Online eco-friendly and sustainable consumer products retailer Salvos has expanded its own commitment to environmentally-responsible operations by joining the Carbonfree® Small Business Partnership Program.
Salvos offers eco-friendly and sustainable products in Home, Beauty, and Fashion. The mission of Salvos is to make it easier for people to shop for products that are genuinely eco-friendly and ensure they are actually making a difference for the environment, and the Salvos website provides information about each product’s environmental advantages.
“The entire essence of Salvos is a commitment to improving our environment. The environment and climate are being degraded because of how our economy is structured and how we make and ship products,” says Salvos Founder, Gurwin Singh Ahuja. “The first step in building an ecologically sustainable economy is taking control of our carbon emissions and we partnered with Carbonfund.org because it is the gold standard program to offset any organization’s carbon footprint.”
Through the Carbonfree® Small Business Partnership Program, Salvos is neutralizing 36 metric tonnes, or about 80,000 pounds, of greenhouse gas emissions by supporting Carbonfund.org’s high-quality carbon emissions reduction and offset projects.
In addition to the Carbonfree® Business Partnership commitment, Salvos offers only sustainable and eco-friendly products to its customers, provides free carbon neutral shipping, and plants one tree for every ordered placed on its website.
The environment is a vital stakeholder for Salvos, along with traditional stakeholders such as customers, employees, and shareholders. The company name, Salvos, means ‘survival’ in Latin and reflects the company’s fundamental belief that our economy must be sustainable for the modern economy and civilization to survive.
