CARBON NEUTRAL SHIPPING
WE PLANT ONE TREE FOR
EVERY ORDER YOU PLACE
Every order at Caramelo Chains comes included with carbon neutral shipping whether you are ordering from North America or internationally. After every order is shipped out Caramelo will plant one tree on your behalf. Our goal is to eliminate the carbon footprint creating in the shipping process of your new order. The carbon dioxide (CO₂) created by your online shopping with Caramelo is ultimately offset from the CO₂ absorption from the tree planted.
How Much CO₂ Does Tree Absorb Per Year?
Well that's a great question! The answer is actually simple to understand and clear why we should support this tree planting initiative.
1.30 LBS OF CO₂
2.16 LBS OF CO₂
The ground delivery of a small product like Caramelo Chains (under 1 pound) within a 500 miles radius creates roughly 1.30 pounds CO₂. Compared to shipment by air which creates roughly 2.16 pounds of CO₂.
Now this is where the magic happens... after planted your tree not only will it offset your specific order's carbon footprint but also many other to come in the future.
1 TREE CONVERTS 48 LBS OF CO₂
Every year 1 tree will absorb 48 pounds of CO₂ from the atmosphere per year and convert is to oxygen. So each tree that we plant for your Caramelo Chains order will be going above and beyond making your shipment carbon neutral.
