Here at Thortek Outdoors we are well aware that the movement of people and merchandise is one of the many factors to raised carbon emissions in the world today.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency in their article Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, all transportation including trucks and airplanes were responsible for 29% of the excess greenhouse gas emissions in 2017.
Clearly this issue needs to not only be resolved, but even more needs to be done for this problem to be reversed and Thortek wants to be part of the solution.
We not only commit to balance our own carbon footprint for the transportation of goods, but to bring that number up to 10% of our yearly profits. First we balance our transportation footprint, and then everything else goes to forest protection and carbon footprint reducing charities.
You can also help out with this very important issue by going to a carbon calculator such as this one to calculate your impact. Together we can make this world a better place.
