At Dropps, we believe that sustainability is a journey, not an end state. We are constantly taking steps to lighten our load on the environment, and reduce greenhouse gases associated with our normal business operations. We are thrilled to announce that we are now providing carbon neutral shipping on all orders through our purchase of carbon offsets to cover our direct and indirect carbon emissions.
How does it work?
Carbon offsets enable organizations like ours to reduce our environmental impact by supporting projects that are actively working to reduce, absorb or prevent carbon and other emissions from entering the atmosphere. These projects can be in the form of forestry conservation efforts or based on a technology that captures gas before it is released such as at a landfill or farm with decomposing waste. Carbon offsets are tools that help to make these projects financially viable. Our purchase has an environmental impact equivalent to taking 138 cars off the road for one year!
This purchase is an important step on our sustainability journey. Moving forward we plan to become an entirely carbon neutral company.
