We like to work with businesses who are spreading joy, not pollution. We also like free stuff. Which is why we offer free standard shipping for our Australian customers with Sendle; Australia's first carbon neutral shipping service.
But is the delivery footprint really that massive? Well… yes. We know for sure that it’s not just puffs of glitter that are coming out the back of delivery vans. The contribution of carbon emissions from delivery vans and trucks are very substantial.
Up until now, Aussies have had little choice when it came to environmentally kind delivery services. For many people, emissions seemed to be ‘part and parcel’ of getting something from A to B. Thankfully, this is no longer the case.
Our postal provider offsets shipping emissions through two projects, The Tassie Native Forest Protection Project and the Ghanaian Cookstove Project through Climate Friendly. We know that carbon emissions are having a huge impact on our planet and the people who live on it, so we're trying our best to do something about.
We're glad to say our postage satchels are also made from recycled plastic materials.
Carbon neutrality is baked into the very fibre of our domestic postal provider, and we're so happy to be offering that service to our domestic customers for free.
* Carbon Neutral shipping excludes express post, or delivery to PO boxes and international addresses.
