We walk the walk.
All across EarthHero, you’ll find stories of Earth changing, ground breaking companies who are a force for good…but this is the page where we’ll toot our own horn! EarthHero is committed to environmental and social responsibility in all aspects of our operations, from our product selection to the way we handle office trash. We’re proud to say that we’re a Certified B Corp, a member of 1% For The Planet, carbon neutral through CarbonFund, and committed to be Carbon Neutral Certified.
From public transparency to environmental performance (and so much more), being a B Corp means we’re working alongside a network of companies looking to redefine what success in business really means. Businesses awarded the B Corp title have met the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. They’ve been assessed, and scored, based on how the company impacts its workers, customers, community, and environment – and then this information is released to the public via the B Corp directory (check out our page here!) Being a Certified B Corp isn’t just a one-and-done thing, but rather an ongoing adventure into becoming the best version of your company that exists! B Corp companies (like us!) are constantly looking for ways to increase their Impact Assessment Score, and therefore their sustainability metrics as a whole.
1% for the Planet
EarthHero is proud to be a member of 1% For The Planet. We donate 1% of our sales annually towards sustainability initiatives and organizations that give back to the planet. All team members at EarthHero also take part in local environmental initiatives to support our community.
Online shopping has the power to share sustainability with those hard-to-reach areas, but shipping has its own effect on the environment around us. EarthHero has partnered with Carbonfund.org to ensure that your products arrive with the least amount of impact possible. We use Carbonfund’s Carbon Calculator to offset the carbon emitted through the shipping and transport of products, as well as our day-to-day operations. By supporting reforestation projects, we’re working to mitigate climate change with every shipment. Check out our carbon offset certification here!
At EarthHero, we have been committed to reducing our carbon footprint since the very beginning – and getting Climate Neutral Certified means taking our climate commitments to the next level! We are proud to share our commitment to becoming Climate Neutral Certified by November 2021. Through this process, we are working to measure and offset our 2020 carbon footprint and reduce our emissions moving forward. We will purchase carbon credits through our existing partnership with Carbonfund.org, which will go towards climate change solutions like renewable energy development and reforestation projects. The Climate Neutral Certification process also involves making a plan to enact real and lasting changes to lower our overall emissions – with the goal of one day reaching zero emissions.
We’re dedicated to reducing our consumption and lowering our impact in every way possible. From the coffee grounds that fuel our days to the styrofoam packaging from our new printer, we compost and recycle whatever we can – even if that means finding special collections facilities for hard-to-recycle items. EarthHero employees can be found using reusable dishware, printing on 100% recycled paper, and accidentally turning the lights out on coworkers by habit (whoops). We’ve put special thought into everything that’s in our office, from our reusable water bottles to refillable whiteboard markers. We sweat the small stuff because we know the small stuff adds up.
