Every purchase you make on Salvos is shipped carbon-neutral to your door for free. We also use eco friendly, plastic free packaging. Shipping times range from 2-10 days depending on the product.
We purchase carbon offsets for each order based on how much CO2 a shipment is projected into the environment.
Our carbon offsets are currently funding conservation of Jarí Para forest in the Amazon rainforest.
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0.
For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile and actions to preserve a forest removes 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same.
This is a Verified Carbon Standard certified project that will be verified by Pachama using their monitoring technology.
The charges from our carbon offsets go towards protecting the existing forest, improving the biomass through better forest management practices.
We currently do not offer shipping outside of the U.S. + Canada.
