ZERO: We Know It's An Awfully Big Number
At Pine Creek Essentials, sustainability is always on our minds. Our commitment to the environment has been with us since the beginning: We've been net-zero carbon since day one.
How We're Addressing Our Role In Climate Change
E-commerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.
Together, Pine Creek Essentials and other sustainable brands have…
- Removed more than 17,000 tons of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping for more than 21 million orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, we calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
Meet some of the companies we've partnered with to remove carbon from the sky:
Heirloom's direct air capture technology enhances the carbon mineralization process. Heirloom's technology speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂ rather than using energy-intensive fans to draw air in.
Remora captures CO₂ from semi-truck tailpipes as they drive, with the CO₂ destined for long-term storage.
Charm captures CO₂ using plant waste, converts it into a stable, carbon-rich liquid, and safely stores it deep underground—out of reach of wildfires and soil erosion.
