Worldwide consumption and production — a driving force of the global economy — rest on the use of the natural environment and resources in a way that continues to have destructive impacts on the planet.
Economic and social progress over the last century has been accompanied by environmental degradation that is endangering the very systems on which our future development — indeed, our very survival — depends.
- Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
Our products are made using the made-to-order production approach, fulfilling only the items our customers actually want.
One of the main ways we’re reducing waste is by improving our packaging of posters. For posters, we started using triangular boxes to replace tubes with plastic end caps. They also donate damaged and returned products to local charities, like the Red Cross, the American Kidney Fund, and Goodwill.
Around 78% of orders are delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled. Having fulfilment centres close to our customers is good both for the business and the planet. Strategically located fulfilment centres allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, and it also helps with reducing the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders.
