The Defining Issue of our Time
Everyday in the U.S. alone, e-commerce packages travel about the same distance as going to the moon and back ...133,000 times. And it’s not just getting your order to your doorstep, our entire supply chain carries a carbon footprint. Scouring the globe for the perfect coffee beans, transforming them into the Hunter Bay coffee you know and love, means literal tons of carbon emissions.
We’re on a Mission: As Hunter Bay continues to grow, we have an increasing responsibility to commit additional resources toward our values in order to maximize the positive impact of our products. At Hunter Bay, we have long held the conviction that we can be both a great business and a great corporate citizen. In fact, we believe we cannot be one without the other.
What Hunter Bay is Doing: Starting today, when you purchase coffee on our online store, you can opt-in to participate in our carbon offset program. If you do decide to opt-in, we will match your donation. This is optional, if you aren't in the position to help out, no worries. If you want to see eco-carts awesome projects check out this link.

What does it mean to offset emissions? It means that for any carbon emissions released into our atmosphere as a result of manufacturing and shipping items at Hunter Bay, we invest in projects that reduce carbon emissions by the same amount. It’s almost like we’re giving the planet an IOU, then immediately paying it back.
