Etsy is the first e-commerce platform to offset all of its shipping-generated carbon emissions. Both Etsy sellers and buyers will be spared the costs for this project. Instead, the company will work with 3Degrees to buy verified emissions reductions for every item purchased in order to compensate for the resulting emissions. 3Degrees uses this revenue to finance environmental projects. To get things started, Etsy will offset shipping emissions for the entire US e-commerce sector for a whole day.
