As a fully remote software company, we realize it's much easier for us to neutralize our environmental impact than most other organizations. While we've been able to offset 100% of the carbon emissions that we generate every year since 2017, there are so many other things we can do every day to make an even bigger impact both as a company and individually.
Here's the environmental path we've taken so far, some of the things we've started to do, and our long-term goals and how we hope to achieve them.
Small lifestyle changes can have a huge cumulative impact in protecting our environment. From encouraging a switch to renewable electricity providers and providing a "green products" stipend, to subsidizing TerraCycle™ boxes for our homes and coworking spaces, we're always looking for new ways to encourage local action.
Each one might seem like a drop in the bucket, but they all contribute and can catalyze bigger actions or others to do the same things. Friends can see how easy it is to switch to renewables or that options exist to recycle snack bags and toddler pouches.
