Mutts and Hounds manufacture luxury dog products supplying Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason and over the past 2 years has seen record growth in e-commerce orders and Founder Richard Corsie MBE wanted as a priority to find a solution to counter the vast increase in carriage emissions.

Planting a certified tree for every order has enabled Mutts & Hounds to remove all the CO2 created in the carriage process by planting over 5000 certified mangrove trees, removing nearly 28 tonnes of CO2 as part of its journey to net-zero.

“For Mutts and Hounds it was an easy decision to fund planting a Tree for every parcel despatched. Whilst we recognise the financial challenges businesses are facing, it doesn’t cost the Earth to implement such a policy but it contributes to saving the Earth, while our customers know their dog bed has been delivered to their door in a carbon neutral manner” commented Andrea Sleep, Head of E-commerce

Customers can also plant more trees at checkout with every order, and with over 7000 product items on offer, customers have the comfort knowing their order will reach them carbon free. Mutts & Hounds and its customers are able to easily see the impact they are making via their unique Virtual Impact Forest.

The mangrove trees are planted at a dedicated SKOOT site in Tudor Creek, just outside Mombassa, one of the most deforested and deprived countries in the world. Mutts and Hounds and its customers are helping re-build a community, providing much needed sustainable employment whilst also re-building an eco-system with leading NGO Eden Reforestation.

“We wanted to find a simple way to ensure that with every order, and for every customer we could help reduce our carbon footprint, particularly around deliveries. Whilst also ensuring that we could showcase what we’re doing, the ability for our customers to get involved has been fantastic. It’s so lovely to be part of a great community, and be able to see the impact we’re making. The SKOOT platform is absolutely fantastic and I would encourage any e-commerce business that is looking to offset their carbon to consider SKOOT as your trusted partner” Andrea Sleep, Head of E-commerce

“Small positive actions make a huge difference. Seeing the impact that Mutts and Hounds and its customers are making is so rewarding. Each tree will remove over 5.9kg of CO2 in their first year alone and nearly 500kg each during their life-time, but more importantly stabilise and re-generate an area for generations to come. Only by us all taking more responsibility and working together can we help solve the climate change crises”. Mark Stringer Co-Founder SKOOT
