Pier32 Goes Carbon Neutral
We're starting off 2012 the right way. Pier32 is now officially certified as carbon neutral. All of our operational emissions for 2010 and 2011 have now been mitigated and offset. We've achieved this major milestone with the help of worldwide charity Childreach International. Working with a charity to get this done is important. There are plenty of scam merchants out there making a profit from our concerns about climate change. Through Childreach International, our contribution goes to directly help the people that need it most. Add that to the benefits in emissions reductions, and you can see why Childreach International was a good fit for us. Talking about fit, can we make a suggestion that could help slim down your promotional clothing budget? Buying in bulk might seem like an extravagance, but if you think about it in the same way that you'd look at your weekly shop then it makes more sense. A little planning ahead to make sure you have everything you need for the year, and getting it in one hit can save you quite a bit of cash. And it's cheaper and much more carbon-efficient to deliver one run of 2000 shirts than ten runs of 200. See, everybody wins! Of course, if you subscribed to the Pier32 newsletter, you'd know all this already. Have a look at what you're missing out on.
