Breathe and Flow Makes Carbon Offset Initiative with Carbonfund.org

December 22, 2020

Breathe and Flow is a wellness organization run by two RYT500 yoga instructors who publish weekly YouTube videos and teach workshops, lectures, and retreats. They believe that yoga is a beautiful healing system for health and happiness so they’ve devoted their lives to teaching it to others.

As Breathe and Flow encourages yogis to travel and explore the world around them, the instructors also understand a responsibility to sustain and protect the beautiful places we all have the privilege of visiting.

“We understand the devastating effects that humans have on the environment which is one of the reasons why we became minimalists, stopped contributing to animal agriculture, and we do our best to reduce our waste. We were heartbroken to find out how damaging flying is to the environment so we’re honored to team up with Carbonfund.org Foundation to give back and find ways to improve our earth and our future,” explains Bre Niedhammer, Owner of Breathe and Flow.  “We’re proud to partner with Carbonfund.org to offset our unavoidable energy expenditures by giving an annual donation to this incredible nonprofit organization to offset our carbon use. Carbon offsetting is a practical and effective way to address climate change by contributing to projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, develop clean technologies, preserve forest conservation, and support a more sustainable future.”

Even with a plant-based diet, not owning a home nor car, reducing belongings to one backpack each, and living a very minimalist lifestyle, Bre and Flo understand that this still doesn’t offset one of the most carbon-intensive activities known to mankind: flying in a plane. With their Carbon Offset Initiative, they take responsibility to sustain and protect the beautiful places they get to visit and enjoy.
