Celebrating over thirty years, Earth Science Naturals creates products with the goodness of natural ingredients enhanced with plant-based nutrients, vital vitamins, soothing botanicals, hydrating moisturizers and pure essential oils.  Committed to providing environmentally safe skin, body, and hair care without parabens, animal testing, animal-derived ingredients or artificial colors, Earth Science Naturals cares about its customers, and about the environment we share. 

Earth Science also cares about the impact its business has on our environment.  Even with the care taken to choose the most environmentally-safe products and practices, Earth Science knows its own office energy use, product transportation and business travel creates greenhouse gas emissions.  To neutralize this impact, Earth Science partners with Carbonfund.org to support carbon emissions reduction and clean air projects.  Since joining the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program seven years ago, Earth Science has neutralized over 600,000 pounds of greenhouse gases, the equivalent to planting almost 7000 trees and growing them for ten years. 

“At our core, we believe that having a “healthy” business means striving to do good in the world,” explains Kenneth Grand, Owner and President.  “A proud sponsor of Carbonfund.org, Earth Science Naturals is dedicated to supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the fight against climate change by supporting climate-friendly projects." 

Earth Science will be launching a new hair care line this fall with all locally sourced packaging and bottles at 80% post-consumer content.  They’ve repackaged their Active Age Defense line in more sustainable packaging, use recyclable components manufactured locally, choosing American-made, recycled, and sustainable resources whenever possible.  All cartons hold the FSC seal, certified to ensure responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. 

Earth Science is dedicated to support the fight against climate change by encouraging and supporting climate-friendly projects, locally and nationally.  By specifically seeking out local vendors and local manufacturing facilities, Earth Science reduces transportation and its related pollution.  All Earth Science products are produced in California, near the corporate offices in Santa Barbara, and many products have been formulated using organic and fair trade extracts and oils. 

As a family-run business, Earth Science Naturals values giving back to and staying connected with its national and local communities.  Earth Science Naturals has been a strong supporter of not only global environmental concerns, but also local organizations that work toward building healthy, sustainable communities, through planting trees, funding educational programs, pet adoptions or providing meals. 

The Tower Companies is pleased to announce that the Millennium Building at 1909 K Street in Washington D.C. has won the prestigious TOBY Earth award from the DC chapter of BOMA (the Building Owners and Managers Association).   BOMA's Earth award is part of its TOBY (the Office Buildings of the Year) awards program.    

TOBY is recognized as the most prestigious, annual award program in the commercial real estate industry. Established by BOMA International in 1984, the TOBY awards process includes a rigorous review of all facets of the building’s operation and management. 

The Tower Companies envisions a world where buildings inspire and enrich the lives of their occupants, and create a positive social change.  In this world, people seek out buildings that better their health and well-being, connect them to thriving communities and help to sustain the environment. 

 In order to win this award, the property management and engineering team was required to demonstrate excellence in categories that included environmental regulation and sustainability, energy and water conservation, client relations, emergency preparedness, community impact, as well as staff training and education.    

The Tower Companies neutralizes its own Scope I and III annual operating emissions by supporting landfill methane gas-to-energy projects through Carbonfund.org.

The team at Greenwave Foods, which makes “cruncha ma-me” edamame snacks, is driven by a zealous belief in their core values, which focus on ethical business practices, environmental sustainability, and holistic plant-based nutrition.   Their core mission is to provide unique snacks that are truly healthy, not just “healthier” versions of junk food. 

Freeze-drying and shipping their cruncha ma-me snacks uses energy, so Greenwave Foods reduces its carbon footprint by partnering with Carbonfund.org to purchase carbon credits that fund reforestation, renewable energy, and energy efficiency projects around the world. 

From inception five years ago, Greenwave Foods has maintained a commitment to neutralizing its estimated annual operating emissions by supporting Carbonfund.org’s third-party validated and verified carbon offset projects.  As a Carbonfree® Business Partner since 2011, Greenwave Foods has mitigated over 360,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to the greenhouse gases emitted by driving a passenger car almost 400,000 miles. 

We’re all busy - We are always on the run, so it is often hard to eat fresh vegetables. With cruncha ma-me snacks, we can reach for an all-natural wholesome veggie snack that is nutritious, tastes great and can be eaten anytime, anywhere.  Cruncha ma-me edamame snacks provide good sources of protein and fiber and are a tasty alternative to highly-salted chips or sugary candy bars and other unhealthy snacks. 

When you reach for cruncha ma-me snacks, you’re supporting a company that supports environmental preservation, too.  Carbonfund.org thanks Greenwave Foods for five years of partnership in helping to reduce the negative impact of greenhouse gases on our environment.  


On Tuesday, Biogen, one of the world’s oldest independent biotechnology companies, announced that it has achieved operational carbon neutrality.  This important sustainability milestone was reached through a multi-year initiative to reduce carbon emissions from global operations and by investing in environmental projects to offset the remaining carbon emissions that could not be eliminated from business activities, including emissions from its suppliers’ operations, employee commuting and business travel. 

The company’s commitment to environmental sustainability, philanthropy and diversity are highlighted in its 2014 annual Corporate Citizenship Report, which Biogen also released on Tuesday. 

To achieve carbon neutrality, Biogen has reduced carbon emissions through: 

  • Investments in sustainable technologies and highly efficient facilities and manufacturing processes including energy-efficient heating and cooling, power through co-generation, and advanced distribution systems to conserve water.
  • Coordination with its top suppliers to help manage their overall environmental impact and encourage regular reporting of their energy usage and carbon emissions in order to set and meet reduction targets. Currently, about 70 percent of the carbon emissions associated with Biogen’s business comes from its suppliers.
  • Investments in programs that fund wind, solar and low-impact hydroelectric power in the United States, Denmark, and Switzerland. Biogen is also investing in landfill gas projects that take naturally occurring methane gas and use it to produce energy.

Biogen followed the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Standard methodology, the most widely used international accounting tool for quantifying and managing carbon emissions, in calculating carbon emissions from its global operations.  These calculations were validated by third-party auditors to confirm Biogen’s statement of carbon neutrality. 

Biogen’s leadership in operational sustainability has received numerous and wide-reaching recognition.  Earlier this month, Biogen achieved the number one ranking on the Newsweek list of “Top Green Companies in the World 2015,”.   In January, Biogen was also named the most sustainable company in the world on the Corporate Knights’ Global 100 list, and was named the biotechnology Industry leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World last October.  

Carbonfund.org Foundation is proud to continue to partner with Biogen in achievement of its milestone carbon neutrality goals.  

New Carbonfree®Business Partner Pacifica Beauty is a 100% vegan, cruelty-free natural beauty company committed to creating effective products that meet the highest beauty standards, while using natural ingredients and focusing on sustainable packaging and practices.  Guided by compassion, the team at Pacifica treats women, animals and the planet with love and respect. 

To enhance this commitment, Pacifica recently calculated its estimated annual operating emissions, including office energy usage, business travel, employee community and paper usage.  In order to neutralize the negative impact of its annual emissions, Pacifica made a donation to Carbonfund.org to support reforestation and forest preservation projects around the world.   

“Our company was founded with a belief that if compassion is our number one business practice, we have to be good stewards of the earth,” explains Brook Harvey-Taylor, President of Pacifica.  “We chose to work with Carbonfund.org as they are one of the most respected carbon partners in the industry.  They also make the process of becoming carbon neutral simple, clear and direct.”

Pacifica’s commitment to 100% vegan products also demonstrates a commitment to operating more sustainably.  The company focuses on using recyclable materials in all packaging as well as natural ingredients in their products.  These measures and their use of carbon offsets and clean energy to neutralize operating emissions, and to promote educational efforts to fight climate change, set Pacifica apart as a leader in the sustainable beauty products business.

Healthy Goods Celebrate Fifth Year Carbonfree®

Written by

The folks at Healthy Goods have a passion for healthy living. Their mission has always been to find the highest quality, naturopathic, herbal, and whole-food supplements that support the body's innate wisdom to heal. Seeking out the best nutrient-dense, raw, certified-organic, and Non-GMO superfoods from exotic locations around the world, Healthy Goods brings its customers better health the way nature intended - from food.

Healthy Goods is located in Central Oregon, where its warehouse sits nestled between mountain ranges, forests, rivers, lakes, and high desert terrain. It is the perfect location for the adventure-loving, eco-conscious, and health focused team to find inspiration.

Healthy Goods also believes that its responsibility to customer health goes beyond the products it offers. This year, Healthy Goods celebrates its fifth year as a member of the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program, offsetting the carbon footprint of delivering products to its customers.  

Years ago, the Healthy Goods team recognized that their healthy diet options often came from distant lands, thus increasing the carbon footprint due to packaging materials and shipping emissions.  In order to reduce these emissions, Healthy Goods took several steps to reuse and recycle shipping cartons and packing materials wherever possible, use recycled paper tape for sealing shipments and recyclable fill materials instead of bubble wrap and Styrofoam peanuts.  Then, to neutralize the remaining shipping emissions, Healthy Goods joined the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program five years ago.  The Carbonfree® Partner program makes it simple and affordable for Healthy Goods to mitigate its remaining operational emissions, including all shipping emissions and all employee commuting emissions, on an annual basis.       

"As individuals, we're extremely excited about the locavore movement. But since Healthy Goods specializes in superfoods that are typically grown in exotic places, our company hasn't been able to participate,” explains Tom Burke, CEO of Healthy Goods.  “By purchasing carbon offsets from Carbonfund.org, we're able to import and deliver our foods to the ultimate consumer carbon-free. Our products now have a smaller carbon footprint than foods delivered by farmers to the local farmers' market!"

Healthy Goods also participates in their power company’s Blue SkySM Renewable Energy program, which supports a blend of 100% Pacific Northwest renewable resources from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.  This initiative further neutralizes Healthy Goods’ annual operational emissions, and together with the Carbonfree® Business Partnership, underscores Healthy Goods’ leadership position as a truly sustainable provider of healthy raw vegan foods, supplements and personal care products. 

A good wealth management firm helps its clients get their financial house in order - a great one makes sure its own house is in order, and is accountable to clients and to operational sustainability as well.  New Carbonfree® Business Partner Waymark Wealth Management, located in Westborough, MA, does just this.  The firm made the commitment to neutralize its estimated annual operating emissions by joining the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program earlier this year and supporting Carbonfund.org’s forest preservation projects around the world.

The values based independent wealth management firm helps individuals and families align their personal values with their investments and financial decisions.  The firm also works to minimize its carbon footprint as much as possible.  Co-Founder and Managing Partner Sean Fair participated in the NYC People’s Climate March in 2014 with many other investment companies to show the need for the investment community to take the lead on investing in a sustainable manner.  The staff strives to operate as paperless as possible, and use recycled and 100% wind powered generated paper products when required.  The company car is electric, and this year, the firm is starting an annual golf tournament to support the local land trust.

“We are all a part of a very delicate and often times misunderstood ecosystem,” expresses Sean Fair, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Waymark Wealth Management.  “Environmental and social stewardship must be a priority for everyone if this world is to become the place we all want for our children and future generations.  Simply shirking ownership or kicking the proverbial can down the road is no longer an option.  We want to help people understand that with every dollar you spend whether it is at the grocery store, buying clothes, the car you drive or money invested in the stock market, you are essentially giving those companies “votes of approval” for how they do business.” 

“If we all want sustainability then we need to make sure that we are investing and spending our money with companies that are helping the world achieve that goal.  To that end, we are proud to partner with a great non-profit like Carbonfund.org to make sure our company is helping do its part.”

Summer is fast approaching, and as temperatures climb and everyone heads to the beaches, thoughts turn to the delights of creamy, cool summer ice creams.  New Carbonfree® Business Partner Beachy Cream is helping to satiate ice cream lovers through its store in Santa Monica and through grocery stores and restaurants in the broader southern California area.  Beachy Cream manufactures and sells only certified organic ice cream, all of which is made in small batches, with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, such as dairy products from Straus Family Creamery and produce from the local farmer’s markets.

This year, Beachy Cream made the important decision to join the Carbonfree® Business Partnership, to expand on its responsibilities as a Certified Santa Monica Green Business and to neutralize 36 metric tonnes of operating emissions by supporting Carbonfund.org’s carbon emissions reduction, clean energy and forestry preservation projects.

“At Beachy Cream, we are committed to organic because we believe it is the best hope our planet has for improving our environment and all living beings,” explains Ann Ryan, CEO and Founder of Beachy Cream.  “We are honored to be partnered with Carbonfund.org and share its vision, values and goal to fight global warming.”

With tempting flavors like Strawberry Balsamic Swirl and Candied Ginger, along with several vegan flavor options and hot dogs, chili, grilled cheese and more at the Santa Monica shop, Beachy Cream is sure to lead the organic ice cream revolution and stand out as a sustainable business operation as well.  Carbonfund.org is pleased to welcome Beachy Cream to the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program.

Some costumers feel a little uneasy about Spironolactone ordering anything online. If you are of these people, Diflucan Side Effects rest assured that ordering online is just the same as ordering from a physical pharmacy. The Generic Lexapro only difference that you will experience is that you do not get to actually see us. The Albuterol Nebulizer services, however, are just the same. The products are also just as reliable and genuine. That is something that you can hold onto.
