The world needs more Climate Heroes. Some people fear that addressing climate change is too complicated and that one person can’t make a difference. Tradewater and our community of Climate Heroes believe the opposite.
Offsetting Office of Modern Composition’s carbon footprint through Tradewater felt incredible the first time I did it. As the organization’s founder and operator, I can say that of all the bills we pay, that one is my favorite. It’s a relief to know that the impacts our business’s actions have on the climate can be mitigated through participation in the Carbon Neutral Collective.
Water usage is a data input that you’ll report when you calculate your business’s carbon footprint. For this reason, your ability to reduce the number of gallons of water your business uses yearly will support lowering your overall emissions.
Small businesses looking to take climate action now have a database connecting them with solutions for clean energy, carbon neutral shipping, sustainable office supplies, food waste solutions, and more.
One ‘bright’ but often overlooked emissions factor for small businesses is lighting. Changing the light fixtures your business uses is a simple but impactful way to reduce costs and your carbon footprint.
As a business we have a commitment to keep up with ways to reduce our carbon footprint. When we learned about the opportunity with Tradewater to actually do an in-depth analysis of our business to offset our emissions on an annual basis we jumped all over it. I truly believe there are a lot of companies out there like us who want to do something but don’t know where to start and this is a tangible way to get involved and make a difference.
