New Carbonfree® Business and Shipping Partner Baloo Living aims to achieve its mission to inspire and support self-healing for all people. Their signature product, a weighted blanket, provides relief for those suffering from anxiety or insomnia. The weighted blanket works through Deep Pressure Touch (DPT), which signals to the nervous system that it is safe to relax and rest. The experience of the mind-body connection this provides is profound, and in this state, one can access greater feelings of peace and well-being.
Baloo Living’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable operations led the decision to partner with Carbonfund.org to offset estimated annual business emissions and to calculate and submit emissions data related to product shipments, both from product manufacturers and to the end customer.
“Respecting the environment is one of Baloo’s key values, just as we respect the power of the body’s ability to balance and heal, we believe that appreciating the Earth for all she gives us and giving back to support her systems serves us all and our greater well-being,” explains Elizabeth Grojean, Founder and CEO of Baloo Living. “Choosing clean and natural materials, and looking for ways to give-back have been important to us since the beginning. We continue to learn and look for ways to improve, and we’re grateful for the Carbonfund.org’s work and support in those efforts.”
This focus on the quality and impact of its products, supply chain, and on the communities it serves demonstrates Baloo Living’s leadership in responsible operations. The company also uses only textiles certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard and use lead-free glass microbeads. Additionally, they are phasing out the use of all plastics and polyesters, towards 100% natural, biodegradable materials in all products and packaging.
Carbonfund.org is proud to welcome Baloo Living to the Carbonfree® Partnership Program.
