Each time you check out with Shop Pay, you contribute to the Shop community’s efforts to remove the carbon emissions from your order delivery.
Currently, we're partnered with WeForest to fund the restoration of 1,000 hectares of the Casamance mangroves. Mangroves are made up of trees and shrubs that can capture and store large amounts of carbon dioxide. This initiative will increase forest cover, boost fish stocks, and shellfish populations. It'll also create sustainable harvesting opportunities that will provide regular incomes to the local fishing communities in Senegal, Africa.
Over the next 30 years, the restored mangroves are expected to capture and store 219,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, offsetting the emissions produced by Shop Pay deliveries made in 2021 and 2022. You can view our daily impact in the Shop app. The Voluntary Carbon Standard and the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard will certify this initiative.
