Rotterdam, the Netherlands & San Francisco, US - Helloprint, Europe’s leading online marketplace for printed products, has kickstarted its sustainability commitment by launching a strategic partnership with San Francisco based start-up EcoCart. Ecocart offers an e-commerce plugin for businesses that allow customers to offset their carbon emissions at the checkout with one click.
Our collaboration with EcoCart was an important strategic step to start promoting sustainability on our website says Lennaert Koch, CFO at Helloprint. We see that there is a big demand from digital consumers for more sustainability and that they are very eager to make a positive impact. Our collaboration with EcoCart has made it possible for us to be the first printing platform to offer offsetting not only for shipping emissions but also for the production and manufacturing of the product.
Helloprint is offering a wide range of products for offsetting on their website and is supporting a forest conservation and restoration project in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
Climate change mitigation is now a key focus across the globe. Given that today’s shopping behavior has switched dramatically towards online consumption, the opportunity of offsetting one’s carbon emissions at the checkout can play an important role in alleviating the risks of climate change. It is important that offsetting is not our only action to mitigate climate change, we need to continue working together with all stakeholders and set internal reduction strategies to make our impact future-proof. says Helloprint’s Sustainable Business Developer Megi Kass.
As a Forbes under 30 company, Ecocart is a very fast-growing start-up with over 1500 customers worldwide that have successfully offset over 11.000 tons of CO2 from their e-commerce purchases.
