Etsy has offset all its shipping emissions, becoming the first global e-commerce to do so. The initial plan was to offer offsets as an option for customers. Then they learned that offsets would cost just one cent per package, which made Etsy offset all its shipping emissions. Every package ordered will lead to Etsy buying verified emissions reductions, like protecting forests and sponsoring wind and solar farms.
Amazon plans to do the same but aims only to compensate half of its shipments by 2030. Etsy showed it can already be done today!
