Carbon Neutral Shipping
Carbon emissions are a leading cause of the climate crisis and the repercussions we face today. Many industries are looking for ways to reduce emissions in attempt to slow down the damage made to the environment.
When it comes to logistics, shipping emits a high volume of black carbon affecting the carbon dioxide in the air.
In an effort to reduce carbon emission in the e-commerce industry, a growing number of online brands are participating in sustainable practices, including the option of carbon-neutral shipping.
What is carbon-neutral shipping?
“Carbon-neutral” refers to practices that, when executed properly, produce a net zero amount of carbon dioxide. Carbon-neutral shipping aims to reduce the carbon footprint associated with shipping packages.
Since carbon-dioxide is one of the leading reasons for climate change, switching to carbon-neutral shipping brings us one step closer to helping protect the environment and is a major effort in helping to monitor our carbon dioxide emissions.
In addition to recycled, biodegradable, multi-use, and recyclable packaging, we've partnered with Planet by Shopify
Planet automatically calculates your shipping emissions, and ensures high-quality carbon removal to neutralize your shipping footprint.
Neutralize Shipping Emissions
With Planet, every time we ship an order, we will support some of the most promising climate solutions on Earth. Each project has been vetted by the Shopify Sustainability Fund, which has committed more than $30 million to these same projects.
How it works
Every month, Planet calculates the total shipping emissions generated by Maeva's Cottage e-commerce orders and charges us per our highest impact agreement. All of this money goes toward carbon removal and ensures that online shopping with Maeva's Cottage is carbon neutral.
