The platform that hosts our site, Shopify, offers us the possibility to calculate the CO2 emissions related to the transport of the orders we ship and to compensate them through forest conservation projects managed by the technological startup Pachama you can learn more in this article in English.

What it means to offset CO2 emissions?
When an order leaves our warehouse it is entrusted to one of our trusted couriers to reach its destination. Unfortunately, road transport continues to be a significant source of air pollution because, for the vast majority, it uses fossil fuels that do not come from renewable sources and in turn produce emissions that are harmful to the environment.

However, we believe that it is important to do everything possible to improve the current situation, and that this is a step in the right direction: we compensate for what we still cannot eliminate and we are happy to think that from today our products travel with the heart a little more. light.
