Welcome to a New Era of Sustainability

The Power of Choice: Why It Matters

In a world as diverse as ours, where everyone carries a unique set of values, priorities, and passions, choice becomes a beacon of empowerment. When it comes to sustainability, this notion holds a profound significance. At Terrapass, we recognize that the path to a greener future is not a one-size-fits-all journey. Instead, it’s a tapestry woven with the varied threads of personal convictions and aspirations.

Embracing Diversity in Sustainability

Sustainability is not a monolithic concept; it’s a kaleidoscope of values and concerns. Some of us are impassioned by preserving our planet’s rich biodiversity, while others are driven by the imperative to combat climate change head-on. Terrapass understands that these diverse perspectives are the lifeblood of our collective commitment to environmental well-being. What speaks to your heart might not resonate with your neighbor, and that’s perfectly okay. In fact, it’s beautiful. It’s a testament to the richness of our worldviews and the depth of our connection to the environment.

Choose Your Path to Tailored Sustainability

For a limited time, we are excited to present you with the opportunity to lend your direct support to either a forestry endeavor or a landfill gas initiative.

Klawock Heenya Improved Forest Management Project

Nestled amidst the pristine wilderness of Klawock, Alaska, the Klawock Heenya Improved Forest Management Project is a testament to the power of preserving our planet’s lungs. The mission behind this extraordinary initiative is clear; enhance carbon sequestration and prevent emissions from deforestation, reducing approximately 138,000 metric tons of CO2 annually.

The Klawock Heenya Projects protects a vast expanse of 8,600 acres of forest on Prince of Wales Island, of which 1,000 acres are home to centuries-old trees and a breathtaking array of biodiversity. These forests have served as a lifeline for the local community, providing essential resources such as firewood, housing materials, and canoe logs for centuries.

However, from 1980 to 2015, commercial timber harvesting nearly depleted these lands, leaving only a fraction of old-growth forests intact. Since then, natural regeneration has breathed new life into these lands, fostering thriving second-growth forests with trees reaching up to twelve feet in diameter.

By supporting the Klawock Heenya Project, you’re contributing to the long-term sustainable governance of this precious forest, ensuring its protection and preservation for generations to come.

Greater New Bedford Landfill Gas Utilization Project

In the heart of Massachusetts, the Greater New Bedford Landfill Gas Utilization Project exemplifies the transformative power of harnessing methane and carbon dioxide emissions from landfills. This initiative involves the operation of a gas-to-energy plant that produces approximately 3.3 megawatt hours of clean electricity.

The Crapo Hill landfill, in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, covers 69.8 acres of a 152-acre parcel of land. Since its inception in 1995, it has received municipal solid waste and construction and demolition debris. This landfill, which doesn’t fall under the Federal New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) regulation, has become a shining example of environmental innovation.

The landfill gas, including methane and carbon dioxide, is collected and utilized to fuel four reciprocating internal combustion engine generators, creating clean electricity for the community. By supporting the Greater New Bedford Landfill Gas Utilization Project, you’re directly contributing to reducing harmful emissions and generating clean energy.

Your Unique Sustainability Journey

Your sustainability choice matters. It’s an affirmation of your values, a declaration of your priorities, and a reflection of your commitment to a better world. When you choose to support a sustainability initiative through Terrapass, you’re not just offsetting carbon emissions; you’re embarking on your own unique sustainability journey. By offering you a selection of projects to support, we empower you to channel your contributions towards the causes that matter most to you.

Your dedication to sustainability drives positive change, and we believe it’s high time you have the power to decide where your carbon credit contributions go. Now, you can directly support projects that truly resonate with you, making a tangible environmental impact. Welcome to a new era where you choose the path of sustainability that speaks to your heart.
