There are steps, small and large, that we can take every day to help lessen our impact on the planet and create more balance. For us, partnering with Carbonfund.org and contributing to their reforestation and avoided deforestation projects are big steps that we are truly excited about. By working with Carbonfund, we offset the emissions from our offices, our GoodLight-related travels (air travel is a huge carbon contributor), PLUS all shipping involved in getting our candles across the ocean and then shipping them to all of our customers. In 2020, that meant about 100 tonnes of carbon emissions.
