How It Works
We donate a portion of every sale to our partners at Sprout + The Eden Project. The trees we plant support wild life diversity, improve coastlines, and grow Mangrove trees which are an incredible carbon sink.
The Impact of Planting Trees
Mangroves are unique ecosystems found throughout a wide range in the tropics and occupying the intertidal areas of more than 120 countries. Mangroves, and coastal wetlands in general, are globally important for the many services they provide to humans and the planet. These services include protection against storm surges, sheltering nurseries for fish and other marine life, providing building materials, firewood, and providing critically important services to stabilizing the global climate as an important store of carbon.
Mangroves Drastically Reduce Carbon
With the rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the last century, the need forenduring carbon sinks has grown. The latest models suggest that to remain within “acceptable” global temperature increase, it is no longer enough to simply reduce emissions, and protect existing forests, but rather than we need to rapidly increase theability to sequester carbon. Globally, mangrove systems are estimated to hold an astounding 20 petagrams of carbon. For a biome representing less than 5% of the world’s terrestrial area, this makes mangroves one of the most important carbon stocks, even more than many rainforests like the Amazon. Equally, as a relatively fast-growing group of species, mangroves sequester carbon at a very fast rate.
As of Sep. 2022 we offset 100% of carbon emissions from shipping and packaging on every delivery. The climate crisis is here. So is our commitment to a better future for our planet.
How It Works
We are working with Planet by Shopify to neutralize our shipping emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.
There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.
We donate to orginizations that have innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization as well as nature-based carbon removal.
