Sustainability Story

Beyond being carbon neutral, we believe in doing more to help the environment in these times of crisis. So we’re also funding the restoration of forest and marine ecosystems damaged by the production and disposal of single-use paper and plastic. To date, we've planted over 25,000 trees and removed over 2.5 million plastic water bottles from the ocean through our donations to nonprofit partners. We are also working towards a more closed-loop, sustainable future by designing out the waste from our packaging, extending our products lifespan through modularity, and running a take-back program to ensure products are recycled at the end of life. From products that empower our customers to live zero-waste, to the positive impact we make through our partners and closed-loop efforts, we’re using our business to make a difference.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.

This certification covers business activities and operations for the following brands :

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

Emissions from energy used in buildings, fleets, and equipment.

tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

Emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, air travel, and other activities in the supply chain.

231 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

The sum of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

233 tCO2e

02 Offset
