Every order placed with us at BetterWorldBooks.com offers a Carbon Balanced Shipping option.
Carbon dioxide emissions contribute to global warming, planes, trains, and trucks that deliver online purchases are no exception. Carbon Balanced Shipping is a way that BWB may "offset" these emissions through the purchase of third-party verified Carbon Offsets and Renewable Energy Certificates. It costs only a few pennies per book, but when thousands of people purchase these offsets and certificates, the total grows each and every day!
BWB worked with Sustainable Business Consulting and followed the World Resources Institute framework to develop the methodology used to calculate BWB's carbon inventory and to estimate an average offset needed for packages. One hundred (100%) of the funds collected for Carbon Balanced Shipping are used to purchase Carbon Offsets and Renewable Energy Certificates, and to fund other environmental initiatives. BWB appreciates its customers and their commitment to sustainability and the environment. You help make a difference every day!
If you prefer not to make this type of contribution, we understand, you may simply uncheck the box under your Order Summary and proceed to checkout. Change your mind? No worries, this option will be available during each shopping session and can be selected for future orders.
