Does anyone here know anything about this? I must have a suspicious mind, but I don't think that I'd give money to a company. If I wanted to carbon offset I'd spend my money directly or plant my own trees.
My work offers something like this, i was a bit suspicious too so i'v not looked into it much... I'll try to find some info & post for you...
