The base of this idea comes from the flaws
in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)
Welcome to CarbonThieves, where we are dedicated to exposing the flaws in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). The EU ETS is a trading system that monitors the 11,000 largest emitting companies in the EU and sets a limit on their emissions. Companies that exceed their limit can buy extra allowances from other companies that are not exceeding their limits, resulting in a market gap that puts a price on CO2 emissions. The higher the price, the more it costs to emit large amounts of greenhouse gases.
At CarbonThieves, we buy these allowances and destroy them by printing them on our hoodies. When you purchase one of our hoodies, you are helping to eliminate 1000KG of CO2eq emission allowance. You can join us in calling to #withdrawTheCap or start helping #WithdrawingTheCap.
While our sweaters are not yet produced from organic fabric in a 100% sustainable way, we are committed to becoming a completely 'green' sweater and being mindful of every step in the production process. Our main mission is to draw attention to the EU ETS system, and we are thrilled that we have your attention! Our sweater still destroys 1000KGs of CO2 per sweater, so our carbon footprint per sweater is still negative at around -995KGs. We are currently experiencing an overwhelming amount of orders, and we ask for your patience as we work to deliver all orders in 4-5 weeks. Thank you for your support, and let's continue to make a difference together at CarbonThieves.
