Beth’s is committed to leaving this earth better than it was when we arrived. In that spirit, we’ve taken a few steps to reduce our emissions and be as sustainable as possible. As we grow, we’ll continue to make business decisions that will positively impact our local community, the environment, and the world at large.
The steps we’ve taken thus far include:
- Fully sustainable shipping materials, including using recycled paper padding, wadding and boxes. When needed for safely transporting breakable items we may use plastic bubble wrap that is recyclable.
- Some of our products are made from recycled materials and in many cases are FSC certified.
- Lastly, all our shipments are fully carbon neutral – including removing atmospheric carbon, storing carbon for 1000+ years, and using solutions like ocean-based removal and direct air capture.
We clean up after ourselves.
Ecommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.
Together, participating businesses have…
- Removed more than thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere
- Provided carbon-neutral shipping for more than millions of orders
Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to 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 however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.
Let's meet a few of the companies removing 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.
