Giving Back & Economic Impact
Off The Wagon believes in giving back to our local community and supporting local, state and worldwide conservation efforts. Here are some of the ways we give back.
TREES PLANTED = BOXES SENT
Each year we donate to Plant With Purpose - Plant a tree fund.
For Each dollar we donate, one tree is planted. We donate money to plant enough trees to cover the # of packages we send in a year (and then some).
We reuse packaging materials from our incoming packages. For example if you find plastic packaging materials inside your shipment that is because we reused this packaging.
Packing materials we use are made from cornstarch. (Unless we are reusing packing materials we received from our vendors).
DOUBLING OUR CONTRIBUTIONS:
We are using "Offset" app by Shopify that offsets the carbon impact of your shipment. So, yes, we are doubling our give back to the environment by planting trees and using "Offset".
Offset gives as follows... "Your contributions are currently funding the Jarí Para Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon Rainforest.
