GREEN SHIPPING1-World® Ships “Carbon Neutral”
It is a concerning fact that over half of the carbon emissions created by individual Americans are generated through the goods they purchase. This includes the transportation of raw materials during the manufacturing process, the delivery of finished goods to warehouses and retailers and finally delivered or transported to its place of use. 1-World®, as an online retailer, depends on freight trucks to deliver our products to our customers. We recognize the carbon emissions created through this process. Freight truck emissions contribute to global warming through the release of over 300 metric tons of CO2 (carbon dioxide) each year.
1-World® is pleased to be part of a growing voluntary force in the business world that is committed to reducing carbon emissions through a partnership with Carbonfund.org. Presenting a creative approach to reducing global warming, Carbonfund.org allows companies such as 1-World® a method through which we can offset emissions created by the shipment of our goods, with positive measures such as reforestation and through the support of clean energy sources such as wind and solar power. Every shipment that leaves our Seattle warehouse is considered “carbon neutral” due to the offset credits provided by 1-World®.
Like most of our customers, the staff and management of 1-World® want to participate in solutions to the problems that face our planet. We value the earth and have made it our business to contribute to global awareness, through the products we sell, and through our company practices.
"There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew."… Marshall McLuhan
