How does carbon-negative work
501CTHREE works with the developers of projects that will draw down CO2 from the atmosphere. Every time we sell a hoodie, we will fund one of these projects by purchasing a carbon offset. The carbon offset is a contract to recover an amount of greenhouse gas emissions that is greater than the emissions it takes to create, use and recycle the hoodie.
Many companies and organizations are trying to become carbon-neutral, meaning they offset 100% of the greenhouse gasses they emit. We are going a step further to become carbon-negative, meaning that with the purchase of each hoodie we will offset more carbon than it took to make and deliver. If everyone selling online took this approach, our consumerism would begin to help clean up the atmosphere and help reverse climate change.
Carbon offsets for shipping
In addition to offsetting the greenhouse gasses of the hoodie, we will also offset the emissions from delivering the hoodie to your doorstep. When you put in your mailing address, we will calculate the emissions that will be produced when the hoodie is shipped to you. 501CTHREE will then purchase a carbon offset for the transportation.
What exactly are carbon offsets?
A carbon offset represents one metric ton of carbon emissions that are avoided or captured from the atmosphere. Some examples of carbon offset projects include: capturing methane at a landfill that would normally leach into the atmosphere, avoiding carbon emissions by producing energy using clean and renewable resources, or recovering greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere by planting healthy forests.
501CTHREE is offsetting our hoodies by investing in two types of projects. The first is a tropical rainforest conservation project in Brazil. The Pursus Project, developed by Carbonfund, will protect 86,000 acres of Amazon tropical rainforest from deforestation. More information about the project is available here.
The second offset is an urban forestry project under development in the Pacific Northwest. Healthy trees are a vital part of healthy cities, removing pollution and breaking up the harsh landscape of concrete and asphalt. Urban trees help in many other ways, from stabilizing the climate and preventing runoff to reducing energy consumption and increasing property values.
