Zero Carbon, Zero Waste
We wanted Good Emporium to also be zero carbon, zero waste. We didn’t want to add to the problem.
But that’s not easy, as we have discovered.
We started by partnering with Sendle for deliveries. They offer carbon neutral deliveries, by offsetting the carbon emissions produced by your delivery, through their partnership with the South Pole group.
Not as good as carbon zero delivery (eg: bikes and electric cars), but it’s a start.
We also shred all the packaging that our products come in, and use that as filler. You can then use that filler for compost, which is better than recycling.
Our own boxes are made from 100% recycled paper, and we don’t use any plastics in any of our packaging.
Our cards are lovely seed cards from Nurturing Nature, so you can plant them and grow things.
We’ve got a long way to go, and we’ll keep learning.
If you have an idea to help us reduce our carbon and waste, please let us know!
