WHY IT MATTERS
Carbon footprints are based on many factors such as production facilities, location, energy system used, distance traveled, etc. The numbers provided here can be considered as a guideline to give context and to provide a perspective on the carbon footprint of everyday products. How we calculate your offset emissions for this social impact: According to the USDA data (2022) a moderate to liberal grocery budget for a family of four, you can plan on paying an average of $300 a week or $1,200 per month on groceries. With carbon emissions of approximately 100grams of CO2 per dollar of Gross Merchandising Sales (also see Amazon Sustainability Report, 2021), your monthly CO2 would come to 120kg per month.
We work with BEF Foundation's knowledgeable staff to craft high-quality, verified carbon offset solutions that address climate challenges by restoring freshwater ecosystems and catalyzing a renewable energy future for all. Carbon Offsets are retired on your behalf and come from verified projects such as regenerative agriculture in South Dakota, garbage conversion to power in Xinyang (China) and forest conservation projects in Minnesota.
