local (Hawai'i Based) projects

Find below our growing list of local offset options.  CarbonBuddy is constantly developing new projects that will give you the option to support energy efficiency, renewable energy or native ecosystem restoration (carbon sequestration) projects here on the Islands of Hawai'i.
