What if we could take the pollution that's causing climate change, capture it from smokestacks and even from the air around us
, and use it to make products and materials that we use every day? We can
Climate change is the single most important issue facing humanity. We know that carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases are warming the planet and we know that most of this CO2 is coming from the burning of fossil fuels.
This means all we have to do is stop burning fossil fuels, right?
Unfortunately, even if we were to completely stop burning those fossil fuels - which we have to do - there's already far too much CO2 in the atmosphere. We must remove that excess CO2 from the atmosphere
. What can we do about this?
We're glad you asked. We have tools to fight this crisis.
New technology exists that can prevent more CO2 from entering our atmosphere and, more importantly, capture the CO2 that's already there
. This technology, along with natural methods of taking CO2 out of the air (planting forests, growing algae, better farming practices, etc.), can help us fight and reverse climate change.What's even more exciting is we can take these captured CO2 emissions and turn the carbon into products and materials that we use every single day.
SkyBaron has partnered with Carbon Upcycling Technologies in Canada and several manufacturers to bring you products made from captured and recycled CO2. We're doing this to fight and raise awareness about climate change and help us all live climate-friendly lives.
We're making carbon neutral and carbon negative
products and putting them in your hands. This is a step towards creating a sustainable future and building a circular carbon economy - where we recycle our carbon emissions.
The funds raised here will be used to ensure our early operations run smoothly and that we have the resources to grow our audience and get our message heard. What we raise here will help cover the continuing costs of developing the website, producing media and promotional materials, advertising, and legal fees.
We've decided to raise funds on GoFundMe because it will allow us to maintain control over the company's direction and not lose sight of what we're trying to accomplish.
You're also ensuring the development of products you can use every day that will help us fight climate change.
Please send us your questions! We look forward to answering them.
Thank you so much for your time and for supporting SkyBaron. Even if you decide not to contribute, we hope this has captured your interest enough to follow our development. We look forward to moving forward together to #rewindtheclimate.

Founder & Principal, SkyBaron
An individual or entity that plays a role in building a circular carbon economy and reversing climate change.
The name SkyBaron plays on the term used to describe 20th century oil titans. Oil barons transformed society and made their fortunes from the fossil fuels that simultaneously power and threaten our civilization. It’s now the 21st century and we must again transform society to clean up the mess. We can remove from the sky the carbon that was extracted from the ground and burned. In doing so, we become SkyBarons.
