About Us

Settle for Less was founded so that each person can combat the climate crisis every day.

Who are we?

Welcome to our platform. Our team created Settle for Less to allow people to offset the carbon emissions produced throughout their day-to-day life via a simple, personalised subscription. Generally for less than the cost of a coffee a week. Our team are passionate about allowing people to affect the climate crisis in a quick easy way and our platform helps each person do that.

How can we help you become carbon negative or neutral?

Our platform can help you to calculate your carbon footprint, understand how to reduce this and finally help you to offset your emissions, or even go carbon negative, through collaboration with our carefully selected partners. There are a number of ways to offset emissions, we are currently focusing on reforestation projects as our principal offsetting schemes. However, we will be introducing more in future.

Sounds exciting, how do I sign up?

We're currently building the platform with a plan to launch in the coming months. But if you are interested we encourage you to join our mailing list (we'll have bonuses for early adopters). If you can't wait to get started and want to offset right away, you can become a Founding Member. We are passionate about encouraging more-and-more people to offset their emissions and any contributions will help with that mission.
