I’m Nick Huzar, the cofounder of OfferUp, the largest local mobile marketplace in the U.S.
On a monthly basis, I would watch billions of dollars worth of second hand goods exchange hands through
the marketplace we started over a decade ago in 2011. This has led me to seek answers to questions about
how my very existence impacts our planet. I think we all wonder this to various degrees.
If you look out the window you can watch the effects of global warming take shape in front of us.
There are many things people can do to make an impact but the problem seems complex and insurmountable.
Many feel hopeless and don’t know where to turn. While there are multiple causes for global warming,
“stuff” and everything associated with stuff is by far the largest contributor to global warming
accounting for over 30% of the 50 billion tons of CO2 released into our atmosphere annually.
I feel a deep connection to this problem and decided to do something about it. StuffTV.org was created
as a way to enlighten people and suggest simple actions we can all take to help drive
down our own CO2 emissions. Together, we can make an impact.
To make a positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions
(specifically CO2) via enlightenment and action.
Together we can make an impact.
