Dussault Apparelz Carbon Conscience program

Dussault Apparel Inc unveiled a company wide initiative to become the world's first carbon neutral clothing company and to raise environmental awareness about global warming and the creation of the Carbon Conscience program.

Dussault Apparel has chosen the Carbonfund as its offset partner for this initiative. The first step taken by the Company has been to determine its associated carbon dioxide emission footprint and subsequently reduce its annual energy usage. The Company will make donations to the Carbonfund completely offsetting its carbon footprint to zero.

Jason Dussault, Founder, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Dussault Apparel, comments, "It is no secret the environment is in desperate need of our attention. In a world with conflicting information from the media, it can be difficult to find the facts."

"We at Dussault Apparel feel a responsibility to help make a difference. This is the reason why we created the awareness and fundraising program called Carbon Conscience. Inspired by the ideologies of CarbonFund.org, this is a project we all feel good about. I have designed a line of t-shirts and rings that echo our environmental stand. 100% of the profits from these items will be donated towards reducing the carbon footprint we all leave on our planet. After all, we all have to live with our conscience.”

CarbonFree Product Certification Protocol - The Company has committed to offset the carbon footprint of its entire line of products. Working with the Carbonfund.org's CarbonFree Product Certification Protocol, the Company has determined the greenhouse gas impact of its products through the entire life cycle of the item, offsetting the emissions quarterly based on actual unit sales of each certified product with Carbonfund; and annually reviewing the product footprint and reporting on measures the Company has taken to reduce the climate impact of producing and distributing its products.
