Bambeco Embraces Carbonfree® Shipping
Wednesday, 2 October 2013
Sustainable home décor e-retailer bambeco has launched their CarbonFree® Shipping program in partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation as part of the company’s goal to reduce its carbon impact.
“Bambeco was built from its inception as a sustainable company and brand focused on carbon reductions in all of our business practices. We continually evaluate our company and processes to make further carbon reductions. I am excited about our recent carbon reduction initiative to eliminate our carbon impact in 100% of our customer shipments. Working with Carbonfund.org to achieve Carbonfree® Shipping allows us to offset unavoidable shipping emissions and support renewable energy and reforestation,” explains Susan Aplin, bambeco CEO and co-founder.
Through the CarbonFree® Shipping program, bambeco calculates the carbon footprint of product shipments based on actual shipping, then offsets the environmental impact to create a carbon-neutral shipping process. “Shipping carbon-free to our customer’s door is one more step that bambeco is taking to allow consumers to live their sustainable values and help improve our environment. Together, we are changing the world, one room at a time,” says CEO Aplin.
“We welcome bambeco to our Carbonfree® Shipping program and applaud their decision to neutralize carbon emissions from product shipments to customers right from the start,” says Eric Carlson, President of Carbonfund.org. “This is an easy and affordable sustainability initiative that companies of any size can implement. It makes a difference to customers, and it makes a difference to the environment.”
