Did you know that 37 million parcels are sent from person to person each year in Australia?
I certainly didn’t!
That is until I received a pot of dirt delivered directly to my door. No it wasn’t a random prank, it was a sustainable gift from the folks at Sendle. Upon opening the card I found some rosemary seeds for me to plant in my new terracotta pot (apparently rosemary is a big favourite of Australian bees).
Sendle is Australia’s first fully certified carbon-neutral delivery service and the certified technology B Corporation.
The pot of dirt I received actually represents the 3kg of carbon that Sendle offsets for every package sent. It’s also the amount of carbon released when a package travels by road from Brisbane to Perth! Sendle is working with the folks at Climate Friendly to support projects to offset 100% of their delivery emissions.
