Carbon footprints

Carbon (CO2) is a by-product produced by anything we do. Everybody leaves a carbon footprint and because its invisible most people don’t even know it. Something as simple as driving to the gym, doing a workout and having a hot shower uses three separate energy systems, all of which have different ways of producing CO2.

A growing reality...

For the most part CO2 production is just a reality of living and breathing. Problem is, surplus CO2 production over the past 40 years is having some very real and visible consequences on our environment - think rising temperatures, sea levels and frequency of natural events.

These are all a result of excess CO2 building up in our atmosphere and warming our planet. This is why carbon dioxide reduction has become such a contentious environmental issue.

From production to processing to packaging - most business'  carbon footprint is much larger than any one individual's, and until rececntly has been largely unaccounted for. 

So, what have we at Go Good done about it?

Carbon offsetting

Carbon offsetting seeks to reduce the amount of negative carbon impact a business creates by directly measuring it against positive practices that reduce carbon - think of it like a CO2 see-saw.

Trees are natural carbon eaters - living, breathing filters for our environment and extremely effective in reducing C02 levels in our atmosphere. An oppourtunity to partner with New Zealand protective planting projects allows us to directly reduce our carbon footprint while supporting environmental issues specific to our industry.

For each canister we sell, we donate $1 to Trees That Count.

Carbon offsets
are just the beginning...

We consider our footprint in everything we do and we aim at shrinking our environmental impact at every stage of our value chain. We've highlighted some of the ways we work to reduce our emissions directly. From grass to glass, it's a challenge of producing less waste and endorsing more efficient operations.

Agriculture

Choosing value driven suppliers who share in our sustainability standards

Cultivation

Utilising organic cultivation processes that encourage biodiversity and preserve the environment

Processing

Employing centralised ergonomic manufacturing and efficiency of scale

Packaging

Upcycling recycled paper and materials made from post consumer waste

Distribution

Rightsizing our direct to consumer packaging and utilising lower emission courier companies

Consumption

Shelf stable long life products that promote maximum use and minimal waste
