CarbonNet came to Atilus as many new clients do. Battered and upset. Unfortunately, CarbonNet’s former web development company left them with a nearly complete, but completely useless website. The website, which was supposed to feature a custom calculator and purchasing tool, was not complete, and after months of what was described as a “customer service nightmare,” they were hesitant ANY web development firm was legitimate and could truly meet their needs.
Fortunately, we took a chance on each other and the experience has been amazing!
Many of us at Atilus are alumni or current students of Florida Gulf Coast University and because of FGCU’s strong focus on the environment through various required courses we are all too aware of current environment problems both locally and nationally.
With that in mind, CarbonNet commissioned Atilus to finalize their website and build out a unique Carbon Calculator. The Carbon Calculator, is a simple tool by which you, a TERRIBLE POLLUTER, can plug in your average car mileage, electric bill, and Plane flights throughout the year, and get an immediate idea of how much CO2 you are emitting. And, in the same step, it automatically will tell you how many trees need to be planted in order for you to offset that CO2 you are emitting, even allowing you to immediately purchase those trees.
This one-stop-shop for pollutant awareness and resolution is a revolutionary idea and we hope to help everyone at CarbonNet grow and market the idea throughout the coming years.
