At LN Knits, we strive to take responsibility every step of the way, from choosing natural fibers, to offering ‘care’ products to reduce the environmental impact in the user phase and take responsibility all the way to the end of the product’s operational life.
We believe that it is very important to look at every aspect of what we are doing and to assess if there is a better way of doing it. Therefore, our environmental work is in a constant state of development, where we always try to find better alternatives. That's why we take steps towards eco-friendly shipping from Peru.
At the moment, 99% of our knitwear is shipped by plane.
Together with our main supplier Solid, We will compensate these emissions through carbon offsetting:
Step 1: Solid calculates the emissions of our shipping, based on weight, distance and mode of transport.
Step 2: Together with Wildlife Works, a certified climate project taking actions to reduce CO2 emissions, Solid calculate the price needed to compensate for the amount of emissions our shipping caused.
Step 3: We pay this amount for carbon credits from Wildlife Works equal to the emissions our shipping caused, making our shipping carbon neutral.
With our last contribution 3,09 ha of dryland forest can be protected from degradation and deforestation.
Nula Carbon has also donated on behalf of LN Knits to the Leaf Charity's new campaign in Gabon. This campaign is raising money to help two communities protect and restore their ancestral forests. You can find out more about the project here (https://www.theleafcharity.com/gabon).
We will keep doing our very best to improve every step of the way.
