Known for their feature on Shark Tank in 2019, Blueland is a leading cleaning supply company with a mission to lower consumption of single use plastics. They are a B Corp organization and use eco-ingredients and packaging that are recyclable, compostable, or both with an emphasis to ensure minimal waste and efficient water and energy processes.
Blueland has been Climate Neutral Certified since 2020 and their aim is to maintain this status by purchasing high quality carbon offsets in line with Climate Neutral's standards. However, the rapidly evolving and highly dynamic carbon market left unprepared buyers reeling from spiking prices and uncertain volume availability. South Pole's carbon portfolio team worked with Blueland to identify a consistent supply of credits from a reliable, high quality project that displaces fossil fuels with clean energy in the United States.
We are proud to continue working with Blueland and providing them with the highest quality and reputational projects in the market towards their Climate Neutral Certified certification.
Despite having one of the smallest populations of any state in the USA, South Dakota's energy-intensive industries and extreme climate mean that per capita it ranks within the top 10 energy-consuming states. Luckily, high winds blow unobstructed across South Dakota's vast prairie and pastures, which cover nine-tenths of the state, making it one of the best wind resources in the USA.
"Our partnership with South Pole is an important component of our commitment to supporting verified offset projects that drive real impact and help us maintain our Climate Neutral® certification. While Blueland's goal is to create innovative products, supply chains and operations that help us minimize our emissions as much as possible, we are grateful to work with organizations like South Pole who provide third-party verified projects."
