Hi there -
Today we have our first size-impressive article: Bundle Box is featured in the Metro!
This morning I had the amazing experience that the guy next to me in the train was reading the article, for 7 long minutes. That was awesome. I couldn’t stop myself asking him what he thought of it. He said: “What a great service, many times I was left hanging at the checkout of a US website because they didn’t ship to the UK. I am getting this today.”
Wow. What a great start of the day!
We are getting lots of request from Bundle Box users about importing food items from the USA to UK. We understand, as there is plenty of great food in the USA.
Also, it is notoriously hard to ship food items from the USA, as no courier company will touch it. Here Bundle Box will help: we will offer a food import service soon. To help us set up this service for you, please let us know what food items you all would like to import from the USA. Just tweet us @bundlebox or send an email to email@example.com
Already by shipping your items in one consolidated shipment with Bundle Box from the USA to the UK, you are reducing the CO² emitted by your import activity from the USA.
We feel that is not enough. Now with Bundle Box you can carbon offset the CO² that is emitted during the transport of your shipment by road and air. Bundle Box not only enables you to offset your shipment, but will actually pay for 50% of the cost. Actions speaks louder than words! If you select to carbon offset your shipment, Bundle Box will pay for 50% of the costs to offset your shipment.
Bundle Box is committed to minimizing its impact on the environment. And we are really pleased that our customers are too. Since the launch of the carbon offset, 89% of our shipments have been carbon offset, a fantastic uptake!
How does it work? Together with Benjamin Kott (during daytime Green Business Operations Manager at Google EMEA), Bundle Box has developed a carbon calculator to estimate the amount of CO² that is emitted during the transport of your shipment. Once we have calculated the amount of CO² emitted by your shipment, we use a typical market rate of £15.00 per 1000 kg CO² to estimate the costs of offsetting. Each time we have gathered 100 tons in CO² offset, we offset these through purchasing credits in one of the projects of Carbon Footprint. Carbon Footprint provides UK government assured offsetting. This means that you can rest assured that your carbon offset is of good quality and that the credits we purchase comply with the Kyoto Protocol and have been checked by the United Nations.
Thanks Ben for your help with making this happen.
