WHAT WE DO
CarbonCart is a Shopify Plug-In created by the Eleos Initiative that uses a bespoke algorithm to offset the carbon produced by the products that have been purchased at a particular online store. The app requires minimum information from the consumer and their shopping cart, to produce an accurate indication of how much carbon has produced and how much it would take to offset.
All proceeds are donated to Gold-Standard carbon offsetting organisations who reduce CO2 in a variety of different ways, from planting trees to reducing ocean waste. The Eleos Initiative also contributes to the research and development of emerging green technologies and the nurturing of mangrove forests and macroalgae to stimulate the storage of carbon dioxide in our oceans.

Eleos Initiative offers eco-conscious customers a fast and inexpensive way to shop more sustainably, by offsetting the carbon emissions of all purchases through a Shopify Plug-in.
Eleos was created by three fashion industry professionals who were eager to see positive change within the fashion system. Despite being one of the most polluting industries in the world, fashion has been slow to adopt ecologically friendly measures.
The founders of Eleos set out to provide a way for consumers to take measures into their own hands and offset the environmental consequences of their purchases. The Eleos mission is to encourage responsible consumption through carbon offsetting, consumer education, and investment in environmental projects.
