All of our order deliveries continue to be carbon neutral. Sourcing offsets now come from the Acapa – Bajo Mira y Frontera Forest Conservation Project in Colombia through Pachama to counteract the emissions from shipping every order.
Offsets now come from the Acapa – Bajo Mira y Frontera Forest Conservation Project in Colombia through Pachama. Pachama uses machine learning with satellite imaging to verify the carbon stored by this project, and Shopify has conducted additional due diligence to ensure this is a high quality project.
Why was this update made?
The Jari Pari REDD+ Forest Avoided Unplanned Deforestation Project has sold all of the offsets it has generated to date. This means the project area will remain protected until the next issuance of offsets. The Acapa – Bajo Mira y Frontera Forest Conservation Project is a project of equivalent quality that needs our support.
Why use Offset
Offset allows us to neutralize our shipping emissions that contribute to climate change. When you shop with me, you are proudly supporting an environmentally friendly business that invests in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping.
Offset is excited to work with Pachama and contribute to certified projects, complying with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards.
Offset shipping emissions
Every month, Offset calculates the total emissions generated by our shipped orders, and that number becomes our monthly Offset cost. The price is low, and our Offset payments go towards forest protection initiatives.
Measure your impact
From our Offset dashboard, we can see the total amount of shipping emissions we’ve offset and the environmental impact benefit of those offsets, including how many trees we've paid to protect. Want to see these environmentally friendly statistics? Just ask!
Note: Currently, Offset does not have a widget or customer dashboard - until they do, we are happy to share screen shots from our dashboard. 😊
