For decades human beings have been emitting carbons every single minute. Since we care about the earth, we should be more aware of the hazard that we give to it. To heat, to transport, to use electricity, and to cook cause a carbon footprint which is not exactly the kind of footprint that we want to create. The carbon footprint is the amount of all greenhouse gases (CO2) in tons equivalent, including carbon dioxide that is emitted into the atmosphere by our activities and consumption in daily life.
There are two types of carbon footprint: direct (primary) and indirect (secondary) carbon footprint. Direct carbon footprint appears when we do something directly such as cooking and driving. On the other hand, indirect carbon footprint means the whole process of a product starting from the production to the disappearance of the good.

Why is the carbon footprint so important?
Because we are dying!
As we all know greenhouse gas and global warming influence each other, Greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous monoxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulphur hexafluoride) released using fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. The accumulated gases prevent the sun's rays from reflecting, causing global warming, and an increase in the temperature of the earth. Reducing carbon emissions, which is seen as the main cause of the greenhouse effect today, in other words, reducing the carbon footprint takes the first place in the fight against the climate crisis.
Here comes the assistance to eliminate the carbon footprint: carbon credit
A carbon credit is a generic term for any tradable certificate or permit representing the right to emit a set amount of carbon dioxide or the equivalent amount of different greenhouse gases.
In the 2021 issue of the Carbon Pricing Status and Trends Report, published annually by the World Bank, it is stated that there are 64 carbon pricing mechanisms implemented globally to reduce carbon emissions. These mechanisms consist of mandatory (such as ETS, carbon tax) and non-obligatory (such as voluntary carbon market) practices.
Carbon credits are emission reduction units used to report each tone of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas reduction made by an activity that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. These credits are called Verified Emission Reduction (VER). The definition of greenhouse gas emission reduction represented by these credits, also known as carbon offset certificates, is made regarding activity with an equivalent capacity of greenhouse gas emissions.
That is what we do! We are switching from non-renewable energy to renewable energy. We are considering obtaining a certificate offering carbon credits.
