Climate Positive Mission
A Human Issue
Just by being human we release planet-warming carbon emissions into the atmosphere. It happens when we shower, use electricity, or let out a yawn after a long day. Just like humans release carbon, so do businesses - and Too Many Pjs is no exception.
Every day in the U.S. alone, online purchases travel about the same distance as going to the moon and back ...133,000 times. Online shopping has transformed retail. Unfortunately, it’s also impacting the environment, and not for the better. Having an order conveniently delivered to your doorstep is a major contributor to climate change.
We’re on a Mission
As Too Many Pjs continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward our values in order to maximize the positive impact of our products. At Too Many Pjs, we have long held the belief that we can be both a great business and a great global citizen. In fact, we believe we cannot be one without the other.
Social responsibility is at the core of Too Many Pj’s because we believe deeply in making the world a better place.
What Too Many Pjs is Doing About It
From now on, we’re taking a stand and doing something about it.
We’re one of the few e-commerce brands to offset 100% of our carbon emissions from shipping. This achievement is the result of an effort to measure our global footprint in accordance with international certification standards, coupled with efforts to reach carbon net zero..
For every one of our amazing eco friendly baby products that ships, we now balance it with a positive environmental impact thanks to our partner, EcoCart. The full environmental impact of getting your favorite Too Many Pjs products to your door is completely neutralized.
This initiative comes at no additional cost to our customers. It simply comes with the satisfaction of knowing that shopping at Too Many Pjs means positively impacting the planet.
We’re even going a step further by offering Climate Positive orders. This means when you checkout, you’ll have the ability to double the positive environmental impact by doubling the amount of carbon being offset, creating a net positive result.
So now you’ll know when a Too Many Pjs package arrives at your door, you’ll get something you love and you’ll be proud of the fact that you’re taking a small step towards making a big change in the world.
What does it mean to offset emissions?
It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of shipping items from Too Many Pjs, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.
How does it work?
Now, each time someone buys an item from Too Many Pjs, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart. These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
Why is this important?
Too Many Pjs has always been conscious of our impact and actively worked to lighten our carbon footprint. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.
What do you mean carbon neutral?
When we say we’ll be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions we create from shipping our products to your door.
What is climate positive and how is it different from carbon neutral?
Climate positive is a step beyond carbon neutral. Say a product emits 100 pounds of carbon on the journey to your door. Being carbon neutral means Too Many Pjs automatically offsets all 100 pounds of carbon. Climate positive means that when you check out, you’ll be able to offset an additional 100 pounds of carbon, bringing the grand total to 200 pounds of carbon being offset, creating a net positive impact.
Will this come at a cost to me?
Too Many Pjs is covering the cost of providing 100% carbon neutral orders, however, you do have the option to make your individual order climate positive at checkout. For only a small additional price you can double the positive impact by doubling the amount of carbon being offset!
Just the Beginning
At Too Many Pjs, we are committed to slowing the effects of climate change, one order at a time.
Carbon offsets are a starting point—an immediate way to reduce our impact. Even though this is a moment to celebrate, we think that it’d be even better if we didn’t emit any carbon in the first place. To achieve this, we’re working to develop projects in our own supply chain that will reduce our emissions directly.
The Power of Us
Our work isn’t done for another important reason. No matter how much progress we continue to make on our own footprint, Too Many Pj’s footprint is actually quite small. The effects of climate change are magnified far beyond Too Many Pjs itself.
The only way we can truly begin to reverse the effects of climate change is if everyone does their part. If we all do our part by changing our daily habits and making sustainable swaps, supporting companies that care about their impact on the Earth, and advocate for the future we deserve, we can effect real change in the world.
