“This isn’t why I got into business…

Hey there, it’s Dane from EcoCart.

If you’re a Shopify store owner and would like to boost your cart conversions while reducing environmental impact, then this may be the most important message you read today.

As a fellow entrepreneur, I’m sure you can agree…

There is no better vehicle for change than entrepreneurship!

It is THE quickest and most effective way to make a big impact on the world.

Problem is, to make a big impact…

You need a brand that STANDS for something.

And most of all…

You need SALES.

Well, in the process of starting a business, selling it, and creating EcoCart…

I discovered that the path to increasing sales, creating a better brand, AND making an impact…

Is just ONE app install away.

That’s right…

One simple app has not only helped over 10,000+ Shopify stores elevate their brand, lower cart abandonment, and attract more eco-conscious customers…

But it’s also responsible for offsetting 25 million pounds of carbon dioxide — the equivalent of saving 800,000 trees!

Now before I tell you about the app and how it works, first…

A Story of Sustainability

It was 2018…

I was running my previous company, Toyroom, a peer-to-peer rental marketplace for adventure items.

By offering a way to rent expensive equipment instead of buying it, I was delighted by the idea of making a positive impact on the environment.

As we scaled, however, it became incredibly complicated and expensive to keep with our sustainability ambitions…

Everything had an unavoidable carbon footprint.

I realized firsthand just how tough it was to help the environment AND maintain the bottom line.

Like many other businesses, we had to prioritize making money over what was best for the environment…

Or soon there’d be no business.

Ironically, this same struggle led to the “aha” moment when I found the profound and missing clarity in my business and life…

And that’s when the idea for EcoCart was born!

The Discovery of Carbon Offsets

Along with our sustainability challenge, we were introduced to the carbon offset market.

What on Earth is a carbon offset, you may be asking?

Carbon offsets are a practical way to reduce the effects of pollution and climate change…

By funding wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects, everyday people of all walks of life are able to contribute to the cause…

And ultimately, help counteract disastrous environmental issues with something truly positive.

Carbon offsets are supposed to be an accessible means to reduce our “unavoidable” carbon footprint…

Yet after tons of research and due diligence, we still had no idea how to even get started.

At first, this really frustrated us…

Especially considering how carbon offsets were such a powerful tool.

But after a while, we became inspired by the opportunity to simplify the entire process…

And we realized that through the power of technology, we have the ability to empower EVERYONE who shops online to significantly reduce their carbon footprint.

So like any business owner, I tested the idea.

I flew to CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas and went booth-to-booth talking with merchants…

I wanted to see if there was an actual need for what we thought was a solution.

I approached it like a scientist working on a research project, rather than a salesman.

After all, EcoCart was just an idea at this point, and I had nothing to sell.

After speaking to tons of business owners and serial entrepreneurs just like me…

It became clear that the demand was certainly there!

Merchants were basically beating down our door to install EcoCart — and this was before we even started developing the app!

Why We Decided To Change Our World

From inception to our initial development, to where we are now, many interesting things have happened…

Like hearing stories on how the carbon offsets are making peoples’ lives better…

To the people who finally found “the perfect solution to enable their purchases to have a positive impact on the world.”

The most amazing part of it all is the numbers…

About 1 in 3 times consumers who see the EcoCart option at checkout actually choose to make their order carbon neutral!

We were so inspired by this statistic that we felt we had to develop a consumer product to make sure EcoCart was available for users anytime and anywhere they were shopping online.

That’s when we introduced the EcoCart Chrome extension…

Which is now being used by thousands of people around the world to make their purchases have a real-world impact.

Today, we are spreading our passion for environmental change through EcoCart…

Because it’s time for the world to understand that there is a carbon footprint associated with people’s every action and purchase…

Not only are we trying to tackle this huge problem, but we want to invite ALL e-commerce brands to join us…

One-Click Away To Becoming A More Sustainable Brand

The growth of e-commerce has been staggering, especially during the past year as the world flocked to stay-at-home orders.

It’s one of the amazing benefits of modern society, but it has also put more vehicles on the road and more shipping boxes into the supply chain.

The result is a global increase in carbon dioxide (CO2).

According to Shopify, greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere are at their highest levels in history…

Sitting at 400 parts per million (ppm) as compared to 280 ppm prior to the Industrial Revolution.

EcoCart aims to bring back the balance.

With this app, you’ll be able to deliver a more sustainable shopping experience, and show your customers that your brand is aligned with making an environmental impact.

It’s a simple and free way to show your customers you care about the environment as much as they do…

How?

By giving your customers a 1-click option at checkout to offset the environmental impact of shipping their order!

Changing The World, One Order At A Time

With an ever-increasing demand for online shopping…

All those packages add up to be a tremendous burden on the planet.

We’re doing our part to not only mitigate that damage but to actually make things better!

We created EcoCart to empower consumers with the ability to offset their carbon footprint through every e-commerce transaction they make.

For e-commerce store owners, it’s a free and simple way to show your customers that you care about the environment as much as they do.

And here’s the kicker —

Many store owners who’ve installed our app are actually seeing cart conversion rates go way up!

Since adding EcoCart to their Shopify store in mid-2020, Nuzest has seen a 22% lift in cart conversion, with 15% of all their orders ship carbon neutral with EcoCart. 

That’s because high value, affluent customers are more likely to buy from brands they consider eco-friendly.

By adding EcoCart to your Shopify store…

You have the opportunity to get higher cart values and make more sales!

Because when you’re just like everyone else selling a commodity, or participating in a competitive market…

Often your brand ends up looking just like all the others.

So you need that little extra something to tip people over the edge…

A reason to buy from you vs. anyone else.

That’s why aligning with a cause is one of the most important things you can do for your brand… and your bottom line!

EcoCart delivers a simple, seamless way to do just that.

Just install EcoCart into your Shopify store…

And your customers will have the option to offset the environmental impact of their orders with a single click.

We’ve Partnered With Certified Organizations You Trust

Since our inception, we’ve partnered with over 10,000+ Shopify store owners to eliminate their carbon footprints…

To the tune of 25 million pounds of carbon offsets!

By offering carbon offsets at the point of sale, we’re allowing everyone to do their part.

The projects we fund are carefully vetted, ethically proven, and scientifically verified according to the world’s major carbon standards.

Here’s an example of the kind of impact EcoCart is making:

We work with one project that I’m particularly excited and fulfilled by. The project aims to build water purifiers for local Cambodians who don’t otherwise have easy access to clean water.

Their alternative is to cut down forests and boil river water over a wood-burning fire.

Our project is building water purifiers for local Cambodians, thereby eliminating the need for those upstream actions entirely.

This project is saving the environment and giving clean water to individuals that would otherwise not have it, which is freeing them up to lead better lives for themselves and their families.

Cool, right?

And that’s just one of several projects you and your customers can get involved with through EcoCart!

Over 90% of each dollar goes directly to projects that are proven to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.

EcoCart has now offset over 25 million pounds of carbon dioxide and is doubling our user base every month.

All of this is done at no extra cost to you, the business owner.

The app is free, with no charge to the customer for Eco Shipping calculations — breaking down the barriers to going carbon neutral.

The Eco Shipping Cost has a $0.15 transaction fee priced into it, which is how we’re able to make all of this possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What on Earth is a carbon offset?

Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects.

How do I know the money is going to the right place?

With your help, we’re finding projects that are truly additive (meaning new), permanent, and without unintended consequences (i.e. creating more carbon elsewhere, like a game of Whack-a-Mole). All of our projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards.

Every project we fund is triple-verified. Triple-verification means:

     1.  The project’s financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.

     2. One of the world’s major carbon standards reviews the project.

     3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.

Can I pay for offsets on behalf of my customers?

Yes! You can either:

     1. Empower your customers to make their orders carbon neutral.

     2. Offset carbon emissions on your customers’ behalf, making all your products carbon neutral. Even for just a day.

How much does EcoCart cost?

A $0.15 transaction fee is included in the Eco Shipping Cost. There is no cost to you, the business owner – the app is free, and we do not charge for Eco Shipping calculations.

If you choose to pay for offsets on behalf of your customers, you’ll be making a bigger impact and we’ll offer a reduced fee of $0.03 per transaction.

Will EcoCart interfere with my current checkout process?

No, in fact, EcoCart works to improve conversion. EcoCart exists within the cart and not the checkout process. Your customers will see that they have the option to make their order carbon neutral while browsing their cart, improving the likelihood that they will continue to checkout and complete their order when they see your brand’s values are aligned with their own.

Can I customize how EcoCart looks in my shop?

Of course! EcoCart is fully customizable, putting in control of the look and feel of the experience so you can properly reflect your brand’s values. Or you can simply select our default view that tells the story of your brand’s contribution to the planet in an easily digestible format.

Why EcoCart?

We calculate the carbon offset costs of each order and fund carefully selected projects – you don’t have to lift a finger.

We offer an industry-low fee structure and full transparency into which projects we fund, why we chose them, and what their specific impact is.

Our robust algorithm calculates the exact carbon emissions from both manufacturing and shipping each order by looking at variables such as raw materials, manufacturing process, product weight, shipping distance, and more.
