We offset the carbon produced by our shipments from our warehouse to our customers by donating a portion of our revenue to efforts that remove carbon from the atmosphere (e.g. planting trees) and invest in carbon removal technologies. Together, participating businesses have:
- Removed more than thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping for more than millions of orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
