Carbon Offset Shipping with Cloverly

We are proud to offer carbon-neutral shipping thanks to our partnership with Cloverly.

What does it mean to offset carbon emissions?

It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of shipping items SoulKu orders, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.

Why is this important?

At SoulKu we value our amazing and wonder-FULL environment, so we're always conscious of our impact and strive to actively work to lighten our carbon footprint. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.

What do you mean carbon neutral?

When we say we’ll be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions we create from shipping our products to your door. Will this come at a cost to me? No, we’re picking up the tab on this one! It's simply another reason to shop with SoulKu.

How does it work?

Each time you buy a SoulKu, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets," to support eco projects through our friends at Cloverly.

Projects SoulKu supports

Blue Ridge Mountains Food Distribution - Advanced Refrigeration Project

A large food distribution facility in North Carolina replaced their legacy climate-damaging cooling system with a natural refrigerant cooling system. The new Ammonia refrigeration system installed has zero refrigerant emissions, replacing a traditional refrigerant that inflicted 1,764 times more damage to the environment. The system change permanently and immediately reduces refrigerant emissions by 100%, with no risk of reversal. This facility serves local Blue Ridge Mountain restaurants, schools, hospitals and other eateries, acting as a distribution hub for fresh and frozen fruit, produce, meat, and other foods. The revenue from carbon credits allowed the hub to switch to a zero-impact refrigerant, substantially decarbonizing this piece of the supply chain at a lower capital cost.

McCloud River Conservation Based Forest Management Project

Glaciers and snowpack from Mount Shasta feed the gorgeous McCloud River, a 77-mile stream that tumbles over boulders and meanders through rugged conifer forests at the southern end of the Cascades Range. It’s a premier wild trout fishery and features several waterfalls. The offset project involves 2 forest tracts near the river, totaling 9,200 acres. Campbell Global, which specializes in sustainable timberland management, oversees this land conservation project to ensure the McCloud river will remain wild, scenic, and beloved by both trout and people.

Greater New Bedford LFG Utilization Project

This project illustrates the efficiencies and synergies that offset projects can create. It has turned a landfill near the Massachusetts coast into a multifaceted source of fuel for an electric power plant while significantly reducing emissions of climate-changing gases. Burning the landfill gas for power does emit carbon dioxide. But the Environmental Protection Agency says methane is 25 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, so trading methane for CO2 is a good deal for the planet. Electricity and waste heat from the generators help operate an adjacent anaerobic digestion facility that uses food and other organic waste to produce biogas—which goes back to the power plant as a supplemental fuel.
