PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Oregon Soap Company, a leading manufacturer of castile liquid and bar soaps, is proud to announce that it has partnered with Carbonfund.org Foundation, to register its full product line in the Carbonfree® Product Certification Program.
“Back in 2007, we made it a part of our mission to plant a tree or native plant with every 10 bars, or 5 gallons of soap sold. While we’ve planted nearly 775,000 to date, we were never able to confirm that we’d reached our goal of offsetting over 100% of our products’ carbon emissions. Now, due to our partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation, we’re able to accomplish this in a concise, verifiable way.” – Gregg Arnell, President of Oregon Soap Company
Oregon Soap Company worked with WAP Sustainability, the organization that performed a complete, cradle to grave, Life Cycle Assessment of all of their products. By using the internationally recognized methodology outlined in ISO 14040/14044, they calculated the amount of CO2 created by the growing, processing, and transporting raw materials to their facility. They then looked at all of the energy required to manufacture, package and transport the finished goods to consumers.
Carbonfund.org invests in carbon reduction projects such as wind turbines, rainforest conservation and truck stop electrification. The Carbonfree® Product Certification program is proud to be part of Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly Program.
