Guess what? We recently found an app called Cloverly which allows us to offer carbon neutral shipping on every order. We're pretty excited to be able to provide this to our customers.
What Is Carbon Neutral Shipping?
Every time something is shipped, it has an effect on the environment. Cars, trucks and airplanes take that package from point A to point B (and maybe onto point C and D, too). Businesses use electricity and natural gas to produce goods and during everyday activities like printing and packing orders. And with more and more people shopping online, our collective carbon emissions just keep on rising.
But You Can Reduce Your Individual Carbon Footprint
Cloverly is able to calculate the carbon footprint for every order so that the customer can decide if they'd like to pay a few extra cents to offset it. The app uses that money to purchase renewable energy credits in an amount that neutralizes your footprint. Cloverly utilizes a global network of reputable suppliers to sequester, avoid, reduce, and offset carbon emissions so you can feel better about shopping online.
How To Participate
All you have to do is look for the "Reduce Your Carbon Footprint" box at checkout and tick the checkbox next to the dollar amount (it is normally less than $1). It will always show you exactly how much you'll be charged. If you have any questions, just send us a message!
