Rising carbon dioxide is a significant and harmful contributor to climate change and negative environmental impact. CO2 is directly responsible for global warming that in turn affects our environment negatively in so many ways.
With the phenomenal increase in online deliveries due to the Covid pandemic, most people don't consider their online shopping deliveries' environmental impact; the logistics involved generating a considerable amount of CO2.
World resources institute says that transport emissions — which primarily involve road, rail, air and marine transportation — accounted for over 24% of global CO2 emissions in 2016.
Carbon neutral means the net release of CO2 into the atmosphere during the process is zero. This is achieved when the CO2 emitted is cancelled out by a process known as 'offsetting' with supporting projects that reduce emissions, such as regenerating rain forests, replacing old equipment with more efficient technology to reduce CO2 emissions and waste generation.
Consumers are becoming better informed and more aware of their chosen products' environmental impact and services. As per the Forbs article on environmental impact 92% of customers are more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues.
Sustainability with Uppercup & Sendle
We at Uppercup and 321 Water are super mindful of our impact on the environment from start to finish. We support our customers and partners with their zero waste journeys with reusable products that are both fashionable and practical.
Uppercup produces a range of stylish products that can make it desirable to reuse when it comes to your daily coffee (or three). Every time you opt to use a reusable takeaway coffee cup over a non-reusable coffee cup, you have chosen to minimise your waste product.
At Uppercup, we believe in zero waste living which embodies and captures what the circular economy is all about. Zero waste living forms an underlying framework for circular economic policies and makes opportunities for many economic and social benefits alongside the positive environmental impact.
Zero waste creates opportunities for communities to reduce expenses resulting from reduced waste produced, which can be reinvested into other public services that benefit communities.
We take every precaution to address the entire system of our operation and contribute to substantially reducing climate emissions by changing what and how much we use, what resources go into making it, to finally delivering it to you.
That's why we have chosen to partner with Sendle for our shipping and logistics. Sendle has a fantastic brand ethos that aligns perfectly well with our vision for a greener tomorrow, one sip at a time.
Sendle is Australia's first 100% carbon neutral delivery service and Australia's first tech B Corp.
Shipping that's good for the world
Every time you order one of our products, you can be guaranteed that we aim to keep your carbon footprint low by shipping carbon-neutral every time!
Every tonne of carbon dioxide Sendle releases into the air while delivering parcels can be cancelled by supporting projects that combat climate change.
Sendle adopts a process that calculates the highest amount of carbon that any given parcel send could generate and used this contribution to fund sustainability projects, offsetting the CO2 emissions created.
With Sendle as our sustainable logistics partner allows us to support real-world changing initiatives that protect, preserve, and regenerate natural ecosystems. By doing this, we ensure that all our deliveries have a net carbon footprint of zero.
Opting to 'offset the CO2 emissions with each of our parcels, we make sure your orders don't contribute to the rising global warming, which helps ease the burden on climate change.
Furthermore, we now ship in compostable satchels! Enjoy our guilt-free carbon neutral delivery Australia-wide!
