WE ACTIVELY OFFSET CARBON EMISSIONS CAUSED BY SHIPPING PRODUCTS
We calculate the cost to neutralize our emissions and donate those funds to protect forests.
Through this initiative, our contributions are currently funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project in the Amazon Rainforest, a Verified Carbon Standard project certified by Pachama.

The models and estimates used to calculate the carbon offsets are not exact, so we overestimate our emissions to make sure that they are entirely offset.
What are carbon offsets?
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same. CO2 accounts for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation.
