Nomadix, a Social Purpose Corporation and makers of The Only Towel You Need® made from post-consumer recycled plastics, is proud to announce that it is officially Climate Neutral Certified.
“We have been developing products with post-consumer recycled materials, and keeping our footprint as low as possible with minimalist packaging,” said Nomadix Founder and CEO Zack Helminiak. “But the moment calls for all companies to also offset emissions and make a collective commitment to a better future. The whole Nomadix team is celebrating our much anticipated Carbon Neutrality this Earth Day.”
Nomadix joins the growing movement of brands achieving the Climate Neutral Certified standard by measuring its 2021 greenhouse gas emissions, purchasing eligible verified carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions next year and beyond. In 2021, Nomadix offset 3,892 metric tons of CO2 emissions with the help of two partner organizations, BEF and Carbonfund.org to support renewable energy and forestry projects.
Today, Nomadix also announced the brand’s Road Map to Sustainability reflecting the brand’s commitment to further action toward positive environmental change. The Road Map includes three action items for change: reduce air freight shipping emissions by 50% in the next two years, transition to at least 50% renewable energy at Nomadix HQ office/warehouse, and remove 100% of virgin plastic from production.
“Since the brand’s inception, Nomadix has been inextricably tied to the health and sustainability of the planet and becoming certified was very important to us,” said Mia Helminiak, Director of Community Engagement for Nomadix. “We believe in Climate Neutral’s mission of taking action now to solve a problem we understand to be an urgent threat.”
California-based Nomadix launched in 2015 with The Only Towel You Need® – a multi-purpose towel that performs for any activity, including travel, yoga, boating, and at the beach. Nomadix understands that the environmental footprint of the products people buy will have an impact on the planet that lasts longer than we will. A commitment to discovering durable, multi-purpose, responsibly manufactured solutions that will leave the planet better than we found it is part of its ethos – Own less. Do more. Today Nomadix is carried in major retailers in the United States, including REI, West Marine, and Boardriders and distributed in 31 countries around the world.
