EcoCart x Hidden Gems
Every day, we are inevitably releasing planet-warming carbon emissions into the atmosphere. It happens when we take a shower, charge our phones, or let out a yawn after a long day. Just like humans release carbon pollution, so do businesses - and Hidden Gems is no exception.
Everyday in the U.S. alone, e-commerce packages travel about the same distance as going to the moon and back ...133,000 times. And it’s not just getting your order to your doorstep we have to worry about - our entire supply chain carries a hefty carbon footprint. Scouring the globe for the perfect materials and transforming them into the pet products you know and love means tons (literally) of planet-warming carbon pollution.
What Hidden Gems is Doing
In order to offset our carbon footprint, Hidden Gems are partnering with EcoCart to empower all the pawrents at Hidden Gems to make their orders 100% carbon neutral.
For every one of our amazing items that ships, you can now offset the specific carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact! This means the full carbon emissions from producing, manufacturing, and shipping your favourite products to your door would be completely neutralized.
Every donation that you make at our checkout will contribute to the Global Forestry Projects which supports the reforestation, protection, and management of forests all over the world. Now you can rest easy knowing that shopping at Hidden Gems means making a positive impact on the planet.
How does it work?
Each time someone checks the carbon neutral box at Hidden Gems, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart.
These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
