Choose the Environment When You Choose Standard Shipping

Posted by BV Medical on

🌱 We love our planet Earth. How can we practice better ordering habits to help our planet? 

Let's take a look at shipping options. Online shopping is convenient, easy, and takes one click! However, it is not that simple behind the scenes. To meet express shipping demands, it requires more vehicles on the road alongside potentially less consolidated and optimized routes. This meaning there are less packages in vehicles, more trips, and more carbon emissions. 

Most trucks still run on diesel fuel unlike passenger vehicles. How can we get our packages with a smaller carbon footprint? Take advantage of delivery companies and their efficiency. 

According to data from the University of California*, express shipping has a heavier carbon footprint than slower ones. Slower is greener.
