Here at ZUMI we're happier on a healthy planet which is why we have made it our personal responsibility to make all of our products and shipments carbon neutral. It's undeniable that this planet is going to change. It has to. We don't get a choice. So it will either change by design or by disaster. That's the only choice we get in the matter... HOW we will meet that change.
And we choose by design.
This means that we will eliminated, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from both the production of our products to shipping them to your door.
Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding, wind, solar and other renewable energy projects.
We have partnered with Cloverly for their informative and detailed work to offset carbon emissions. With them, we have access to projects that are permanent and without unintended consequences (i.e., creating more carbon elsewhere while in their efforts). All of the projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards. These projects also include an element of social good, such as protecting endangered animals, or creating local jobs.
Every project is triple-verified, which means:
1. The project's financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.
2. At least one of the world's major carbon standards reviews the project.
3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.
Once your items have been placed in your cart, you'll find a message above the checkout button that reads "Your delivery is carbon neutral with Cloverly!"
This message contains a link which will take you to the project page associated with your order. Here you can find out the what, where, how's and why's of the project that your order will fund.
Every donation funds a project that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by supporting renewable energy, forestry or clean water initiatives.
Cloverly offers us access to a diverse portfolio of projects that is constantly evolving to meet customer and market demand.
With the help of Cloverly's real-time algorithm, we're able to calculate the carbon emissions from both manufacturing and shipping each unique order by looking at variables such as product type, general materials of the product, product weight, shipping distance and more.
All carbon offsets are registered and tracked by generally accepted and reputable organizations in the voluntary markets. The projects we fund are backed by:
VERIFIED CARBON STANDARD
AMERICAN CARBON REGISTRY
CLIMATE ACTION RESERVE
And other internationally recognized organizations to ensure the quality, accuracy, and integrity of the offsets and to determine that all offsets meet the standards for additionality.
