Being a truly eco-conscious company goes beyond using sustainable fabrics, volunteering for local environmental groups, and donating to 1% for the Planet (though these are all initiatives we're proud of). We're taking it a step further by striving to be climate (or carbon) neutral by partnering with South Pole.
One of our resolutions this year is to be more conscious of our carbon footprint and take measures to lessen our carbon impact. We hope you'll join us in this endeavor. Take a look inside our process of determining our carbon footprint and how we partnered with South Pole and Cool Effect to offset our — and JOOB's — carbon emissions. And learn how to calculate your own carbon footprint!
