At Pure Buttons we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We know that shipping orders nationally, and especially internationally has a carbon cost that we’d like to reduce or eliminate. We are pleased to announce that the carbon cost of deliveries shipped from Pure Buttons and StandOut Stickers via UPS will be made net zero from now on through the UPS carbon neutral program.
What is carbon neutral shipping? To put it simply, each UPS delivery has a “carbon cost” associated with it based on weight, destination, and delivery method. This amount is calculated and then “offset” with investments in green / renewable energy projects, rainforest preservation, tree planting, carbon capture and more.
How do I get carbon neutral shipping? Simply choose one of our many UPS shipping options. We have made all of them carbon neutral at no additional cost!
As average consumers, it is incumbent upon all of us to take steps to reduce our waste and environmental impact. Offering carbon neutral shipping is one of the many changes we are taking to reduce our footprint in the coming years. Stay tuned for more announcements on this topic.
For now, UPS is the only carbon neutral shipping option available to us. USPS is making efforts to optimize their fleet vehicles and facilities but as of now does not offer a carbon neutral option. We will update when this becomes available for all carriers. For now, you must choose a UPS shipping method if you’d like carbon neutral shipment.
Can I get free carbon neutral shipping? Our FREESHIP code is programmed to offer the lowest cost shipping option as “free” and then discount all other shipping options by the dollar value of the lowest cost shipping option. Many times on larger orders, UPS offers the cheapest shipping option, so this will in fact be the free option. That being said, using FREESHIP can still offer discounted carbon neutral shipping even if USPS is the free option for your particular order. (note: coupon code FREESHIP is valid on orders over $25 shipped to contiguous USA).
How do I identify carbon neutral shipping options? We have marked our UPS carbon neutral shipping options with a this 🌱 seedling emoji to make them easier to spot during checkout. Thanks for helping us reduce our carbon footprint by choosing carbon neutral shipping!
