The Carbon Underground

Solving climate change from the ground up.


Los Angeles, CA – EIN 465582094

The Carbon Underground is an umbrella organization responsible for communicating and educating the world. They educate people about the power of healthy soil to combat climate change and to facilitate the transition of enough farms and grasslands globally to restore a healthy climate.

According to the UN, mismanagement of soil has resulted in a loss of as much as 70% of topsoil worldwide. We have as little as sixty years left before the terrestrial foundation for feeding the planet is gone, according to a prediction by the UN. Destroying the soil is also having a massive impact on climate change.

To help solve this issue The Carbon Underground focuses on five key areas: Corporate Impact, Education & Training, Policy, Communications, and Adopt-a-Meter.
