SEEZA CARBON OFFSET PROGRAM
WE SHOULD NOT LIVE OUR LIVES AT THE EXPENSE OF THE ENVIRONMENT
As responsible stewards of the environment, Proper Living has placed the environment at
the heart of our business model. We aim to be carbon neutral by mitigation or offsetting
100% of all our products and services.
Our mitigation measures considers how we and our supplier partners could lower our
environmental impact through how products are manufactured, packed, shipped, and
ultimately sold. This includes recycling, using less energy and many other methods.
Funds from the Carbon Offset program is invested into renewable energy or carbon
capture programs. In South Africa we further enhance the value by delivering our projects
in impoverished areas, giving a cheap sustainable renewable energy source as well as
supplying work by planting trees. We work closely with partners in South Africa
who have a proven track record to deliver.
The program will install solar technology (lights, pumps and stoves) to reduce the reliance
on wood to cook and candles for light. Women in these rural setting spend a large
proportion of their productive day just gathering wood or water. This results in less time
to generate an income and further locks them in a impoverished cycle.
The program will not only offset carbon, but also provide cheap sustainable electricity with
added social and health benefits. The reduction in the use of wood and candles will result
in much improved respiratory health and fire safety benefits. Sustainable social mobility
will be an added benefit i.e. charging a mobile phone or running a sewing machine.
