Outdoor Voices pledges to offset a total of 9,000,000
Lbs of CO2 emissions.
With the intramural capsule launch, Outdoor Voices is supporting the reduction of carbon footprints through a partnership with CHOOOSE to offset a month’s worth of CO2 emissions with every Solar Shorts purchase. CHOOOSE helps combat climate change by connecting individuals and organizations around the globe with high impact CO2-reducing projects. Together, OV and CHOOOSE pledge to offset a total of 9,000,000 lbs of CO2 emissions by investing in wind and solar farm projects in China, Thailand and Vietnam.
$16,000 invested in renewable energy projects
1.375 tonnes of global air pollution for each pair sold
1.375 tonnes is the average American’s monthly footprint
4,125 tonnes of pollution offset in total
“To CHOOOSE, this is the perfect fit. CHOOOSE and Outdoor Voices share the same values, and it makes me proud that we are setting out on this journey of protecting our playground together.”ANDREAS SLETTVOLL, CHOOOSE CEO AND CO-FOUNDER
CHOOOSE helped OV carefully select three grid-connected clean energy projects: a solar project in Thailand, a solar project in China and a wind project plant in Vietnam. These projects measurably reduce CO2 emissions through the displacement of fossil-fuel based energy with clean energy in the regions where they operate. Each project is certified by the internationally recognized Gold Standard.
“IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE ADVOCATE FOR OUR PLAYGROUND SO THAT WE HAVE PLACES TO PLAY AND BE ACTIVE FOR YEARS TO COME, WHICH IS WHY WE’RE EXCITED TO PARTNER WITH CHOOOSE ON OUR FIRST CARBON OFFSET PROGRAM.”TY HANEY, CEO AND FOUNDER OF OUTDOOR VOICES
