Our House In Our Hands
We are aware of that one of the biggest problems of our planet is the plastic use and we are doing our best to reduce using plastic. We have reduced using plastic for packaging our products and shipping packages over 30% and we have a target to increase it to 80% before the end of the year. We know that we still have to use plastic packaging for some of our products. We will start using recyclable plastic packages for these products. We are expecting a help from our costumers that received their orders with recycling the shipping packages and we have a responsibility for raising the awareness about this.
We have decided to have a collaboration with One Tree Planted and our costumers can plant a tree while they are placing their orders. This collaboration helps One Tree Planted to help planting trees, restoration from forest fires and floods, as well as creating jobs, building communities, and protecting habitat for biodiversity. We find this collaboration very important to help One Tree Planted to do all of these and we have created a page with informations about this collaboration and we are sharing the tree donation certificates to raise the awareness.
Neutralizing CO2 Footprint
We are aware of that we are creating a carbon footprint with shipping our orders and we are funding Pachama & Verra to neutralize our carbon footprint. Our Offset contributions have supported forest protection initiatives. Our support protected 30.887 m² estimated area of forest and 4.081 tree seedlings since November 2020. Our contributions are currently funding the Jarí Para Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon Rainforest.
We are aware of that the people who are in need, and we have decided to take action and support organizations like Kizilay. We are donating some of the clothes in our stocks and the products that has small defects or small printing errors to the Kizilay Organization.
