Offset your Carbon Footprint when Shopping Online
Posted on November 05 2019
Every time you make a purchase on our website, you have the opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint by adding a small donation to your order with Carbon Checkout. For every $1 dollar contributed, Carbon Checkout offsets 245 pounds of global greenhouse gas emissions that would have otherwise been released into the atmosphere. So far, just over 3% of Miik customers opt to offset their carbon footprint at checkout. We would love to see this number increase!
Introducing Carbon Checkout
Carbon offsetting funds different projects around the world that help reduce our carbon emissions significantly. Without additional funding from people like you and me, these vital projects can’t be completed. In addition to individually reducing our own carbon footprints, funding these projects helps to create a brighter, greener future. That’s what offsetting is all about.
How to support carbon offset programs on your next Miik purchase
It’s just three simple steps!
1. Check the box next to “Give change to the environment.” It’s at the bottom of the screen during the checkout process. You can round up to the nearest dollar based on your order total, or select a different number from the dropdown menu.
2. Your funds are invested in renewable energy projects to reduce carbon emissions.
3. Track your emission reductions and view your portfolio by entering your verification code on the Carbon Checkout website.
That’s it! Three easy steps and a very worthy cause: the future of our planet. These small changes in our everyday buying habits lead to big change. Collectively, a dollar can go a long way.
Leading up to Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Holidays, we would like to remind you to be mindful in the way you purchase items and gifts, and encourage you to opt-in to offset your carbon footprint when it’s offered. We only have one planet, and we’re all responsible to take care of it!
To a greener future,
Your Miik Team
