03 Reduce

Native Maps is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

  • We are working with French Paper Co. as a supplier to source papers that are made with renewable hydro-electric energy at their Michigan mill. Most of these papers are either FSC certified or 100% recycled.

  • We are changing all possible shipping supplies to be recycled, paper-based materials (rather than plastic). Paper padding rather than bubble wrap. Kraft paper rather than plastic bags. We are also planning to offset the carbon footprint of each shipped package by the end of the year.

Sustainability Story

Here at Native Maps, we are grateful to have a very small footprint to begin with. We're a small team, and we print and ship everything out of our studio in Knoxville, TN. We have always sourced responsibly-made paper and chosen earth-friendly printing methods (no VOCs). Partnering with Climate Neutral has given us the chance to step back and look at every aspect of our business, from plastic tape substitutes to what papers we offer. We've notices that a few small changes can make for much less waste. We're excited to put these efforts in place now and revisit our certification yearly so that as we grow, our carbon footprint will shrink.
