Carbon Neutral Order with EcoCart
EcoCart estimates the carbon footprint for each Green Ocean Co. order. They factor in product type, shipping weight, and distance to delivery location. By choosing to donate to EcoCart, your funds will be dedicated to the TONTOTON (TTT) Ocean Plastics Removal Project. This Vietnam-based organization collects and recycles traditionally non-recyclable plastics, to prevent them from entering the ocean.
From TONTOTON: "We convert a Ton of plastic litter into a Ton of neutralized plastic, therefore calling it the Ton To Ton Program. Neutralizing means funding ocean bound plastic collection and its treatment, equivalent to your plastic impact. This means you compensate for every ton of plastic you produce by ensuring there is one ton less in the ocean"
TTT collects and transfers orphan plastic (those that are not accepted by conventional recycling programs, due to low weight and value). These plastics are sent to a co-processing facility and used as energy for cement kilns. The remaining ash is used in cement production, as it can be used as a raw material. The co-processing facility monitors carbon emissions 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
