When I took the eco dog for it’s first walk, I expected all manner of things, not least of all that the distribution method was eco-friendly.
Whilst I’m still yet to achieve a truly eco-friendly solution where we ship direct from our suppliers to your door, I was able to find myself a courier company that is carbon neutral.
As part of providing awesome products to you, we wanted an option that commensurate with our vision for conducting business.
“We see a world where good businesses succeed: Home enterprises, Small businesses, Makers, reUsers, Social Enterprise, NFPs, Volunteer organisations, Sharers, Recyclers. This is a world of diversity and choice, where anyone with a great idea can make a difference and where delivery does not have an impact on the planet – this is why all our deliveries are 100% Carbon Neutral.”
They're also a B Corp which is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Aside from the greenery, they'll even let you know that status of your delivery with text updates to your mobile and they deliver faster than Auspost (we only use them where no other option exists).
This is not a blog, more a promo, but I’ve long since sent shame to the naughty corner. We think this is worth barking about, how many other courier companies are this impressive? That's why we chose them, that's why you'll love them.
