Making use of a new technology, our UK customers will now be able to offset the CO2 produced from shipping their order.
So how does it work?
Once you enter your shipping address at the checkout, your coordinates will be used to calculate the number of miles that your parcel will have to travel. This information, along with the weight of your parcel, is then used to estimate the amount of CO2 that will be produced from transporting your order to your doorstep.
Our energy partner then calculates how much green energy would have to be purchased to offset this CO2. Using this, we can then give you the option to purchase this small amount of green energy and offset your delivery.
Currently all green energy is purchased in the USA at a variety of wind and solar farms. This technology is still very new, but as soon as it becomes possible to purchase the green energy in the UK, we'll make the switch. Whilst this feature is currently only available on UK shipping, we will be making it available in other countries as soon as it becomes possible to do so.
