1. If you operate a Shopify store, we'll probably be talking to you. Maybe this week, maybe in the next few weeks, but soon. Our Shopify plugin makes it incredibly easy for your business to offer carbon-neutral shipping to your customers. They'll love it. You'll love it. You don't have to wait to hear from us; go ahead and email us now.
  2. You may also see us in person before long. We're putting together plans to attend some sustainability-focused conferences in the coming weeks and months. If you know of one that we just shouldn't miss, please let us know.
  3. We're making progress on buying Renewable Energy Credits and carbon offsets. It's time-consuming because there's no central marketplace, no equivalent of the New York Stock Exchange or Chicago Board of Trade. Utilities and individual renewable energy producers, among others, offer RECs and offsets. Stay tuned; we'll keep you informed as we build our portfolio.
  4. We’re developing a Slack app that anyone using Slack can easily install. The app adds a “/green” command that will allow you to purchase carbon offsets directly inside Slack. For example, if your commute to work is 20 miles in Atlanta, you could type in “/green my 20 mile commute,” and Cloverly would purchase RECs from a local solar facility (for example). Best of all, Slack will respond to your request with a map of the exact facility where the offset or credits were produced.
