We're excited to share that we now offer the option for you to shop greener by making your order carbon neutral! 

As our business grows we want to continue to find ways to be more sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint. We have partnered with EcoCart to help us achieve our goals and create greener spaces in your home and for the environment by off setting our carbon emissions.

What does it mean to offset carbon emissions?

It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of manufacturing and shipping items at [company name], we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.

How does it work?

Each time someone checks the carbon neutral box at checkout, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our partners at EcoCart. These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.

Why is this important?

We have always been conscious of our impact and actively worked to lighten our carbon footprint. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.

What do you mean carbon neutral?

When we say your orders will be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from making our products and shipping them to your door. 

What project do the proceeds go to?

The proceeds of you carbon neutral order directly fund the Amazon Rainforest Protection, a verified project dedicated to environmental preservation. Many of our plants originate from here, so we are proud to give back.
