We clean up after ourselves.
Ecommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon we use from the air. Together, with other participating businesses on Shopify, we have helped remove thousands of tons of carbon from the atmosphere and provide carbon-neutral shipping for millions of orders.
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
We donate 1.1% of all online sales to meaningful climate projects that we believe in. We've also switched to carbon neutral shipping on all orders.
Let's meet a few of the companies removing carbon from the environment.
Heirloom's direct air capture technology enhances the carbon mineralization process. Heirloom's technology speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂ rather than using energy-intensive fans to draw air in.
Remora captures CO₂ from semi-truck tailpipes as they drive, with the CO₂ destined for long-term storage
Grassroots Carbon offers nature-based soil carbon storage solutions to companies aiming to reduce their carbon impact.
Charm captures CO₂ using plant waste, converts it into a stable, carbon-rich liquid, and safely stores it deep underground—out of reach of wildfires and soil erosion.
