We're proud to partner with a company that shares our commitment to protecting the planet for future generations.
Offset CarbonLearn more about this app
Here at our website, we're committed to doing our part to protect the environment. That's why we use Shopify's innovative Planet app to offset our carbon emissions. Every time we make a shipment, the app calculates the amount of carbon dioxide that's released into the atmosphere based on weight, distance, and transportation type. Then, it charges us a small fee per shipment to offset those emissions. The funds are used to purchase carbon credits, which are invested in deforestation protection projects and support companies like Grassroots Carbon. By partnering with Shopify and using the Planet app, we're taking tangible steps towards a more sustainable future. Join us in our mission to protect the planet and shop with confidence, knowing that your purchase is helping to create a greener world.

We take our environmental impact seriously, and that's why we partner with TreeNation to offset our website's carbon emissions. Using their cutting-edge algorithm, TreeNation is able to accurately estimate our website's emissions, calculating just 0.02 g of CO2 per page viewed. Once they have this information, they can calculate the number of trees needed to offset our emissions and pass this information on to their global network of planters, along with the funds needed to get the job done. By planting trees, we're not only offsetting our emissions, but we're also helping to combat deforestation and create a healthier planet for all. Join us in our mission to protect the environment and shop with confidence, knowing that every purchase you make is supporting a greener future.
Sustainability & Coverage Green Shipping Protection
In addition to our own efforts, we offer you the option to further reduce your carbon footprint by adding either our Sustainability & Coverage Green Shipping Protection or Shipping Carbon Offset to your order. Our Green Shipping Protection service uses recycled and biodegradable materials, offsets our emissions, and partners with carbon-neutral carriers to minimize our environmental impact. Alternatively, our Shipping Carbon Offset program allows you to neutralize the emissions from your shipping by offsetting them with verified carbon credits. With our help, you can take an active role in reducing your carbon footprint and supporting sustainable projects around the world.

One Tree Planted has doubled the number of trees planted every year since their inception in 2014, and they now work with partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa to restore forests, create jobs, build communities, and protect biodiversity.

Cleaning the Ocean
At check-out, we donate a portion of your order to The Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation and/or Ocean Conservancy Inc., two non-profit organizations dedicated to preserving and protecting the ocean environment. The Ocean Cleanup North Pacific Foundation's mission is to remove and recycle waste from oceans, starting with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. They aim to finance continued expansion through the sale of recycled plastic. Ocean Conservancy Inc. advocates science-based solutions to reduce the impact of ocean plastic and protect critical ocean habitats. Both organizations raise funds and organize events to support their global initiatives.
Trees for the Future
At checkout, you have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact with your purchase by donating a percentage to Trees For The Future. Our planet is losing trees at an alarming rate, with destructive agricultural practices being a major contributor. Trees For The Future's Forest Garden Program is a proven solution that helps smallholder farming families in developing countries plant thousands of trees, leading to sustainable food sources, increased income, and improved livelihoods. The challenge lies in training millions of low-literate, dispersed, and chronically-hungry farmers to implement this system. But with your donation, we can make a real difference. By planting trees, we not only help combat deforestation but also provide families with income, education, and empowerment. Your support enables us to transition families from unsustainable farming practices to a sustainable Forest Garden system, transforming their lives and communities forever. Join us in this important mission to make a positive impact on our planet and the people who need it most.
Helping women regaining strength
At Casa delle Donne di Ravenna (House of Women in Ravenna, Italy), they are taking a stand against violence and abuse towards women in Italy. As a non-profit organization, they are committed to providing support and services to women who have experienced these issues. At Earth Thanks, we recognize the vital importance of this work and share the belief that true equality and freedom are crucial to achieving self-awareness, respect for human communities, and a better future for our planet. That's why we were proud to support their inspiring event, FemTalk - Feminist Dialogue Festival in 2021, and we will continue to stand with them in their mission to empower women and promote gender equality.

All comes down to one crucial factor: your choice. As a consumer, you hold immense power. The choices you make determine what products are produced and sold, and ultimately, their impact on the environment, animals, and people's lives. Each time you make a purchase, consider the impact it may have. Take a closer look at the product's description and think about the ethical implications of your choice. If we all choose to support eco-friendly products, the impact would be monumental. We could mitigate the devastating effects of pollution, deforestation, and endangered species. Ethical consumerism is the key to a cleaner, more sustainable world, and it all starts with your choice. So, let's make the right choice and make a difference!
