Big City Beards Carbon Neutral Shipping

Every time you place an order with Big City Beards moving forward, we will be offsetting the CO2 emissions with the purchase of carbon offset credits to neutralize the emissions that resulted from the delivery of your order.

Thank you for your support and together we can make every little bit count when it comes to protecting the environment. We are proud to partner and use PLANET by Shopify, to provide the tools required to track and calculate the offset credits required for 100% Carbon Neutral Shipping for all our products to all our customers. We continue to look for opportunities to meet our commitment to the environment and Carbon Neutral Shipping has helped us to reach our goal by offsetting our CO2 emissions associated with product transportation and delivery through the purchase of carbon offset credits. 

What are Carbon Offset Credits?

In short, a carbon offset credit reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same.

Earth friendly green footprint

We are excited to invest in this sustainability initiative to counteract the environmental impact of shipping and contribute to certified projects, complying with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards.

How We Can Measure Our Impact?

Working with the PLANET by Shopify app provides many different options for purchased carbon credits. We selected PLANET, because it allowed us to specifically track the total amount of shipping emissions, and the amount of carbon offset credits we purchased. Further, we can run reports tracking the environmental impact benefit of the carbon offsets. Follow us on Social Media for updates about our environmentally-friendly statistics.

Taking it Next Level By Using Recyclable & Compostable Shipping Packaging

We are always looking for ways to take things to the next level... In combination with offsetting our shipping CO2 emissions, we also use recycled, compostable paper based packaging, packing, and boxes. Making it easy for you to join in and contribute by recycling our packaging after the shipment reaches your hands. Instead of throwing our boxes and packing out, please use the recycling or composting services in your area, such as curbside recycling collection. Together, with each little step we all make, we can make huge environmental change.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our Carbon Neutral Shipping program and how it works. We are proud to know that every little step helps when it comes to global warming. If you have any questions or comments regarding this post please feel free to send us an email.
