Are you carbon neutral?Updated 8 months ago

We partner with EcoCart to provide a carbon-neutral option for all orders placed on our site. EcoCart directs the carbon offset funds to certified carbon offset projects like planting trees or building wind farms. They have scoured the globe for carbon offset projects that are truly additive (meaning new), permanent, and without unintended consequences (i.e., creating more carbon elsewhere, like a game of Whack-a-Mole). All of their projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards. 

Every project they fund is triple-verified, which means:

1. The project's financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.

2. At least on of the world's major carbon standards reviews the project.

3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.

In addition to carbon reduction, they pride themselves on the fact that all of their projects include an element of social good such as protecting an endangered species of animal or creating local jobs.
