Hell yeah we are! We're CarbonClick certified and we think it's the best thing ever! This forward thinking company makes offsetting the carbon footprint of an online purchase happen with just a click, giving you the opportunity to take immediate action against climate change every time you buy a pair of pants!
Consumers now more than ever are expecting businesses to step up and play their part in the fight against climate change. So this is our chance to help our customers to carbon offset when making a purchase. Undoubtedly not the sole solution to the climate crisis, but it's definitely a good start.
So what is carbon offsetting you ask? WELL.
Carbon Offsetting is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere.
Carbon offsetting schemes such as CarbonClick allow individuals and companies to invest in environmental projects around the world in order to balance out their own carbon footprints. And CarbonClick offset projects are guaranteed. You can trace any offset purchased right back to the source!
And how does CarbonClick work?
CarbonClick looks like a green button at checkout. When you click it, a small contribution is added to your basket which purchases carbon offsets. These offsets reduce the environmental impact of the carbon emissions related to the purchase. CarbonClick funds forest restoration, tree planting, and renewable energy projects around the world.
“One of the benefits of the system is that people can see the good they do right away. It’s one of the reasons we believe that our offsetting technology will see greater uptake rates than previous systems” says Rouse - CEO of CarbonClick.
We're very proud to be part of the fight against climate change. We'll be making our own contributions and we will continue to look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We hope you'll join us by choosing CarbonClick with your purchase. Give it a go next time at our checkout and feel like a climate hero taking control of your carbon emissions!
If you fancy becoming CarbonClick certified, their carbon offsetting application is now available in New Zealand and on the global marketplace Shopify. G'wan, you've no excuse!
