Earlier this year, we talked about our Clean Air achievements – today we’re pleased to share we now offer carbon neutral shipping!
As a small family-run business, our goal is to hand throw a great product, protect our employees and do our part in preserving the environment through green initiatives. Our customers appreciate our American-made quality and the conscious effort we make to be socially responsible for our actions. For us, it’s simply the right thing to do – especially when we interact directly with America’s national and state park systems, along with historical landmarks and museums across the country.
Environmental leadership starts with small steps that accumulatively make a larger impact – it’s why we partnered with UPS and their Carbon Neutral Shipping initiative. UPS ships millions of packages a day that can have a negative impact on the environment. Think about their brown trucks, air flights, miles and fuel; it all adds up.
To offset the impact on the environment, they created a program called UPS Carbon Neutral. It allows Sunset Hill Stoneware to financially contribute to their program to offset the climate impact of our shipments. In turn, UPS takes our contribution, combines it with others and works with globally recognized certification and validation groups to reduce fuel use, conserve energy, recycle and operate responsibly.
It’s how SHS is making small changes to make a big difference. We hope you do the same.
Until next time. Tom
