03 Reduce

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

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to use Injection Molding to reduce excess acetate usage.

How We'll Reduce It

By switching from our current hand carved acetate model to the use of injection molding, Ombraz will now be shaped using a method that uses more precise measurements and reduces the amount of waste. Excess plant based acetate will be re-used in the mold.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to do Remote Team Building as the Ombraz team expands from three full time employees into a 5+ person staff.

How We'll Reduce It

We will hire remote staff to avoid daily carbon emissions from commuting or plane travel on a quarterly basis. The individual footprint of each employee will be offset through our tree planting initiatives and travel offset tokens

Other Sustainability Notes

We plant 20 mangrove trees for every pair of Ombraz that we sell. With the help of our partners at Eden Reforestation Projects, we sequester 1383x more carbon than is emitted to produce and deliver each pair of Ombraz - making a pair of Ombraz the most carbon negative product currently available on the market. Our tree planting initiatives provide meaningful employment to impoverished areas in Madagascar. 20 trees absorb over 13,600 pounds of Carbon Dioxide per year, prevent soil erosion, and provide habitat critical for diverse ecosystems. We calculate our personal carbon output and plant additional mangrove trees to offset all carbon emitted for Ombraz staff travel. All of our backend shipping materials are strategically reused.
