Hey there, fellow puzzlers and parents!
As a new dad living on the West Coast, I’ve come to further appreciate the little things in life. The sound of waves crashing on the shore, the smell of pine trees during our family hikes, and the joy of watching my little one solve their first jigsaw puzzle. But there’s something else that’s often on my mind - our planet’s future.
When we started Puzzery, we knew it was not just about creating custom jigsaw puzzles; we’re about preserving special moments for future generations - and part of that is preserving the world that we live in. That’s why we’ve made a commitment from day one to offset 100% of carbon emissions from both the creation and shipping of our puzzles worldwide.
Our green initiative
To do this, we support innovative companies that are literally pulling carbon out of the air. Together with these businesses, we’ve managed to remove thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere and provide carbon-neutral puzzles for thousands of orders. How cool is that?
How it works
For every order we receive, we use a special formula to calculate the production and shipping emissions. We then set aside a portion of our revenue for carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct. These companies use our contributions to remove the equivalent amount of carbon created by our puzzles and shipments. Any extra funds go towards further development of carbon removal technologies.
Meet our carbon removal friends
Let me introduce you to some of the companies helping us make a difference:
Heirloom: These guys have developed a direct air capture technology that enhances the carbon mineralization process. Instead of using energy-intensive fans to draw air in, Heirloom speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂.
Remora: This company has found a way to capture CO₂ right from semi-truck tailpipes as they drive! The captured CO₂ is then stored for long-term safekeeping.
Charm: Charm uses plant waste to capture CO₂, converts it into a stable, carbon-rich liquid, and safely stores it deep underground—out of reach from wildfires and soil erosion.
As a dad who loves nature and wants his children (and future grandchildren) to enjoy it too, I’m proud of what we are doing together.
Happy puzzling! 🧩
