The Gift Of COTAP: Thoughtful, Meaningful, & Unique

Carbon Offsets To Alleviate Poverty (COTAP) connects individuals’ carbon footprints with certified forestry projects in least-developed countries which create life-changing income for smallholder farmers who live on less than $2 per day.

Why Give COTAP as a Gift?

For that special someone who already has everything, what better gift than addressing their CO2 emissions while empowering the world’s poorest people? It’s a relevant, thoughtful, and meaningful gift to be given by, or to be received by, anyone in the world. It’s also quick, easy, and tax-deductible (for U.S. residents).

How It Works

There are just two simple steps:

1) Complete a regular COTAP offset transaction and then have COTAP notify the recipient that you’ve offset their emissions.  A .pdf sample can be seen here.

2) Forward your PayPal transaction email receipt to gift [at] cotap [dot] org with the following information:

  • Gift recipient’s name.
  • Preferred delivery method – i.e. email or mailed.  If email, you’ll be cc’d when the certificate is sent.
  • Gift recipient’s email address or mailing address, as applicable.
  • Any special message you’d like us to include.
