Cascadia Carbon Inc. is a Portland, Oregon based B-Corporation with the simple goal of raising awareness of personal transportation choices, and as a result, changing how the world moves.
By becoming more aware of your own carbon emissions footprint, you become a force for good in the world. Together we can create positive change and a better world for yourself and those in your community.
The average American drives nearly 30 miles per day…when combined, this translates to over 3.5 trillion miles driven per year throughout the U.S.
A car produces more than 200 pounds of carbon dioxide per week, every single week of its life. That’s over two million pounds in it’s lifetime!
How does CarbonCodex.app work?
Our app calculates two metrics, called Quantified Carbon Dioxide (QCD) and Quantified Avoided Carbon (QAC) from your smartphone movement. QCD provides valuable baseline information, which we anonymize, aggregate and analyze to improve climate change calculations and predictions.
Each time you bike, walk or take mass transit CarbonCodex.app calculates the QAC as a result of your actions.
Lets say you drive to work on Mondays, and then bike and take public transit the rest of the week. Each day, CarbonCodex.app automatically senses that you biked to work, and adds your QAC to your profile, upping your rankings on the leaderboard, and giving you a boost to your teammates. As your QCD decreases, our app calculates and attributes the resulting QAC to you.
Whats in it for me?
You earn rewards while making the world a better place.
We only have till 2030 to reduce our emissions to zero and the price of the carbon you produce is likely to increase over time.
And since we tie your offset to the blockchain it stays secure, providing confidence that the credits actually were generated from a carbon neutral activity.
How does a mindful outlook work to create a positive mindset?
Whether its assisting another person, making your mindset, community, and others lives better through volunteering your time, generosity, simply slowing down, or saying hello to strangers, your ability to change your own mind through awareness, and therefore the world surrounding you is remarkable.
By being aware of your impact, it allows you to amplify your best intentions, and helps to minimize those moments when you’re not at your best. By cultivating mindfulness, you become aware of your impacts, and can assist in reducing the negative externalities caused by your actions. Mindfulness leads to the larger perspective of “We are all in this together, and we can choose, in each moment, how we react to our surroundings.” So get out of your car, breathe deeply, and go for a walk. We live in an amazing time of global inter-connectivity. Lets make the world a better place together.
Inhale. Exhale. You focus on living your best life. We’re here to help you make a positive impact.
