Why It’s Important
Multiple LCA's (life-cycle analysis) have found that producing recycled-PET generates substantially less carbon emissions than its virgin counterpart. Climate scientists agree that reducing carbon emissions is our single most important objective to reduce catastrophic climate change.
An estimated 14 billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean annually, 80 percent of which is a form of plastic that is killing marine life and damaging delicate ecosystems. Since plastics are indestructible, it’s vital that we find ways to reuse them — so we’re giving that plastic bottle a second life while substantially reducing carbon emissions.
It’s not enough to operate as sustainably as possible, so Wolven also invest in programs that offset the emissions they’ve created. To address their carbon footprint they’ve partnered with Climate Neutral. This means measuring their greenhouse gas emissions footprint, purchasing carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions moving forward.
This means your Wolvens are carbon–neutral (yay!). These carbon credits support a range of projects such as rainforest conservation and landfill methane-capture.
Rest assured that they’re doing everything they can to deliver a product with the lowest possible impact.
