Lots of Cheese and Even More Offsets!Written by Jason Fitzgerald
CarbonFree® Partner Forever Cheese specializes in providing the best of the Mediterranean, including fine cheeses, honey, olive oil, jam, nuts, and chocolate. Located in Long Island City, NY, Forever Cheese's founder Michele Buster personally hand selects each artisan product directly from their suppliers in Italy, Spain, & Portugal. Featuring such famous brands as Drunken Goat®, Naked Goat® and Italfine, Forever Cheese has also launched its own brand to unify its product line called Mitica®. In addition to offering the most unique and high quality specialty products from the Mediterranean area, Forever Cheese offsets its corporate and shipping emissions with Carbonfund.org. Forever Cheese has gone above and beyond and offset more than its footprint due to their dedication to fighting climate change. Their support is the equivalent to the CO2 offset from the electricity use of 139 homes for one year, the carbon sequestered by nearly 26,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years, or the CO2 emissions from over 113,000 gallons of gasoline consumed. The majority of their donation supports domestic wind power, with solar being a close second.
