Climate Commitment

WE CLEAN UP AFTER OURSELVES

Product development and e-commerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. Honu works to reduce and offset our activities in every area of our business.

We know we still have a long way to go to minimize our environmental impact, but we strive to improve continually. Right now, our commitment to sustainability takes action in three key areas we directly control.

  • Producing less plastic
  • Consuming & wasting less plastic
  • Offsetting carbon emissions in our supply chain

PRODUCING LESS PLASTIC

Our approach to minimizing plastic waste is to reduce unnecessary plastic packaging. We have worked with our manufacturing partners to reduce the amount of plastic packaging that is used for our products.

This includes using paddle carry bags instead of bubble wrap and reducing plastic and Styrofoam wrapping for our boards. Many of our products are now packaged in biodegradable packaging, which are made from all-natural plant materials.

CONSUMING & WASTING LESS PLASTIC

Throughout the product development process, we are also looking for ways to extend the life of our products and make them more durable. While we have achieved this through a combination of advanced materials and construction, we thought we could do more. That's why we developed our 4-Year total-care warranty that includes repair.

We provide this guarantee because having long-lasting and durable products is a core part of our mission to reduce environmental impact.

MINIMISING CARBON EMISSION

eCommerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.

Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments create. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.

LET'S MEET A FEW OF THE COMPANIES REMOVING CARBON FROM THE SKY.

We use technology to improve weight & performance, extend the product life, or reduce its impact. Never technology for technology's sake.

Heirloom

Heirloom's direct air capture technology enhances the carbon mineralization process. Heirloom's technology speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂ rather than using energy-intensive fans to draw air in.

Remora

Remora captures CO₂ from semi-truck tailpipes as they drive, with the CO₂ destined for long-term storage.

Charm

Charm captures CO₂ using plant waste, converts it into a stable, carbon-rich liquid, and safely stores it deep underground—out of reach of wildfires and soil erosion.
