Since our neighbors to the South pulled out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, NOVEL SUPPLY CO. is going to push on (but we need your help!).
As a quick refresher, the three aims of the Paris Agreement are to hold the Earth's average temperature below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, foster resilient climate change adaptation strategies, and make greater efforts to fund sustainable development and greenhouse gas reduction.
NOVEL is doing just that! We have made the most conscious choices in designing and creating our apparel so you don't have to. And, we are working with other creative brands (like Topiku) to further promote sustainability.
But we could do more! NOVEL is ready to push a little harder and we want your help. We'd like to make a more meaningful commitment to support the third aim of the Paris Agreement - partly to stick it to the Donald and mostly because it's the right thing to do.
We want to hear from you! As part of the NOVEL crew, we are asking for your suggestions and recommendations on how we can further support sustainability. One thing to take into account is that the strategy needs to align with NOVEL's values: collaboration, integrity, radical transparency, innovation, locality, adventure and respect.
So, if you know of any awesome, local, youth organizations doing rad things, we want to hear about them. And, tell us how you'd like to see us make this happen. Should we add a carbon offset option to our checkout or should we set a percentage of proceeds towards a certain cause? Help us out and let us know what you think in the comments below!
