Offset the carbon footprint of your order

Sustainability has always been at the core of our activity. We believe that if we all work together towards positive change, we can make the world a cleaner, healthier place. That is why we’re very excited to announce that we’ve partnered with EcoCart to make your orders carbon neutral.

How does it work?

EcoCart maps your order weight, contents and shipping distance against empirically validated CO2 emissions data, and calculates the exact cost of offsetting the carbon impact of the order. In general, the donation for each pair of shoes ordered will help protect 2 trees in the Amazon Rainforest.

Melvin & Hamilton commits to automatically offset all orders and gives you the opportunity to match the donation and double the impact!

The impact

Amazon Rainforest Protection

Amazon Rainforest Protection

90% of Brazil’s Acre state is forested, but current rates of destruction mean by 2030 this could decline to 65%. This collection of three projects aims to prevent deforestation across 105,000 hectares of pristine rainforest in the Amazon basin, protecting some of the world’s most biodiverse habitats. The projects work with communities and local groups to help protect ecosystem services while providing alternative models of economic development which avoid the destruction of the forest.
