About Simpleswitch.org

I grew up with the natural world as my playground, with a grandmother who pulled over to pick up litter, and a mom who recycled before it was cool. I have had the opportunity to travel from a young age and was exposed to the impacts of systems of poverty in a way I've never forgotten. For me, creating systems that serve people and the planet was always going to be part of my career. When I started trying to make it a part of my shopping habits, too, I realized how difficult and confusing that can be, and I decided the average American shopper needed a simple option for conscious and sustainable shopping.

01 Measure

Simpleswitch.org measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

02 Offset

Simpleswitch.org invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Simpleswitch.org to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

03 Reduce

Simpleswitch.org is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.
