We recognize that building beautiful things can have a negative impact on the environment. That's why we're serious about offsetting our impact on the climate and our local landfills. To achieve this goal, we do the following:
- Everything we build is designed twice - once to arrive at a look and feel, and a second time to minimize waste in the manufacturing process. This is no easy task, but we make the extra effort because it's worth it.
- As a company, we purchase REDD+ carbon units on a recurring monthly basis. Currently, we are offsetting 9 tons of carbon and planting 18 trees each month.
- For each large purchase over $1000, we buy additional REDD+ carbon units to offset an additional ton of carbon and plant two trees.
Carbon offset programs are not perfect and we recognize that participating in these programs doesn't give us license to be wasteful. However, by participating at a level well beyond what's required by our footprint, and by taking daily steps to reduce our shop waste, we feel we're doing our part to make Studio Metric the greenest company we can be.
