Minga now ships carbon neutral!
We have partnered with UPS to make our shipments carbon neutral. From ups.com:
Our carbon neutral option offers you an opportunity to partner with us to reduce the CO2 impact of your shipping. For a small fee per package, customers can contribute to projects like Garcia River Forestry in the United States, Fujian Landfill Gas in China, La Pradera Landfill Gas in Colombia, and Cholburi Wastewater Biogas-to-Energy in Thailand. We take care of everything, from calculating the emissions to purchasing and retiring the carbon offsets.
When you select our carbon neutral option at the time of shipping, UPS will match the number of offsets purchased through 2011 up to a total of $1 million. Because we have customers around the globe, our goal is to contribute to quality projects worldwide.
We really love the earth and try to be as resourceful as possible here at Minga Fair Trade Imports. We recycle and reuse all shipping materials for our orders; so let us know if you have extra boxes or bubble wrap.
Each of these practices may seem small or insignificant, but working together we can all make a difference. We encourage you to explore ways in which you can reduce your carbon footprint too
