 Wildlife Works Partnership & Captured CO2 Innovation Project

We have teamed up with Wildlife Works to fully offset our travel and electricity usage through the Mai Ndombe REDD+ project based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

 

This project protects over 740,000 acres of the world’s second-largest intact rainforest and is home to an array of biodiversity, including endangered forest elephants. The rainforest also helps to regulate the planets temperatures and helps to clean our air.

In our efforts to become completely carbon neutral, we have started by offsetting all of our travel and the energy we use for the production of our bags. To minimise the impact of this we are offsetting 113 tonnes of CO2 by buying carbon credits from the Mai Ndombe project.

 

Your purchase of any GROUNDTRUTH product directly supports this vital project. With our partnership with Oco, we are embedding captured CO2 emissions into our products - making every GROUNDTRUTH design a carbon sink. A groundbreaking first - opening new routes to a brighter future.
