Early this year, we began working with our UPS representative Chris Moore to implement the UPS Carbon Neutral Shipping Program.
The program allows us to tread a little more lightly on the Earth.
Through the program we will purchase carbon credits to offset 100% of the carbon created by our UPS shipping. We will become one of the first UPS clients in the Pacific Northwest to utilize this new Program.
The carbon credits or offsets are aimed at funding projects such as wastewater treatment, methane destruction and landfill gas destruction.
UPS to used its proprietary calculation system to figure out how much carbon is put out by the shipping of TOM BIHN orders via all UPS services. This process is verified by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), an inspection, testing and verification company.
You, our customers, will notice that boxes and packages you receive from us that are shipped via UPS feature a Carbon Neutral sticker, designed to inform – and assure you – of our participation in this program. Other than that, your experience with us will be as usual – we don’t charge you for the carbon offset. It’s on us.
For us, offsetting the carbon footprint for our UPS shipping was a
no-brainer: whenever and wherever we can make real strides to lessen the impact of our business on the Environment, we do it.
