Polluters pay. People get a carbon cashback. 💰

Who says it doesn’t pay to address climate change?

Why is a carbon cashback good for Americans?

With a carbon cashback, corporate polluters pay a fee on their carbon pollution for the damage they do to our environment. The money collected is sent directly back to Americans in the form of a monthly payment that we can use however we choose. It’s a fair way to get polluters to eliminate their carbon pollution, and it doesn’t cost the government additional money.

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 Carbon cashback helps low- and middle-income people

A carbon cashback helps low and middle income people afford higher prices as America transitions to a clean energy economy. With carbon cashback, the majority of low and middle income people will break even or come out financially ahead.


🩺 Improves public health

A carbon cashback will keep Americans healthier and living longer by reducing the air pollution Americans breathe. It will save up to 90,000 lives each year lost to air pollution.


🌎 Supports a healthy climate

A carbon cashback will help us reduce America’s carbon pollution 50% by 2030—putting us on track to reach net zero by 2050.
