What is carbon offsetting?
For every tonne of carbon dioxide Sendle releases into the air while delivering parcels, we cancel it out by supporting projects that combat climate change. Read more.
How does it work?
Every dollar we invest enables us to support genuinely world-changing initiatives. To find that dollar amount, we calculate the potential CO2 generated by all parcel sends for the previous year, and then invest it via our partner, South Pole. So the deliveries of all Sendle customers are 100% carbon neutral.
Does this cost me anything?
Nope! Being sustainable shouldn’t cost you more, in fact, with Sendle's Price Guarantee you actually save money by being green, how good is that?
Do I have a say in which projects are chosen?
Absolutely! Each year we ask our community to select which environmental initiative they would like to support. Read more.

Every single shipment makes a difference by saving carbon capturing forests and all the little creatures that call them home.

Our projects

Each year, the Sendler community selects on which projects will offset our footprint.

Darkwoods

( Canada )

A carbon sink is any place that stores more carbon that it releases. Forests are not only home to at-risk wildlife, they are vital places that store and sequester carbon from Earth’s atmosphere. The Darkwoods Forest Conservation project sustains and protects almost 55,000 hectares of some of the most diverse forests in British Columbia, including rare old-growth inland temperate rainforests.

Tasmanian Forest

( Australia )

Protecting pockets of native forests in Tasmania’s Central Highlands since 2009. By stopping logging and land degradation, the project prevents stored carbon from being released. The vibrant forest creates economic opportunities for ecotourism, improves water quality, and protects wild species like the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, found nowhere else. 

Mount Sandy

( Australia )

The Mount Sandy project permanently protects a rare pocket of wetlands and woodlands between the Coorong National Park and Lake Albert in partnership with its Traditional Owners, the Ngarrindjeri. As one of the last remaining areas of native vegetation in the region, the land forms a strategic corridor for wildlife, including the short-beaked echidna, purple-gaped honeyeater and elegant parrot.

Beidler Forest

( United States )

Native trees including longleaf pine, red maple, and water oak have been permanently conserved in this project owned and managed by the National Audubon Society in South Carolina. The National Audubon Society of South Carolina has protected 5,500 acres where many birds, including the stunning eastern Painted Bunting, call home. These birds are just one species threatened by habitat loss.
