Adopt Meters

Join the
to Reverse
Climate Change

Arms raised in protest at a rally. Our future in your hands is written on many people's hands.
See what $5 and the power of people can do.

We only have one chance
to reverse climate change,
so let’s do it!

Watch video to see how

Scientists tell us that if we draw down our old emissions while stopping new ones, we get twice the impact on climate change.

Even better? Nature will draw down our old emissions if we restore the planet’s soil for her.

And we can all do that for just $5 a meter. Adopt-A-Meter has already restored millions of meters. Now it’s time for all of us to show the world what we can do.

Farmers are
the Key to
Restoring Soil.

And over a billion of them are women.

Most carbon in our atmosphere came from fossil fuels. And most of those (coal, oil, natural gas) came from our soil. Unfortunately, Nature can’t put that carbon back because chemicals and other industrial farming techniques have destroyed up to 70% of our topsoil, according to the UN.

But we can restore it, and farmers around the world are already on their way. They just need our support.

Climate Change, meetRegenerative Agriculture.

The Power of Soil Restoration

Regenerative Agriculture works with Nature, and not against it.

It doesn’t use chemicals, or plow up all the living things in the soil that leave it dead or degraded. And, it can start bringing soil health back, and carbon back down, within the first year.

Just one acre of restored land can bring tons of carbon down every year. And there are over twelve billion acres of farmland around the world.

5 million meters and counting.

There are many ways to join the movement. Stay up to date to learn how we are all reversing climate change, together.

How we do the work.

Adopt-A-Meter is a program of The Carbon Underground, an organization created in 2014 to reverse climate change by taking our old carbon emissions and putting them back underground. Over the years we have worked with hundreds of companies, governments, soil experts and farmers around the world on projects that restore our soil and draw down carbon threatening our future.
