(PRWeb) January 27, 2010 - KidBean.com today announced that it is offsetting its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org, the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solutions organization. By joining Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner program, KidBean.com has joined a national movement of businesses and organizations that are leading the fight against global warming.

 

 

Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner program supports third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad to reduce CO2 pollution and help hasten our transition to a clean energy future.

From its inception in 2001, KidBean.com has been deeply committed to the most ethical and sustainable business practices. The company has successfully kept its waste output to less than 13 gallons a month due to consistent efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible. KidBean.com purchases only eco-friendly office supplies and equipment and partners with other socially-responsible, sustainable businesses and organizations. All products are meticulously researched using the company’s proprietary review process, which analyzes the product’s entire life cycle.

“I’m always looking for ways to further lessen the environmental footprint of KidBean.com, so I’m very excited to be working with Carbonfund.org,” said founder Melissa Zenz. “Even after all the steps I have taken to reduce my business’s footprint, it does still have a footprint. Our offset of 35 tonnes of CO2emissions annually is a vital part of countering this footprint.”

On the KidBean.com website, Melissa describes many of the eco-conscious measures she has taken to make her company more green, including everyday practices like re-using packing material and boxes and long-term commitments to sourcing only eco-friendly office supplies.

“We’re excited to partner with KidBean.com in their efforts to be an eco-friendly business,” said Eric Carlson, President, Carbonfund.org. “KidBean.com’s support for Carbonfund.org’s mission and carbon reduction projects is helping lead the way to a cleaner, better future for our environment.”
