What about Carbon emissions associated with Gone West?

Zero Carbon Footprint.

We believe that through travel we can document the earth and promote the importance of sustainability. Although it may seem hypocritical for our team to travel using fossil fuel powered means, we are proud to say that we offset all carbon released as a result of our enterprise. We're running a 100% carbon neutral business.  


Printing?

Sustainably Sourced Timber.

All paper printing, whether it be maps / packaging / business cards / leaflets or any associated paper products, are printed using 100% sustainably sourced paper from the World Land Trust and carry the trusted FSC logo.


Servers?

100% wind Powered Servers.

We operate our website and maps through a completely carbon offset server. We are proud to say that we can provide map coverage for the entire planet and data storage for the entire collective with very little environmental impact, powered only by wind power. We are stoked to work with Green Geeks! For more info check out - www.greengeeks.com


Distribution?

Keeping it Local.

We are currently in the process of reducing our transportation mileage. As such we work as a team to hold promotional material and any other physical goods. We are either testing or trading in our localised area.


Equipment? 

Fair Trade.

As much as possible, the majority of the equipment we use at GW is sourced from both ethically and environmentally sound locations. However, in this day and age there is usually always someone who is being undercut for the benefit of the richer party. We are trying our best to buy and advertise only ethically sourced gear where everybody is compensated fairly for their workmanship.
