After working hard to make our packaging 100% recyclable and being on the journey for B Corp status; we know there’s more we can do to protect and heal our planet.
We have found the world of environmental responsibility a big scary grey area with no accurate route of really determining our carbon footprint and what the best option forward for Kabuto is. We do however, have the desire that we want to make an immediate and positive difference, free of green washing and behaving as honourably and truthfully as the Samurai that inspire us.
After exploring many different ways to positively impact our environment, we have decided to work with Ecologi, a carbon offsetting subscription service to offset the carbon our employees generate. Ecologi work on impactful climate solutions around the world – and plant us a cool Kabuto forest! As the famous Chinese proverb says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
We are taking this philosophical guidance quite literally.
We have calculated that planting 228 trees a month through Ecologi offsets our employees carbon; reducing 16.8 tonnes of CO2 a month. For a small business this is big news – and we are proud of it!
Watch our forest grow over the coming months and keep an eye out for other positive climate actions we are taking. We might be small but we are mighty passionate when it comes to taking account of our responsibility to protect and heal our planet. We cannot wait to share more of our journey with you!
