The Defining Issue of our Time
Being human means releasing planet-warming carbon emissions into the atmosphere. It happens when we take a shower, charge our phones, or let out a yawn after a long day. Just like humans release carbon pollution, so do businesses - and Fans' Favourite is no exception.
We’re on a Mission
As Fans' Favourite continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward our values in order to maximise the positive impact of our retro football scarves. We have long held the conviction that we can be both a great business and a great corporate citizen. In fact, we believe we cannot be one without the other.
Corporate social responsibility is cemented in our DNA because we believe deeply in making the world a better place.
What Fans' Favourite is Doing
The climate crisis is massive, complicated, and overwhelming. So, it’s often hard to know what we can do about our carbon footprint.
Starting today, we’re taking a stand and doing something about it. We’re partnering with EcoCart to empower the Fans' Favourite community to make your orders 100% carbon neutral.
For every one of our retro football scarves that is ordered, you can now offset the specific carbon footprint with a positive environmental impact! This means the full carbon emissions from producing, manufacturing, and shipping your favourite football scarves to your door would be completely neutralised.
Now you can rest easy knowing that shopping with us means making a positive impact on the planet.
So now you’ll know when a Fans' Favourite scarf arrives at your door, you’ll get something you love and you’ll be proud of the fact that you’re taking a small step towards making a big change in the world.
What does it mean to offset emissions?
It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of manufacturing and shipping items at Fans' Favourite, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.
How does it work?
Now, each time someone checks the carbon neutral box in their cart, we will automatically purchase verified emissions reductions, more commonly known as “offsets” through our friends at EcoCart. These purchases support environmental projects, like wind and solar farms that create clean energy, or protecting trees that would otherwise be cut down so that they can continue to absorb carbon from the air. On top of it, we make sure that these projects are doing some extra good like protecting animals or supporting underserved communities.
Why is this important?
Fans' Favourite has always been conscious of our impact and actively worked to lighten our carbon footprint. From this year, we are using eco-friendly mailing bags that are 100% recyclable. None of our football scarves will arrive within plastic packaging. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place.
What do you mean carbon neutral?
When we say your orders will be “carbon neutral” (“net zero” is another term you’ll hear), that means that we will eliminate, capture, or otherwise mitigate all of the carbon emissions created from making Fans' Favourite scarves and shipping them to your door.
We’ll even give you information about the project your specific donation is supporting, so you know your money is going to the right place.
If we all do our part by changing our daily habits and making sustainable swaps, supporting companies that care about their impact on the Earth, and advocate for the future we deserve, we can effect real change in the world.
