Amount Of Carbon We Offset In May Topped 4 Million Pounds

We love this total: 4,221,028. That’s the number of pounds of carbon that Cloverly offset on behalf of its customers during May, primarily through greening the carbon costs of shipping for ecommerce transactions. (Click here for details on how that works.)

A man giving thumbs up.

Here’s what that amount of carbon emissions equates to, according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator:

  • A year’s worth of driving for 1,517 passenger vehicles (driving 17,420,089 miles)
  • A year’s worth of energy use for 810 homes
  • The amount of carbon sequestered by 9,168 acres of US forests in a year

The May figure was our second-highest monthly total ever. It more than doubled the 1,703,179 pounds offset during April and trailed only the 5,793,344 pounds offset during November 2019.

Of that November total, the business intelligence and data analytics platform Looker accounted for 4.8 million pounds. During its JOIN 2019 data conference, it used Cloverly to offset the carbon costs of attendees’ conference travel. You can find out more about that demo project, which Looker called “both fun and good,” by clicking here.

The increasing totals of carbon offset during the past three months reflect the growing importance of ecommerce during the COVID-19 pandemic. They also show that public concern about climate change and sustainability remains strong. In order to green their shipping with Cloverly, consumers in most cases have to opt in and pay extra. The fact that they did so is good news for the planet—and its people.
