Navigating Towards Sustainability: Our Eco-Friendly Shipping Journey

In our interconnected world, the journey of a product from manufacturer to consumer involves traversing vast distances. At Doogood, our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the products we offer to how we deliver them to our customers. We are committed to ensuring that this journey is not only efficient but also environmentally responsible.

The Environmental Impact

When it comes to international shipping, sea freight and air freight are the two primary modes of transportation, each with its own environmental implications.

Sea freight, although slower than air freight, is significantly more eco-friendly. According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), shipping by sea produces approximately 47 times fewer greenhouse gas emissions per tonne-kilometre compared to air freight (IMO, 2021). Additionally, sea freight emits fewer pollutants and consumes less fuel per unit of cargo transported, making it a more sustainable option overall.

In contrast, air freight offers speed and efficiency but comes with a considerable environmental cost. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) reports that air freight emits around 50 times more carbon dioxide per tonne-kilometre compared to sea freight (IATA, 2021). This substantial carbon footprint contributes significantly to climate change and underscores the importance of considering alternative shipping methods.

Why We Choose Sea Freight

At Doogood, we prioritise sea freight for shipping our bamboo toilet paper from China. This decision is rooted in our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.

By opting for sea freight over air freight, we significantly reduce our carbon footprint and minimise our impact on the environment. According to a study by the Carbon Trust, shipping goods by sea produces approximately 3-4 grams of CO2 per tonne-kilometre, compared to 500-700 grams of CO2 per tonne-kilometre for air freight (Carbon Trust, 2021). This stark difference underscores the environmental benefits of sea freight.

Furthermore, sea freight allows us to take advantage of economies of scale, resulting in lower shipping costs compared to air freight. These cost savings enable us to offer competitive prices to our customers while maintaining our commitment to sustainability.

Why It Matters

When you choose Doogood, you're not just purchasing bamboo toilet paper – you're supporting a shipping process that cares about the Earth. By prioritising environmental sustainability every step of the way, we're working to create a greener future for generations to come. So the next time you receive a package from us, know that it's not just about what's inside the box – it's about the positive impact we're making on the world around us.

With our commitment to eco-friendly shipping practices, you can trust that your orders are shipped in a way that prioritises both environmental responsibility and safety, ensuring that we do our part to protect the planet while providing you with exceptional service.

Conclusion

Shipping our bamboo toilet paper via sea freight aligns with our mission to minimise our environmental impact and promote sustainability. By choosing sea freight over air freight, we reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a greener future for generations to come.
