Did you know that when you order from me and choose to get your order delivered that I ship with a courier that is 100% carbon neutral?
I am committed to reducing my carbon footprint wherever I can.
What is carbon neutral? Increased carbon dioxide (and equivalent) - CO2e - levels are a significant and harmful contributor to climate change.
Most people don't consider the environmental impact of their online shopping deliveries – just clickety-click and, like magic, it's on your doorstep. But the logistics involved generate a huge amount of CO2 - over 10% of global CO2e emissions are from transport and logistics.
Being carbon neutral means that your net release of CO2e into the atmosphere is zero.
Basically, whatever CO2e you emit is cancelled out by a process known as 'offsetting' – that is, supporting projects that reduce emissions, like regenerating precious forest, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology, or even training communities in beekeeping!
Consumers are becoming better informed and more aware of the environmental impact of products and the services supporting them. 92% of customers are more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues.
I use Sendle, which were founded as Australia’s first 100% carbon neutral delivery service, and they maintain that commitment to this day. They’re also Australia’s first tech B Corp!
HOW DO THEY DO IT?
Sendle calculates the highest amount of carbon that could be generated by any given parcel send. This generates a carbon yield number. Using that number as a guide, they use each parcel contribution to fund sustainability projects via South Pole.
