At Less, we recognize that offsetting is an imperfect solution to the complex issue of climate change. Along with environmental groups like WWF, we stress that offsetting should be a last resort only. When reducing your environmental impact, Less advises a three-step approach:
Reduce, conserve and be more efficient.
For those products and services you use, switch to green, more environmentally friendly alternatives. When it comes to your energy needs, Less' parent company, Bullfrog Power, offers easy, affordable ways to choose green electricity, green natural gas and now green transportation fuel.
For those emissions you can't reduce or eliminate — your air travel-related emissions — count on Less to offset them. For more on The Less Approach, click here.
Shipping causes approximately 3.1% of the world's carbon emissions. With Less Emissions, you can still send your customers the goods they want and need — without increasing your carbon footprint.
By offsetting your company's shipping, you'll support quality emissions reduction projects and show your customers that you're doing the right thing for the planet.
