WONDERHEADS is a multi-award winning physical theatre company specializing in mask performance and exquisite visual storytelling for adults and children. The works are performed in full-face mask, a wordless form that mixes European larval mask traditions with character mask styles, resulting in a craft rarely seen on the stage today.
Even performance art and storytelling produces carbon emissions. As a touring theatre company, WONDERHEADS recognizes the carbon footprint created by its activities, such as spending a lot of time on the road driving, flying back and forth across the country, staying in hotels, and eating out. To mitigate the impact of the company’s carbon emissions, WONDERHEADS has joined the Carbonfree® Business Partnership and made a donation to support carbon emissions reduction, forest preservation and clean energy technology projects.
“We Wonderheads have been growing more and more concerned about our impact on the environment with all the miles we drive, flights we take, and hotels we stay in, and we feel that it is our responsibility to give back what we are taking,” explains Kate Braidwood, Co-Founder & Artistic Head of WONDERHEADS. “We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by offsetting our CO2 emissions each year through Carbonfund.org.”
In addition to the partnership with Carbonfund.org, the company works to minimize its impact on the environment as much as possible while traveling via recycling, using reusable dishes and utensils, and conserving energy by reducing electricity use. The team also uses recycled goods first when building and designing sets, props, costumes and masks.
Audiences have described the WONDERHEADS experience as watching a living cartoon – the whimsy and imagination of Pixar or Warner Bros in theatrical form. In this distinct style of storytelling, WONDERHEADS step beyond words and ignite the hearts and imaginations of audience members. Now WONDERHEADS has taken steps to move beyond its continuing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint by offsetting what remains.
The Carbonfree® Business Partnership program makes it affordable for businesses of all sizes and on any budget to enhance sustainability by neutralizing estimated annual carbon emissions from business operations.
Our newest Carbonfree® Business Partner, VitaDepot.com, recognized the benefits of the program and the parallel with its own mission to make healthy living available to anyone, on any budget. VitaDepot provides the finest organic and natural products, including all the top brands for vitamins, supplements, whole foods, sports nutrition and more, at the best price possible to its online customers. The company is dedicated to supporting customers in their efforts to live a healthier lifestyle by offering supplements that are organic and free of genetically modified organisms (GMO), pesticides, and other chemicals.
“People want to eat healthier, feel better and live longer,” explains Jesse Tomalty, Co-Founder of VitaDepot. “This not only includes supporting our customers in their efforts to live a healthier lifestyle, it also includes making the world a greener, more sustainable and clean place to live.”
VitaDepot works to minimize its impact on the environment and to make the world a greener and more sustainable place to live. Besides partnering with the Carbonfund.org to mitigate its operational emissions, VitaDepot:
- purchases shipping materials that are biodegradable and that have been made from recycled material;
- recycles or reuses all bubble wrap, boxes, paper, packaging peanuts and other shipping material received from our product manufacturers; and
- minimizes packaging materials by using boxes and shipping materials that are more properly sized to the items.
Carbonfund.org welcomes VitaDepot to the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program and encourages other businesses and individuals to “reduce what you can, offset what you can’t™”.
