foof revives the ”it’s not easy being green” foofbag to raise eco awareness
The fine folks at foof in Australia, who have been making unique protective fabric sleeves for Apple Macbook and Macbook Pro for years now, are re-introducing the “it’s not easy being green” — a vibrant green corduroy foofbag.
foof hopes the
“it’s not easy being green” foofbag will “bring more awareness to online customer purchasing decisions with regards to greenhouse gas offset (CO2 free) products. foof is a small business that is in the process of abating their greenhouse gas footprint that’s been created from emissions arising from the importing of materials, manufacturing and exporting of foofbags. To this end, foofbags are made of materials like Herringbone tweed from Ireland, traditional motif cottons from Japan and colourful corduroy from China in our foofbag products. As of this year, every foof product on sale is emissions offset (or abated) via forestry tree sequestration in NSW Australia. This is done through a carbon credit reseller, called CarbonPlanet.
Furthermore, foof will also contribute the full cost to plant and manage a tree for 100 years as apart of the purchase price of an “it’s not easy being green” foofbag. AUD$4 will go towards this sequestration program from each AUD$36 “it’s not easy being green” foofbag they sell this month and next month.
Buy a foofbag and feel good, buy a “it’s not easy being green” foofbag and feel even better.
