Enjoy Carbon Neutral Delivery On All Orders From The Tap Specialist

The Tap Specialist is proud to announce we now offer carbon neutral shipping on all orders, powered by Shopify's Planet app.

You can discover the full credentials and details of Planet here, and we've shared a quick summary in our post below.

In order to avoid the worst of climate change and keep global temperatures from rising, 1,000,000,000 tonnes of CO2 in the atmosphere needs to be removed annually. Additionally, the world also needs to achieve net-zero emissions. All of this needs to be achieved by the year 2050. One action that consumers and businesses can take is to support innovators of earth-saving technology like the Planet App.

Companies like the Planet App, are tackling the carbon emissions problem from all fronts. These solutions are scalable, however, they need financial backing to grow and speed up their efforts.

The Planet app is a means for both merchants, like The Tap Specialist, and consumers like you, to conduct business, and purchase products, as usual while saving the environment. One of the most impactful changes that a business owner can make is to their shipping, something that accounts for nearly 3% of global carbon emissions.

How Does it Work?

Every time we take an order, Planet automatically calculates the estimated shipping/delivery emissions and we pay a fee to remove that carbon emission from the atmosphere.

Why Is This Different?

Unlike other sustainable commerce services, Planet focuses on carbon removal, rather than offsetting carbon with forest protection. To do this, it's parent company, Shopify, works with high-impact companies like Running Tide and Remora through the Shopify Sustainability Fund to make a real impact on our Earth.

“Planet empowers Shopify merchants to join the fight against climate change in such a meaningful way,” says Stacy Kauk, Shopify’s Head of Sustainability.

Not only can merchants like The Tap Specialist be agents of change by directly funding these companies and their eco-tech, but they can also showcase to you, our consumers, how we are taking responsibility and doing our part. Hopefully, this can set off a reaction where other merchants, brands and stores are influenced, and that carries all the way up to the large corporations that are causing the most damage.

Our Planet Earth, and The Tap Specialist thanks you for your support!
