Sendle Allows You to Share the Love Sustainably!

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.

You can connect with Sendle via Facebook and Twitter.

    I am still unsure of whether my stuff should go there or a thrift shop. Because too many things at thrift stores go unsold and clothes are made into dishrags, but at least low income customers pick from the things. Do the proceeds from TuShare go to good causes? Is TuShare more generous to good causes than charities with thrift shops?

    Hi Jacqueline! Thanks so much for reading Kindness by Design 🙂

    Regarding TuShare, their CEO James Moody says “TuShare is a BCorp, which means that we align our business model with our purpose to reduce landfill. All the profit currently goes back into building reuse infrastructure”. You can check out their BCorp certification here >> http://www.bcorporation.net/community/tushare

    They're also currently exploring how they can work more with charities that align with their core values.With Sendle they're also looking to provide logistics services to charities. I hope all that helps Jacqueline 🙂
