COTAP so I end up offsetting 2x the CO2 I generate. According to the IPCC report we need to all get to 600 lbs/CO2/person/year to keep warming under two degrees. Along with personal reductions in emissions, carbon offsets can help to reverse the previous excess CO2 we've all added to the atmosphere. COTAP is a great investment in future generations. Thanks COTAP for making it so easy and fun!"

"COTAP's about way more than climate change and carbon offsetting, because they address economic inequality too. They're more global, transparent, and accountable than other offset providers, and most charities in general. They're a refreshingly positive antidote to the always-negative and disempowering national climate conversation. COTAP's also compelling because they properly contextualize themselves with regards to the need for footprint reduction, and how they fit in with California's progressive policies like the Climate Credit and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard."
