To be able to offer free shipping, we had to rethink the way we ship.
The manufacturer ships their products from their warehouse to a distribution center. Then it is sent to a seller's warehouse or storefront. From there it is shipped to the customer. At each step of the way involves a large truck burning fossil fuels.
We ship products from the manufacturer's warehouse in a direct path to the customer. When more and more purchases are placed online, we need to do everything we can to minimize the amount of large trucks burning fossil fuels.
