Introducing Carbon-Neutral Shipping

Every year around Earth Day, we take a look at in the impact our company is having on the earth. We might be small but we can’t underestimate the importance of focusing on your own impact on the environment, no matter how small it appears. We truly believe if every person looked at their own carbon footprint and actively tried to reduce it, the world would be a better place. 

In the past, we’ve switched to using more earth-friendly shipping materials and sourcing from sustainable brands. This year, we’re focusing on the carbon footprint of ecommerce deliveries and trying to “clean up after ourselves” by offering carbon-neutral shipping.  

Here's how it works: for every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.

When you place an order with Dottir, we will automatically contribute toward offsetting the shipping emissions and give you an opportunity to chip in a few extra cents to do the same. Together, we can contribute to the removal of thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere via companies like Grassroots Carbon and Mast Reforestation. 

Grassroots Carbon helps ranchers modify land management practices to improve soil and ecological health, which captures and stores more carbon in soil. Mast Reforestation combines proven forestry practices with new technology to regrow healthy, resilient, climate-adapted forests lost to wildfires. Mast’s services include seed collection, seedling cultivation, reforestation services, and financing based on high-quality carbon removal credits.

We’re excited to not only have discovered a new way to make Dottir a more climate-friendly company but to also give our customers a chance to feel good about their purchase. If you have any questions about carbon-neutral shipping or our climate commitment, email us at hello@dottir.shop. Happy Earth Day!
