About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

We like to think that every handful of shār is a big vote for community and for giving back to our amazing planet. So, hunting down the most incredible ingredients and growers, ones that align with our own environmental principles and love of nature, is one part of the mix. The other is making sure everything we do stacks up environmentally. Our packaging is plastic-free, compostable, and recyclable. The reusable and biodegradable shār tube is the first snack in a plastic-free refillable format with our bulk compostable bags - it's called sustainable snacking. Eat. Refill. Repeat. We're proud to give 20% of net profits to The Conservation Alliance, to be members of 1% for the Planet, and to be Climate Neutral Certified.
