IT'S ALL OUR NECK OF THE WOODS.

We’re in awe at the raw power and beauty of nature—and protecting that is a commitment we take seriously.

By calculating carbon emissions for every single shipment, we’re able to offset impact with an equivalent donation to forest conservation.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Industry data is used to determine how much CO₂ emissions are released into the atmosphere, based on our shipments.

Our estimated monthly CO₂ emissions are calculated using the following variables:

PACKAGE WEIGHT: The average weight of delivered packages.

DISTANCE TRAVELLED: The distance that packages traveled, from Bearsville NY to destination.

MODE OF TRANSPORTATION: The mode of transportation used to deliver packages to our customers.

This calculation provides the cost to offset emissions based on our delivered shipments. Each month our company donates this amount to sustainability initiatives - to balance the environmental impact of our shipping emissions.

Thus far, our contributions have protected 45,832 square meters of forestland and 6,324 tree seedlings.

We are currently funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project in the Amazon Rainforest, a Verified Carbon Standard project certified by Pachama.
