We try to be a Sustainable brand, that's why we offer EcoCart during checkout and use Eco-Friendly Packaging and shipping materials. With EcoCart you can make a donation to sustainable projects worldwide that help offset the carbon footprint of your order. With one click, EcoCart automatically calculates and eliminates the carbon footprint of your order.
What is a Carbon offset?
Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding renewable energy, forestry, or clean water projects. These projects reduce emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online. EcoCart helps us by calculating the emissions created from your order and donates the exact amount required to reduce those emissions directly to these projects on your behalf.
What do you mean by Carbon Neutral?
When we say orders will be “carbon neutral,” that means that with the help of EcoCart we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from shipping your order. How are you making my orders Carbon Neutral? When you activate EcoCart at the checkout, we send a commission to EcoCart that they use to fund certified carbon offset projects like planting trees or building wind farms. That means you get the same products without the carbon footprint.
How do you determine the carbon footprint of each order?
EcoCart’s algorithm uses the unique characteristics of each order, including product type, shipping distance, and item weight to estimate the shipping emissions created by that order. The algorithm determines the exact cost of offsetting the emissions from manufacturing & shipping each order. You have the option to check the EcoCart box to make your order carbon neutral, usually adding 1-2% to total cost. EcoCart will fund world-changing sustainability projects on your behalf.
