Now that we're officially in Earth Month, we're interested in seeing how we can improve our shopping habits with an eco-conscious lens.
Etsy recently announced that it will be focusing on a couple of goals. First off, the company will "now offset 100% of carbon emissions from packaging." The company says that when you buy something on the site, the Etsy team is measuring "the carbon emissions released into the atmosphere as a result of shipping that item." It then invests in "projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount" — such as efforts to protect trees.
The recent development means that the company will also track carbon emissions from packaging. Etsy also plans to share knowledge with sellers about eco-conscious packaging and best practices.
In addition, the company has pledged to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030. Check out some of the site's top eco-conscious picks below — along with some of our wish list items.
