The nappies you buy help save our planet!
We are excited to have partnered with Future Neutral to offset our customers' carbon footprint through your shopping! This goes beyond just the product you purchase, and actually goes towards a positive carbon offset to your yearly lifestyle. Future Neutral offers shoppers a one-click carbon offset at checkout option, however Monarch have chosen to make this contribution on your behalf! The team of experts at Future Neutral then takes care of the carbon offset.
If only 10% of Australians participated in a Future Neutral initiative with all their shopping, whilst it might seem like a small amount, we would actually be able to fund over $600 Million worth of carbon abatement programs per year! Small change for big difference.
As part of our commitment to Social and Environmental improvement, Monarch has chosen to cover this cost on behalf of our valued customers, so this sustainable initiative won't cost you a thing! Monarch will contribute a percentage of revenue to offsetting our collective carbon footprint!
What are Carbon Offsets?
Carbon offsets actually refer to the offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions, the most common of which is carbon dioxide. As such a carbon offset is used as a shorthand term to describe activities that remove (offset) CO2e from the atmosphere. Some of the most common examples include planting trees and switching to renewable energy sources.
Why do we need them?
The ‘greenhouse gases’ are needed for life on earth, they make the planet warm enough for us to live on, if they disappeared the climate on average would be about 33°C cooler!
The issue is that human activities are adding more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, in particular CO2 (carbon dioxide). This increase in concentration is correlated with increasing the global temperature - and if it gets too warm, that then becomes a bad thing... even a few degrees of warming causes huge changes that we are already seeing.
In particular, extreme weather, changing climates and positive feedback loops that accelerate even more warming. We are now facing a climate change emergency and the world’s average temperature has increased by 1.5 degrees from pre-industrial levels.
Carbon offsets are therefore really important to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Future Neutral supports a number of projects as directed by their team of experts and advisory council. These include United Nations certified projects, and locally a partnership with Australian non-profit Greenfleet.
