Shopping online has many advantages in terms of convenience and availability, not to mention price. However, it does have a greater impact on the environment in terms of packaging and individual distribution, thereby increasing the overall carbon footprint and impact on our planet.
“CarbonClix launched the Clix Store in order to help combat the impact of convenience, without members needing to change their current shopping habits,” say Charlotte Carlsen Abraham, CarbonClix co-Founder. Whether members are existing Amazon users or not, they can access all Amazon and Amazon Marketplace products through the Clix Store.
“An Apple iPad 3 for example has a lifecycle carbon footprint of 170kg CO2 and delivery is likely to be about the same again including the packaging and distribution,” says Stephen Abraham, CarbonClix co-Founder, “purchasing any item through the Clix Store rather than directly from Amazon allows us to use the small commission we get to offset the purchase and delivery, meaning the shopper has a positive impact on the environment at no extra cost.”
For more information on how to reduce your overall carbon footprint please visit the CarbonClix website.
CarbonClix, owned by Tramp Carbon, specialises in providing members with the opportunity to not only calculate their carbon emissions, but also receive advice on how to reduce their individual carbon footprints and save money at the same time. Many emissions however, cannot be eliminated or reduced and this is where members can choose to offset the rest through our carefully selected projects.
