Good Clean Love: Almost Naked (Personal Lubricant)

World’s First Carbon Neutral Personal Lubricant

We are proud to share our latest collaboration and addition to the Carbon Neutral Checkout® family of consumer goods with fellow B-Corp, Good Clean Love, and their Almost Naked organic personal lubricant.

 

Good Clean Love’s brand is built on the best science, the best ingredients and an ethos of, well, love. Their products are made from organic ingredients, formulated to promote sexual health and wellbeing, and to bring partners closer together.

 

Now, every bottle of Almost Naked you purchase will also be carbon neutral, meaning that it’s both good for you, and leaves no environmental damage.

Description

Evidence that climate change and a warming climate negatively effect human health is constantly growing. Whether we often think of it or not, sexual health is every bit as implicated as all other health factors. In our partnership with Good Clean Love, we seek to make this link, dare we say, explicit. We teamed up with Good Clean Love to offer the world’s first carbon neutral personal lubricant.

How Can A Personal Lubricant Be Carbon Neutral?

CCC conducted a Life Cycle Assessment from ‘Cradle-to-Gate’ to measure the greenhouse gas emissions associated with every bottle. We looked at GHG emissions produced by extracting raw materials, processing of raw materials, energy use in manufacture. We also considered product inputs like packaging, and final distribution to warehousing.

Now, every time you buy a bottle of Almost Naked you’ll also mitigate the carbon emissions of the entire bottle. We are offsetting Almost Naked’s emissions through our GEC Organics carbon offset project in Castleberry, Alabama. The project takes dead soil and adds a proprietary mixture of chicken litter and microbes. The mixture brings the soil back to life in the form of a rich organic fertilizer. This revitalized, healthy soil sequesters carbon dioxide, and the substitution of organic compost for synthetic fertilizers further avoids greenhouse gas emissions. The carbon revenues from each bottle of Almost Naked will be aggregated quarterly and invested into GEC’s operation to fund the exact amount of emissions reductions needed to offset the emissions from that period.

More About Good Clean Love

We are proud to partner with Good Clean Love to offer another “world’s first,” however, we have more in common than a bottle of aloe. Both Carbon Credit Capital and Good Clean Love are woman-owned. Both are certified B-Corporations, members of the Green America Green Business Network, and companies working to make the world a better place for the people we employ, the communities we serve, the products we produce, and of course the environment in which we produce and use them. 

Good Clean Love’s mission is to make love more sustainable. They are already doing a great job by being an exemplary steward of the environment in their procurement. CCC is here to help “take them all the way.”

Additional Information

We curate our portfolio of carefully selected carbon offset projects spread across the globe to not only offer the most highly scrutinized, thoroughly verified offsets, but also to do the most good to the local communities in which each project is implemented. Whether a project provides financial benefits to local communities who gain full employment through our forestry project in Brazil; or providing free renewable energy to impoverished farmers in China, you can be sure to find credits that do more than just mitigate carbon emissions, but that also provide better lives to people who deserve it most.

 

Carbon Credit Capital will only consider a carbon offset project if it clearly meets the following requirements:

  • Real: an offset must represent real emissions reductions that have already occurred (i.e. the reduction is not projected to occur in the future)
  • Additional: an offset must represent emission reductions that are in addition to what would have occurred otherwise in a business-as-usual scenario
  • Permanent: an offset must represent emission reductions that are non-reversible or must be sequestered for 100-years or more
  • Verifiable: sufficient data quantity and quality must be available to ensure emission reductions can be verified by an independent third party auditor (verifier) in accordance with an established protocol
  • Quantifiable: emission reductions represented by offsets must be reliably measured or estimated, and must be capable of being quantified
  • Enforceable: offset ownership is undisputed and enforcement mechanisms exist to ensure that all program rules are followed

Upon Purchase

You will obtain a certificate and a receipt of your purchase. You will become a member of our Carbon Credit Club automatically. The Credit Club aims to get more people moving towards to a low-carbon society and gives you recognition for doing so.

We will retire (remove from circulation) the voluntary credits that you purchase in your name. You will get a notification of the carbon credit retirement from us at the end of the financial quarter, which serves as proof of the transaction.
