Our mission drives us to leave as little of a trace as on the environment as possible. The one thing that is completely out of our control, and somewhat of a necessary evil, is the carbon it takes to get your order to you, via fossil fuel burning delivery trucks. Carbon offsetting is the closest thing available to us at this time attempt a net zero emission goal for the last mile of Populace Coffee's journey to your mailbox.
We have integrated an app called Cloverly onto the backend of our site that purchases carbon offsets for every order made.
These Carbon offsets are automatically purchased by Populace Coffee after every new order is created. In February we purchased offsets that are equal to offsetting 659 total pounds of carbon.
We're planning making a progress report that will show our carbon offsetting numbers, and where those offsets are being used in the world every month.
