Voluntary Carbon Tax

Voluntary Carbon Tax at Fresh Pond

 

Fresh Pond Meeting will create a fund for receiving money from members who

agree to paying a voluntary carbon tax. The money collected will be distributed at

regular intervals but at least once a year. Recommendations on how to distribute

these funds will be made by the Earthcare group in consultation with the people

who have adopted the voluntary carbon tax. Distributions from this fund will be to

groups that are engaged in reducing carbon usage, mitigating the effects of

climate change, working for eco-justice or educating and advocating for changes

related to climate change. Preference will be given to groups working in New

England. The recommendations will be brought to Monthly Meeting for approval

before the funds are disbursed.
