In line with the UN's Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action we invite industry + individuals to take restorative action.
Donate $2.10/garment to actively draw down the same carbon emitted during the production + shipping of your clothes + extra to be #carbonpositive
SEQUESTER YOUR CARBON VIA SOIL, SEAWEED + TREES
It can cost $20k to calculate the carbon footprint of an entire supply chain, and this can be a barrier so we figured that we can help fashion & garment makers plus their customers to easily take positive personal action & offset the carbon emitted from production + shipping: one garment at a time.
CARBON FARMING WITH SOIL
START DATE in December 2020.
Contact us for further information or to be notified when we start sequestering and taking donations to offset.
Estimated at $AUD 2.10 per garment*, 100% of your donations are distributed evenly to three key accredited carbon credit industries in Australia:
This movement is motivated by two of the United Nation's initiatives:
- the industry specific Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action and the global Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal 13 Climate Action to address the urgent need to draw down the existing carbon that is contributing to climate change and contributing to today's devastating environmental impact on both people and planet.
The term carbon neutral means that an activity releases net zero carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Climate positive means that an activity goes beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. From this term, we have named the movement #iamcarbonpositive
CARBON EMISSION CALCULATION
*Calculations are based on a pair of denim jeans. Denim is one of the most consumed and fashionable pieces of clothing in the world.
Support our fashion & garment industry champions who are taking steps to change the industry. Donate an extra $2.10 at point of purchase then share your positive news #iamcarbonpositive.
1. Count how many garments you own
2. Calculate & donate directly to ......to offset the carbon - approx aud$2/garment is enough to be #carbonpositive and is tax deductible
3. share your commitment to climate action and take the #positivefashion CHALLENGE to plant and protect biodiverse native forests in Australia and New Zealand for 100 years
Join the #iamcarbonpositive MOVEMENT to offer to customers the opportunity to sequester the carbon used in the manufacturing and shipping of your garments at the point of purchase and donate to be carbon positive.
Following detailed research, we can estimate a cost of aud$2.10 per garment is enough to both offset and add a little extra to plant more trees , invest in soil and seaweed farming and result in drawing down more carbon than emitted during the manufacturing and shipping of the garment.
At a cost of aud$300 you can become an affiliate to promote this movement and receive printed swing tags as accreditation of your support. It also opens the conversation with your customers on offsetting, carbon and their ability to also participate in the #positivefashion CHALLENGE at home.
Members of the garment industry are invited to join the Movement to receive swing tags plus a Marketing and PR Kit to help share your stories & commitment to positive climate action.
