The Earth Day 2012 celebration at the famous Ithaca Farmers’ Market is organized by Sustainable Tompkins. Singlebrook purchased carbon emissions offset credits through the Finger Lakes Climate Fund, a program run by Sustainable Tompkins. The “Carbon Offset Calculator” widget allowed us to determine the carbon cost for our entire staff to commute to our Ithaca office during the month of April, as well as several business flights this month. The purchased credits will be used to make energy efficiency improvements to homes throughout the region. Local Technology for Change (T4C) in action!
