OFFSET CARBON FOOTPRINT
We Ship with Planet
More than just carbon neutral shipping
How it works?
At Kicks For Gents, we actively offset carbon emissions caused by shipping our products with the help of Planet.
Planet helps us to calculate the cost to neutralize our emissions and donates the Shopify Sustainability Fund.
The Shopify Sustainability Fund
Through this initiative, our contributions are currently funding entrepreneurs whose businesses support our planet by developing technologies that actively remove carbon from the atmosphere!
Reduce, remove, reverse
There’s no easy fix for climate change, and no solution that will singlehandedly solve the problem. We have to try every possible option, from those that leverage natural processes to new technologies that lock carbon away forever.
We need existing solutions that can make a difference now, and emerging technologies that could have a huge impact in the future.
Shopify’s Sustainability Fund pays the early-adopter premium for carbon removal, funding pilot projects and generating demand to kickstart the market and drive down future prices.

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.
