Carbon Offseting

Everyday in the U.S. alone, e-commerce packages travel about the same distance as going to the moon and back ...133,000 times. Online shopping has transformed retail. Unfortunately, it’s also impacting the environment, and not for the better. Having an order conveniently delivered to your doorstep is a major contributor to climate change. That's why HYER GOODS offsets 100% of our carbon emissions from shipping. This achievement is the result of an effort to measure our global footprint in accordance with international certification standards, coupled with efforts to reach carbon neutrality. The full environmental impact of getting your favorite Better Leather goods delivered to your door is completely neutralized.

Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding renewable energy, forestry, or clean water projects. These projects reduce emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gasses in order to compensate for unavoidable emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online.

GHG (greenhouse gasses) are compound gasses that trap heat or long-wave radiation in the atmosphere.
Their presence in the atmosphere makes the Earth’s surface warmer.
Human activities are the main source of GHGs. The burning of fossil fuel, deforestation, intensive
livestock farming, the use of synthetic fertilizers, and industrial processes all contribute.

Frankly, no. Minimizing or eliminating your carbon emissions is the best way to lessen the negative impact your business is having on the environment. But no matter how efficient you make your supply chain, there will always be inevitable emissions from business activities. Carbon offsetting enables businesses to counteract those carbon emissions that simply can’t be eliminated. This is why carbon offsetting is a vital factor in the UN’s net zero carbon by 2050 goal, and why we are partaking in it. Is it perfect? No. But it's better than doing nothing.
