Small But Mighty, Our Environmental Impact

Posted by Shelby Barnhart on

Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, is an inspiration for limiting a companies' impact on the earth.
Fun fact, Yvon was a blacksmith when he started his entrepreneurial journey making climbing equipment before starting Patagonia. I am so thankful to have been gifted his book.

We are phasing in and sourcing environmentally friendly packaging for our products.


We have officially switched to shipping with UPS Carbon Neutral Shipping.
People who participate in the UPS Carbon Neutral Program pay a small surcharge, which is subsequently used to support initiatives able to offset the climate impact of the delivery of each package.

The UPS Carbon-neutral option is verified by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), an inspection, testing, and verification company. This means that you can have confidence in the UPS carbon-neutral method. Additionally, our carbon offset process is certified by The CarbonNeutral Company.

Carbon neutrality delivers immediate action today, supporting the transformation to a low-carbon economy.

UPS Customers can contribute to projects like Wolf Creek, which captures methane landfill emissions to generate electricity in Georgia, USA, or Chol Charoen, which captures emissions released from wastewater to produce electricity in Thailand. We take care of everything, from calculating the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to purchasing and retiring the carbon offsets.

 

Natural Capitol Partners:

Carbon neutrality drives internal emission reductions. Our research into the FORTUNE GLOBAL 500 found that companies that are carbon neutral or have a public commitment to become carbon neutral are three times more likely to have a science-based target for internal reductions than companies that aren’t carbon neutral or don’t have a commitment. 

Through carbon neutrality, companies reduce their unavoidable emissions by providing the critical funding required to reduce emissions throughout the world.
