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. Just like humans release carbon pollution, so do businesses - and Drawn to Ecology is no exception.
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. A reminder that partnering with small business manufacturers close to our studio lowers this footprint a significant amount but it doesn't eliminate it completely.
The climate crisis is massive, complicated, and overwhelming. So, it’s often hard to know what we can do about our carbon footprint.
Enter in 100% Carbon Neutral Orders!
We’re partnering with EcoCart to easily make your order 100% Carbon Neutral. Here is an example of how easy it is to add this to your order!
For every one of our amazing items that ships, you can now offset the specific carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact! This means the full carbon emissions from producing, manufacturing, and shipping your favorite Drawn to Ecology products to your door would be completely neutralized.
Now you can rest easy knowing that
shopping at Drawn to Ecology
means making a positive impact on the planet.
When a Drawn to Ecology package arrives at your door, you’ll get something you love AND you’ll be helping make a small step towards our collective big change in the world. Being a part of the Drawn to Ecology Made with the Planet in Mind Promise!

What does it mean to offset emissions?
It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of manufacturing and shipping items at Drawn to Ecology, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.
How does it work?
Now, each time someone checks the carbon-neutral box at Drawn to Ecology, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart. These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
Why is it important?
Drawn to Ecology has always been conscious of our impact and actively worked to lighten our carbon footprint whether it be through using eco-friendly materials, like sustainably harvested papers, sustainable printing methods, to using recycled packaging. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.
What do you mean carbon neutral?
When we say your orders will be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from making Drawn to Ecology products and shipping them to your door.
We’ll even give you information about the project your specific donation is supporting, so you know your money is going to the right place.
