We love some footprints. Like the ones you make walking in wet sand. Or hiking up a mountainside through the mud. But carbon footprints, not so much. That said, by simply existing in this world, we all create a carbon footprint. It happens when we take a shower, charge our cell phone, and let out a yawn after a long day.
So, what’s the big deal? Well, the more carbon that’s in the atmosphere, the faster our planet warms. A warmer planet and a changing climate mean melting ice caps, rising sea levels, extreme weather events followed by droughts, wildfires...you get the gist. But hey, we’ve got good news—it’s not too late to help. We can all make little changes in our everyday routines to reduce our impact. Things like bringing reusable bags on grocery trips, biking instead of driving, and composting food scraps, to name a few.
In 2020, Tilos is committed to become carbon neutral. From adopting petroleum-free neoprene made of limestone and pyrolized scrap rubber tires to packaging our products in fully bio-degradable plant based plastic (that acts as a fertilizer once decomposed). Our Pomona, CA headquarters has taken steps to increase energy efficiency, reduce waste and paper usage by 90% in the past 10 years.
