offsetting our footprint
leaving a positive impact through investment.
Being an online business we avoid the emissions created by maintaining an office, commuting to a workplace, or travelling for business meetings.
Nonetheless, we invest in offsetting the same amount of carbon produced by a small business that does all of the above, often more.
We partner with Ecologi to ensure we're offsetting much more than our own carbon footprint.
at our current company size, our monthly contribution covers:
trees planted each month
tonnes of carbon reduction per month
of the UN's sustainable development goals contributed toward.
our current monthly contribution is the equivalent of either:
project's we've contributed to with our carbon offseting investment:
Peatland restoration and conservation
Peatlands are a type of wetland and are among the most valuable ecosystems on Earth.
These unique habitats store massive amounts of carbon, with stocks below ground amounting to up to 20 times the amount stored in trees and vegetation.
We invest in The Katingan Restoration and Conservation Project, which sets out to protect and restore 149,800 hectares of peatland ecosystem.
landfill gas to energy
The Samsun Landfill Gas to Energy Project is an innovative project to capture the landfill methane released from the Samsun landfill site, and convert it into clean electricity.
Estimated emissions reductions from this project are around 142,395 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents per year. The project will also benefit the local community by providing employment and training opportunities.
Protecting old-growth rainforest in Peru
Madre de Dios, Peru
Madre de Dios is the third-largest, and least densely populated, region of Peru.
It is home to much of the Peruvian Amazon.
The region has historically been subject to numerous conservation challenges. These include extraction of the rich natural resources in the area – including rubber, timber, and alluvial gold.
The local community is reliant on the old-growth rainforest, but protecting it from degradation and deforestation activities has been a challenge.
Supporting the community to both safeguard the rainforest and to establish sustainable sources of income are therefore top priorities in the region.
Producing energy from waste rice husks
This small project involves the implementation of a 5MW cogeneration power project powered by waste rice husks.
The project is designed to meet growing electricity demands as local manufacturing infrastructure develops, without producing increases in fossil fuel energy usage.
Whilst biomass power and waste-to-energy solutions are often considered ‘bridge’ solutions, small projects like this one help to provide funding for sustainable development – as well as producing emissions reductions like the projected 28,442 tCO2e annual reductions from this project.
Cleaner cookstoves in Zambia and Ghana
This project replaces carbon-intensive charcoal stoves with fuel-efficient insulated stoves, known as the Toyola Coalpot, across Ghana, which are 33% more fuel-efficient than traditional cooking methods and significantly reduce both air pollution the amount of biomass required.
This project also replaces ‘three rock’ fires in homes with cleaner stoves, which dramatically cut annual biomass usage by up to 66%.
Communities also benefit from lower fuel costs, reduced exposure to damaging pollutants, faster cooking and increased cleanliness and convenience in the home.
