We are evaluating our footprint from 2020 and are taking steps to reduce it now. The first big one is to switch to PSE’s Green Power Program. Our new studio and shop will be renewably powered by wind (58%), solar (36%), biogas (4%), geothermal (1%) and landfill gas (1%). Our vision for the future is to be able to make more than we take and contribute back to the grid.
The second step we took is to become a Climate Neutral Committed Brand. This means that we are part of a 150+ and growing community of businesses that annually commit to measure, reduce and offset our entire carbon footprint through the purchase of third-party certified carbon offsets.
If you are curious to learn more about your own footprint, you can calculate yours here. To offset your footprint, look for certified organizations to make sure you are funding reputable projects.
As parents of preschoolers who will be in their 30’s by 2050, it is our work to remain hopeful and action-oriented even in the face of daunting challenges. We are using what we gleaned this past year to keep on our slow and steady path.
Thank you to everyone who continues to support our work for your patience, kindness and generosity.
