Good Clean Love Ups Sustainability Commitments, Unveils World’s First Carbon Neutral Personal Lubricant
In honor of Earth Day 2018, and “Earth Month,” Carbon Credit Capital (“CCC”) is proud to announce the newest member of the Carbon Neutral Checkout program: Intimacy products manufacturer, Good Clean Love. Good Clean Love and CCC entered into partnership back in February.
Today we’re rolling out Good Clean Love’s flagship product, Almost Naked organic personal lubricant, as the world’s first carbon neutral personal lubricant. Good Clean Love will now donate funds for every lubricant bottle purchased to a project that reduces greenhouse gases by an amount equivalent to that bottle’s carbon footprint. The initiative will neutralize the product’s environmental impact and simultaneously serve as a role model for smaller companies seeking to mitigate their effect on climate change.
Good Clean Love partnered with CCC to measure the greenhouse gas emissions generated by its Almost Naked product. We calculated emissions from raw materials through manufacturing, processing, packaging, warehousing and shipping, and calculate a per-unit price for those emissions. We then helped the Good Clean Love select GEC Organics Waste Composting Project. GEC’s operations reduce fertilizer, and land-use change-related carbon emissions by converting chicken manure, food waste and green waste into organic soil that can reduce or replace fertilizer in agriculture applications.
GEC is one of only three U.S.-based carbon offset projects to achieve Gold Standard project verification, one of the highest such standards in the world. The standard ensures that carbon credits are real, verifiable and capable of making measurable contributions to sustainable development worldwide.
Leading the Way for Smaller Companies Committed to Combatting Climate Change
“This initiative is the next logical step in our commitment to maintaining ethical business practices that benefit our customers as well as the planet,” said Good Clean Love CEO Wendy Strgar. “We previously established our credentials in this area by our safe product formulations, our green packaging, and our PETA-endorsed product testing. Our new carbon-neutral program extends those efforts by taking responsibility for the carbon emissions generated in producing and shipping our lubricant.”
“Small and mid-sized companies account for about 80% of global greenhouse gas emissions. That means these companies can have a greater cumulative climate impact than the largest emitters in the world if they sign on to carbon offset programs in large numbers,” said Reed Shapiro, Director, Business Development, Carbon Credit Capital. “Good Clean Love’s decision to participate in the carbon offset movement sets a strong example that can help encourage other SMBs to become climate activists by going carbon-neutral.”
We are thrilled to be in partnership with Good Clean Love, and look forward to advancing our work together.
