Turning cars green


I don't really like to plug my own work, but I've very excited about this piece.

It's an Australian first - a Carbon Offset Card from Origin.

Most of us are aware of carbon offsets, but how do you purchase them?

There are a couple of schemes as far as I'm aware, but nothing straightforward that you can simply purchase over the counter.

The Carbon Offset Card lets you offset the carbon emissions generated by your car.

You choose to offset for 3, 6 or 12 months for a small, medium or large car.

And that's pretty much it. Too easy!

The pic above shows the prototype display stand at an Origin pop up store in Melbourne.

They should be popping up at shopping centres across the country real soon.

So keep an eye out for the Origin Tree. It's the easiest way to help green your car.
