The Offset Project (TOP) was founded by Kristin Cushman in 2007 after she inadvertently found herself in the sustainability field while following her personal drive to recycle, compost and up-cycle. Eight years later, TOP has developed an unprecedented network of clients, volunteers and sustainability partners. The organization also runs California’s first local community carbon fund - the Monterey Bay Carbon Fund - and has become the Monterey Peninsula’s go-to for event and business sustainability certifications, workshops and trainings, and management of zero waste events. Learn more about TOP at
