In celebration of Earth Day, we’re launching the option for our customers to offset their shipping carbon emissions at checkout. We're offering this option because it is the most requested shipping feature by our customers. However, it is just one step in our efforts. We believe that before offsetting, it is critical to mitigate our impact at the beginning of our supply chain, and this is what we strive to do with our renewed, continuous efforts.
We’ve partnered with EcoCart to power our carbon offsetting. So, for a small additional (and completely optional) fee, customers can choose to contribute to EcoCart’s sustainability initiatives.
EcoCart works with over 1000 brands to offer offsetting solutions with projects such as funding renewable energy, forestry expansion, and community initiatives. Together, they’ve helped offset over 11 million KG of CO2. Their efforts are vetted and certified by groups like the Verified Carbon Standard, American Carbon Registry, and Energy Globe.
With EcoCart, you can follow along with their projects to see how the money contributed is having an impact. Take a look at some of the projects they’ve been involved in here.
Carbon offsetting is a completely optional service, and Baabuk does not profit in any way from our partnership with EcoCart. It’s just one more way that we’re helping all of our customers to do their part for the environment should they wish to do so.
As we continue to grow and learn, we aim to take an even more local approach to our sustainability efforts. Join us in this first step of offsetting, and please continue to share your ideas on how we can continue to improve our efforts.
