We are thrilled to announce that all orders shipped via UPS from StandOut Stickers and Pure Buttons will be sent as UPS carbon neutral!
What is carbon neutral shipping? To put it simply, the "carbon cost" created by each delivery is calculated and offset by investments in renewable energy or carbon capture projects, rainforest preservation and more. CO2 emissions by carbon neutral UPS deliveries have been measured and reduced to "net zero" in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol. This protocol is certified by Natural Capital Partners and verified by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS).
We have opted to make this carbon neutral shipping option default for all UPS deliveries at no additional cost.
For now, only UPS offers a carbon neutral shipping option. When USPS offers this service you can bet that we'll offer it as well. For now, you can only get carbon neutral shipping by choosing one of the UPS shipping options at checkout.

Look for the 🌱 seedling emoji to denote a UPS carbon neutral shipping option in your cart and during checkout.
Important Update! 2022's numbers are in and we're thrilled to share. In 2022 StandOut Stickers and Pure Buttons customers have offset a combined 32.8 metric tons of CO2 through the UPS Carbon Neutral Program. Thank you! Stay tuned for 2023's numbers!
Note: the certificate above reads "Pure Buttons" because that is the name of our sister company who we share a UPS account with. The carbon neutral offset number represents the combined orders of Pure Buttons and StandOut Stickers customers UPS shipped orders.
