Sustainability

This is where we track our impact

Where we're at as of Earth Day 2020 —

 

4,000 trees planted in Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

Impact — Trees For The Future

 

We parter with Trees For The Future to plant trees for every product sold in some of the most vulnerable places on earth. Each tree becomes part of a forest garden to help end the cycle of poverty, hunger, and deforestation.

"We lose trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems [more than 15 billion trees each year]. Most of this degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia where hundreds of millions of chronically-hungry, smallholder farming families use destructive and short-sighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead." — Trees For The Future

With forest gardens farmers ¹regenerate degraded land, ²increase soil fertility, ³prevent soil erosion, recycle water, protect biodiversity, and ⁶provide food security and income for their families and communities.

We're committed to reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible and offsetting what we can't reduce by 200%.

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we don’t offer express shipping (express, particularly same and next day, is more carbon-intensive than regular delivery).

Our founder is committed to reducing her personal carbon footprint and we include this in all our offsetting calculations. That means switching to a lower carbon diet, flying less, using more public transport, walking and shopping locally and seasonally.

For emissions that we're not able to reduce, we partner with Pachama and Climate Neutral to offset our footprint through forest projects. Because protecting and restoring the forests represents the most effective solution to ¹recapture carbon from the atmosphere and ²reverse climate change.

"Deforestation is directly linked to climate change. Cutting down forest land and burning trees emits CO2 that has been sequestered for decades or centuries back into the atmosphere, accelerating climate change. Alternatively, protecting and restoring forests captures CO2 from the atmosphere long-term. Incredible natural places will only survive if companies and individuals make the choice to change their practices by moving towards zero emissions." — Pachama
