Our Ethical Partnerships


GOOD API: Championing Reforestation Efforts

At El Felipe, we understand the pivotal role trees play in preserving biodiversity and combating climate change. That's why we've partnered with Good API to support reforestation projects around the globe. Through initiatives like the Eden Reforestation Projects, we're not only planting trees but also nurturing ecosystems, providing livelihoods to indigenous communities, and safeguarding wildlife habitats.

Planting for a Sustainable Future

But how can we possibly plant for such a low price? Good API works hand in hand with Eden Reforestation to ensure cost-efficient yet impactful reforestation. The inexpensive cost per tree is made possible because most of the resources needed are either free or extremely affordable. A large majority of the trees planted are mangrove species, which, at 3-5 years of age, begin to produce and drop their own propagules, facilitating the growth of new trees. Additionally, resources are collected from existing forests and replenished through sustainable practices, minimizing costs associated with procurement. The irrigation system of coastal forests, where many mangroves thrive, further reduces the need for costly irrigation.

Moreover, transparency is key. Good API maintains a tree planting ledger, providing customers with a running count of all trees paid for and their corresponding certificates, ensuring accountability and trust.

Empowering Communities, Preserving Ecosystems

Beyond the environmental benefits, Good API's commitment to paying fair wages to its international employees has been transformational for their quality of life. By operating in developing nations, they can leverage local expertise and resources, maximizing efficiency and impact.


PLANET: Pioneering Carbon-Neutral E-commerce

In the realm of e-commerce, convenience often carries a carbon footprint. At El Felipe, we're proud to be part of the solution. We've teamed up with PLANET, a leading company dedicated to carbon removal, resulting in impressive accomplishments: thousands of tons of carbon removed and carbon-neutral shipping on over ten million orders. Here's how it works: with every purchase, a portion of revenue is allocated to certified carbon removal companies, ensuring that the equivalent amount of carbon emitted during shipping is extracted. Surplus funds support advancements in carbon removal technologies. Our partners, like Grassroots Carbon and Mast Reforestation, lead the charge with innovative solutions, from enhancing soil health to rejuvenating forests ravaged by wildfires.


WEBSITE CARBON: Measuring our Carbon Emissions

When it comes to achieving carbon neutrality, it's essential to quantify our carbon emissions. That's why we've implemented a website carbon counter at the footer of every page of El Felipe. This tool enables us to accurately measure the carbon we release into the environment with each transaction. In turn, we're committed to offsetting these emissions through various carbon offsetting initiatives, such as reforestation projects with Good API and carbon removal efforts with companies like Grassroots Carbon and Mast Reforestation.
