EcoCart community impact
lbs of CO2 offset
We do this by...
Protects a Spruce forest in Massachusetts that captures over 100,000 metric tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide every year.
- Captures a significant number of carbon emissions each year
- Protects the habitat of a variety of threatened mammals, birds, and reptiles
- Experienced forest management project operator
Providing clean water
By filtering water instead of boiling it over a wood-burning fire, these locally made purifiers prevent 90,000 tonnes of carbon emissions and protect 450 hectares of Cambodian forest every year.
- Reduces air pollution while protecting forests and local ecosystems
- Creates jobs and economic growth in under-served communities
- Reduces child illnesses and deaths caused by contaminated water and indoor pollution
Creating wind energy
Generates clean energy to displace fossil fuel-based power, installing 94 new wind turbines to provide 360,000 MWh of reliable and clean energy to the grid in Kayseri, Turkey.
- Displaces fossil fuel-based energy
- Diversifies the country’s energy balance and helps address demand supply gaps
- Alleviates poverty in the local community by providing construction and operations jobs
See why people love us
Fighting climate change for free while shopping at my favorite stores was a no-brainer.
Love this app! I don’t have to do anything and EcoCart offsets the environmental impact of my orders.
I’ve already earned $30 of Amazon gift cards, just for buying makeup at Glossier and ULTA.
I love that I can choose which project to support. I know exactly where and how I’m making an impact.
I’m always looking for ways to reduce my carbon footprint. Now I can just by clicking a button.
This is definitely the easiest way to help save the planet doing what I do every day anyway!
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 gases in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online. EcoCart calculates the emissions created from your online orders and donates the exact dollar amount required to reduce those emissions directly to these projects on your behalf.
When we say orders will be “carbon neutral,” that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from shipping your online orders. “Net zero” is another term you might hear and it’s simply another way of describing what happens with carbon offsetting.
When you activate EcoCart on one of our partner stores and checkout, we receive a commission that we use to fund certified carbon offset projects like planting trees or building wind farms. That means you get the same products at the same cost, but without the carbon footprint.
EcoPoints are what make up the free EcoCart rewards system. You earn EcoPoints every time you make your order carbon neutral with EcoCart that you can redeem for earth-saving rewards like planting trees or giving clean water to families. OR you can use your EcoPoints just like cash, and redeem them for gift cards at your favorite stores!
EcoCart offers a few ways to find stores that support sustainable shopping. With the extension installed, you can: 1) Just shop like normal and EcoCart will notify you when you’re in a store that supports carbon neutral shopping. 2) When you search for stores on Google, participating stores will say “Shop Sustainably” next to the website name. 3) Or you can browse participating stores that offer carbon neutral shipping through the EcoCart extension.
Our algorithm uses the unique characteristics of each order, including product type, shipping distance, and item weight to estimate the shipping emissions created by that order. Since each store uses a different shipping method, we assume a standard mix of shipping transportation that includes sea, air, and truck.
