Since we care deeply about creating a business that gives back to nature but endeavour to offer a harmonious balance between conscious and delightful consumption, we offset your whole CO2 emission from delivery. This initiative comes at no additional cost to you. It simply comes with the satisfaction of knowing that shopping on Urbankissed means making a positive impact on the planet. Read more here about our global leading partner Tree-Nation which also collaborates with Google or Nivea to take the right environmental actions. Thanks to Tree-Nation's advanced technology and know-how, we can also compensate 100% our website’s CO2 emissions.
Okay, so to be more specific: For any sale on Urbankissed, we plant one tree within our small but growing company forest located in Madagascar. The species we decided to plant is called Rhizophora Mucronata (found on coasts and river banks in East Africa and the Indo-Pacific region).
One tree of the specific species we plant offsets 1kg CO2 annually and around 20kg CO2 throughout its lifetime (average natural life span: 25 years). For a 0.5kg parcel, our tree will compensate a route from Lisbon to Berlin by air within one year. However, throughout the tree’s lifespan, our tree will compensate for the same package 20 times this route. This initiative as well as our two other campaigns ("plant a tree for free" & "@tag a friend to plant a tree") where we plant even more trees enable us to compensate CO2 emissions faster and to be CO2 negative!
*Calculations based on data from CarbonFund.org - leading the fight against climate change
**For efficiency reasons, Urbankissed plants collectively all trees coming from this initiative and the other campaigns at the end of every month.
Did you know that apart from offering a 100% Neutral CO2 Delivery, Urbankissed plants a tree for free for every newsletter subscriber? As we care deeply about creating a business that gives back to nature, let's grow our small but growing company forest in Madagascar together with our partner Tree Nation. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. Your tree within our forest will, for example, overall compensate more than 20 deliveries by air from Lisbon to Berlin.
