Nimble Expands Environmental Commitment Through Carbon Neutrality Program

April 26, 2021

Nimble was founded on the idea that personal tech products should be made better for the planet. Nimble challenges the consumer tech industry by using more sustainable materials in all products, 100% plastic-free packaging, and will recycle old tech devices for free, closing the loop on electronic waste. 

As the only personal tech brand that’s incorporated as a Public Benefit Corporation, certified as a B Corporation, and committed as a 1% for the Planet member, Nimble is legally required to consider its environmental impact on all stakeholders including workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the planet. This includes an annual commitment of at least 1% of all revenue for ecologically-focused nonprofits and initiatives.

As part of this commitment, Nimble calculated its estimated annual operating emissions then made a donation to Carbonfund to neutralize the negative impact of those emissions, thus achieving carbon neutral business operations. 

 “Brands today make a lot of promises about their environmental impact. From the products we make to how we distribute them, we believe in trusted third-party validation,” states Ross Howe, Co-Founder & CEO.  “In partnering with Carbonfund, our customers can be sure our support for those combating the threat of climate change is not only effective, but verified.” 

Environmental impact is at the core of everything Nimble does. This includes designing and manufacturing products using materials such as recycled aluminum, recycled plastic, and plant-based bioplastic. All products are come in 100% plastic-free packaging with zero harmful inks or dyes, and delivered using carbon-neutral shipping. 

The team at Nimble also believe it’s part of their responsibly to reclaim as much new technology as they put out into the world. To accomplish this, Nimble has partnered with Homeboy Electronics Recycling to establish the One-for-One Tech Recovery Project™. Through this program, Nimble provides a free and easy method for every customer to recycle their old electronic waste for free with every product sold. Since its launch in 2018, Nimble has added more certified recycling partners to include plastic phones cases, compact discs and DVDs.
