Carbon Neutral Shipping With UPS! - Darn Good Yarn

Carbon Neutral Shipping With UPS!

Written by Kate Curry

Darn Good Yarn is partnering with UPS to offer carbon neutral shipping!

As of April 1st, 2022 DGY is working with UPS and their carbon neutral program. This program will cut down on our carbon emissions for all of our incoming and outgoing UPS shipments! By joining this program, DGY is helping support the reduction of CO2 emissions and lessen the impact that your yarn or clothes have on the earth.

The carbon neutral program at UPS also supports projects that help the environment, such as: reforestation, water treatment, methane/gas destruction, community volunteering, and research into green-energy options. Talk about being proactive!

What Does This Mean For You?

You will notice very little, to no change in the delivery of your packages!

When you shop with us, if UPS is the option for your package, your package will be shipped in a more mindful manner. To do this, they are working to optimize their network, facilities, route, and delivery optimization. We’re working smarter, not harder!

With your packages also arriving in recyclable or biodegradable packaging, we are one step closer to being carbon neutral!
