As Maya Chia continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward positively impacting our planet. For this reason, we have become one of the few e-commerce brands to offset our carbon emissions related to getting your orders to your door step.
This achievement is the result of an effort to measure our global footprint in accordance with international certification standards, coupled with efforts to reach carbon neutrality. For every consumer order that we ship, we now balance it with a positive environmental impact thanks to our partner, EcoCart. The environmental impact of getting your favorite Maya Chia products to your door is becoming neutralized.
This initiative comes at no additional cost to our customers because we believe it is our duty to the planet. It simply comes with the satisfaction of knowing that shopping at Maya Chia means making a positive impact on the planet.
What does it mean to offset emissions?
It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of shipping you your items from Maya Chia, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount.
How does it work?
With every Maya Chia order, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as "offsets" through our partner, EcoCart. These purchases support environmental projects, such as wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
Why is this important?
Maya Chia has always been conscious of our impact and actively worked to lighten our carbon footprint. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.
What do you mean carbon neutral?
When we say we are becoming "carbon neutral" that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate the carbon emissions we create from shipping and manufacturing our products to your door.
