Reducing our carbon footprint is crucial to combat climate change and protect the planet for future generations. While there are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint, one simple yet effective step you can take is to switch to Savage Soaps handmade bar soap with compostable packaging. In this post, we’ll explore how using Savage Soaps can help you reduce your carbon footprint.

What is a carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide, that are released into the atmosphere as a result of our daily activities. These activities can include driving, using electricity, and consuming products that require fossil fuels to produce and transport. The larger our carbon footprint, the more we contribute to climate change and the damage it inflicts on our planet. The average carbon footprint for a person in the United States is 16 tons, one of the highest rates in the world. Globally, the average carbon footprint per person is closer to 4 tons. To have the best chance of avoiding a 2℃ rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per person per year needs to drop to under 2 tons by 2050.

How does using Savage Soaps with compostable packaging reduce your carbon footprint?

  1. Reduced carbon emissions from production and transportation:

Unlike conventional soap that is mass-produced in factories and shipped around the world, Savage Soaps are made locally with minimal transportation. This means that the carbon emissions associated with the production and transportation of Savage Soaps are significantly lower than those of mass-produced soap.

  1. No chemicals:

Savage Soaps contains no chemicals or artificial ingredients unlike commercial soap, which means that fewer chemicals are released into the environment during production and use. Moreover, by using Savage Soaps, you are reducing the demand for cheap commercial soap, which in turn reduces the environmental impact of the industrial soap-making process.

  1. Compostable packaging:

Savage Soaps uses recycled boxes which are compostable. This means that the environmental impact of producing and disposing of packaging is significantly reduced. Composting and recycling reduces the need to extract and process raw materials, which in turn conserves natural resources and reduces energy consumption.

“According to a study by the University of Michigan, composting food and yard waste can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 2 metric tons per year per household. While this study specifically focuses on composting food and yard waste, it provides a general idea of the potential impact of composting on reducing carbon emissions.”

How can you make the switch to Savage Soaps?

  1. Search for Savage Soaps online and ask for local markets to carry it in your area. 
  2. By purchasing from local producers, you are supporting your local economy, reducing transportation emissions, and often getting a more sustainable and better product.
  3. Choose Savage Soaps made with natural premium ingredients:

Savage Soaps are made with natural, plant-based ingredients, which are often more sustainable and environmentally friendly than synthetic ingredients. 

  1. Buy Savage Soaps with minimal or no packaging:

Savage Soaps are also available as unpackaged round soaps or you can even ask for your soap without a box. When you purchase soap with minimal packaging, you are reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

In conclusion, reducing your carbon footprint can be as simple as switching to Savage Soaps. By choosing to support our local business that uses natural ingredients and minimal packaging, you are taking a small yet significant step towards protecting our planet and reducing the impact of climate change. Nevertheless, it is an easy and effective way to make a positive impact on the environment while still enjoying high-quality soap.
