A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so the increased greenhouse gases (in this case from delivering Uranus Wiper to you) have a net impact of zero. For example, if a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, taking actions to preserve a forest remove an equal 150 g of CO2 per mile from the atmosphere will offset the carbon emissions from that shipment.
In line with one of our big hairy audacious goals of Keeping Earth Clean, we have integrated automatic carbon emissions offsets into our deliveries.
This makes every Uranus Wiper delivery to you completely carbon neutral and that much greener.
To be clear, offsets are not a replacement for taking actions to reduce our carbon footprint—they are a last resort to compensate for emissions we can’t currently avoid.
Our offsetting is made possible through our partnership with Shopify and Pachama who ensure our emission offsets are directly invested in the Jari Pará Forest Conservation Project.
The Jari Pará project is certified by Verra/VCS and is anticipated to prevent over 15M tons of Co2 that would have otherwise been emitted.
