GlobalGiving, a Web site where donors give money to support international charitable projects, is adding a new section to allow donors to support environmentally friendly international projects, reports The New York Times.
The group used a grant from the Packard Foundation to hire EcoSecurities Consulting, a company that develops carbon-trading programs intended to help reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, to assist in finding projects that would help limit carbon emissions.
For example, one such project would bring fuel-efficient stoves to homes in Honduras, limiting smoke inhalation and carbon emissions and improving family health.
