Sustainability

We love our planet and lessening our carbon and environmental footprint is at the core of everything we do at Welly. 

Our Packaging & Shipping is 100% Carbon Neutral

We are the first health & wellness company in India to go carbon neutral in packaging and shipping. We see that you are making conscious choices in your everyday lives and we'd like to help you do that. As a company, we at Welly believe in creating products that are better for your health and better for the planet too. With Welly, you can now ‘green’ your shipment! 

How are we tackling the issue of Climate Change?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human activities like burning fossil fuels and clear-cutting forests are rising quicker than the planet can naturally regulate, resulting in climate change. The fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to climate change. 

We already use eco-friendly fabrics and employ sustainable manufacturing practices to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions. But it’ll take some time to reduce our emissions all the way to net-zero, there are still emissions that are unavoidable. This is where carbon offsets come in.

We’re tackling these unavoidable emissions by investing in offset projects such as renewable energy, forest conservation and energy efficiency. These projects prevent future carbon emissions and remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere. 

We buy carbon offset credits from these projects that are equal to our unavoidable emissions. This provides crucial funding for these projects to continue to thrive while making all our products carbon neutral from ‘seed to shelf’. 

We want you to be part of our carbon neutral journey

With the click of a button, you can offset the carbon emissions made from your order. You can now experience our carbon-neutral journey across your entire shopping experience. Every carbon neutral product can be identified by a ‘carbon neutral’ visual on the product page. Click on the visual to see the exact amount of carbon offset for that product and explore the projects we invest in.

Every purchase confirmation email has a ‘Carbon Neutral’ button so that you can click and learn more about your carbon-neutral order and the communities you’ve supported through the offset projects. We’ll also send you an official Carbon offset certificate from our partner, SimpliZero with a unique transaction ID to ensure the validity of the offset.

 How do we select offset Projects?

We worked with SimpliZero to calculate the CO2 emissions from each stage of our packaging’s supply chain. This enabled us to measure the carbon footprint for each of our packaging types and find the best-suited carbon offset projects.

Our approach for carbon neutrality is to offset our carbon footprint along our supply chain and have a mix of Renewable Energy and Community projects. We worked with Green Story to handpick projects based on their type, location, and benefits. Each project supports multiple UN sustainable development goals in addition to offsetting CO2. All our projects are rigorously verified and certified through The Gold Standard and The Verified Carbon Standard. These independent verifiers make sure that the projects are working to deliver the benefits they promise.

It’s no coincidence that these projects are creating meaningful impact throughout the communities that our supply chain touches. Each order that is made carbon neutral supports all these projects: 

Investing in Renewable Energy

  • Solar Power Project, India
    A solar energy project in Rajasthan that generates clean and renewable electricity. It is composed of 3 power plants, with a total installed capacity of 400MW.
  • Telangana Solar Power
    This is a 6 Megawatt solar power project in Kolanupaka, Telangana. The project has demonstrated the viability of grid connected solar farms to support improved air quality, energy security, improved local livelihoods and sustainable renewable energy industry development in the southern region of India.

Helping our Communities

  • Poultry Powered Renewable Energy, India
    This project is a waste-to-energy anaerobic digestion plant which converts chicken litter into renewable energy sources. The project activity mitigates environmental and hygienic problems as well as supports regional smallholders to implement sustainable agriculture.
We're all in this together! Join us in making this positive impact on the planet. Tell one, tell all — share your impact with your friends and family!

 

From how our products are made to how they’re used and where they end up, we consider our social responsibility at every step. We wanted to go the extra mile and we’re so excited we took our first step to carbon neutrality with SimpliZero!
