Sustainability Story

At PopSockets, we believe in making impactful products to support happier and healthier digital lifestyles in a sustainable way and using our platform to catalyze positive change. Our sustainability approach involves making products that help extend the life of carbon-intensive mobile phones while using a minimal amount of materials, measuring our carbon footprint, and embracing the power of plants in our products, policies, and partnerships to reduce our footprint. We offset remaining carbon emissions by supporting partners who have innovative models to reduce food waste and facilitate a transition to plant-rich diets, two of the most significant yet often overlooked strategies to address climate change on a global scale.

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.
