Plastic Free & Carbon Neutral Shopping

We ensure a minimal carbon footprint by sending you packages separately - directly from where it is created and shipping them Plastic Free. 

How We Ensure a Minimal Carbon Footprint for Your Orders:

We ship everything Plastic Free (right from product materials to packaging and shipping materials used), on an average, our products help us reduce our plastic footprint by approximately 4.1 Kgs per product for each product sold.

This effectively means, on an average, we save 24 kgs of carbon emission for each product sold. The carbon footprint of plastic (LDPE or PET, poyethylene) is about 6 kg Carbon Emission for each kg of plastic.

In total, we have been able to save 2,03,602 kgs of plastic from entering into landfills (since November 2019).

How Your Orders Are Shipped:

If you will notice, the products you will order will all be shipped from different locations and not a central warehouse. This is because we ensure the products are shipped directly from the source of production to you. It is called a drop-ship model that helps us minimize the transportation & emissions involved for the product.  In this case, only 2 locations involved: from production location to the customer

You can read more about How We Pack.

How We Offset our Footprint:

Over and above reducing the transportation involved, we also calculate the actual carbon emissions we have made for the above mentioned trips and offset them by planting trees with Grow-Trees.com

Each Tree Planted helps us offset 20 kgs of carbon emission per year.

15,834 trees have been planted by Brown living till date, contributing to 6,15,762 kgs of carbon offset in total per year and created 1025 jobs in these plantation regions.

Why trees? Tree planting creates low-skill jobs, and trees provide benefits to current and future generations, have a direct impact on carbon reduction, restoring forests, improving wildlife habitats, and upgrading water catchment areas, and offer flowers, fruit fodder and fuel for local communities and all living creatures. 

You can also contribute to our efforts by opting for a carbon-neutral shipping option in your cart page. This will give you an eTreeCertificate which you can purchase here.

Trees for Cyclone-Affected Area, Balukhanda Wildlife Sanctuary, Odisha, India
