We have created this page on our website to centralize our transparency on the work we’re doing for social, environmental and human rights issues. This page is a work in progress and will continue to be updated as our learning and actions evolve.
What This Page Is For.
Our Carbon Offset Program
Our new offset program calculates the cost to neutralize the carbon emissions produced by shipping orders & uses those funds to protect forests. We are not raising the shipping costs to incorporate the new offset program.
The calculation takes into account the weight of each individual package and the distance that it travels to reach you.
Currently, our offset funds are being allocated to funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project in the Amazon Rainforest, a Verified Carbon Standard project certified by Pachama.
As of July 27th, 2020, we have offset 138.2 kg of CO₂, the equivalent of 17,620 smart phone charges, and have protected an estimated 1,307 m² of forest.
Black Lives Matter.
Racial violence, profiling and injustice is real, and it matters deeply. Change is not always grand, or quick. Change needs to also be continuous.
Speaking up for black lives, indigenous lives, people of colour and marginalized communities is the new normal. It is the new normal until these folks are safe.
We stand with black lives and their allies in the fight against racism and oppression. We are continuing the work within ourselves as individuals and as a company to be better allies.
What We Are Working On.
We make a required reading and exercise list for our internal team to educate ourselves with each month. You can view the list here. Included in this list this month are two non-profits we will be amplifying and a book we will be reading, and more.
We encourage you to follow this list if you can, or send us an email with suggestions of resources and learning that we can add.
