SHOP CARBON NEUTRAL WITH ASCENT OUTDOORS + ECOCART
Ascent Outdoors is now partnering with EcoCart to give you the ability to make your orders from our gear shop 100% carbon neutral by offsetting your carbon footprint!
Being human means releasing planet-warming carbon emissions into the atmosphere. It happens when we take a shower, charge our phones, or let out a yawn after a long day. Every day in the U.S. alone, e-commerce packages travel about the same distance as going to the moon and back...133,000 times. And it’s not just getting your order to your doorstep we have to worry about - our entire supply chain carries a hefty carbon footprint.
As Ascent Outdoors continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward our values in order to maximize the positive impact of our business. That’s why with every item that ships from our online shop, you can now offset the carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact. That means the emissions from manufacturing and shipping your favorite outdoor gear and apparel from Ascent Outdoors can be made 100% carbon neutral!
EcoCart bases their carbon offsets on the shipping method and distance our products take to get to you, allows you to opt in to purchase a carbon offset, and then sends your contribution to a certified environmental initiative to fight climate change. Join us and opt in!
Our current carbon offsets are funding Global Forestry Projects. This curated portfolio contains a variety of forestry-based carbon offset projects-from reforestation to protection and improved forest management. These projects take place all over the world in North America, Asia, Africa, and South America. You’ll be funding projects like McCloud River Conservation, Doe Mountain and Chestnut Mountain forest Management, Afognak Forest Conservation, Acre Amazon Rainforest Protection, Great Bear Rainforest in Canada, Mai Ndombe Forest Protection in DRC, Gola Rainforest Protection in Sierra Leone, and many more valuable and impactful projects.
This project is certified by Vera - Verified Carbon Standard.
