How it Works
The Ecodrive App seamlessly integrates into the Shopify cart so that your customers can help offset the carbon emissions from shipping the product. The function is automatically toggled on for a store once the app is activated. What this means is that when someone adds a product to cart, a product labeled Ecodrive will also be added with a price of $0.65, which represents the tree being planted.
Only one Ecodrive product is added no matter how many products are added to cart, so if someone adds 3 different items, there will still be only one Ecodrive (tree) in the cart. It is not added again per product. There is one tree planted per ORDER, not per product. Customers are given the option to easily toggle off the tree planting by clicking the toggle, which will automatically remove the Ecodrive product from their cart. Customers are also given the option to add additional trees per order if they’d like to plant more than one tree.
We automatically include the tree in cart to help increase conversion, cart size, and to maximize environmental impact/tree count. In your Ecodrive App Dashboard you can track the conversion rate of Ecodrive to see how many of your customers opt in to help validate that your community does care about helping the environment and is willing to plant a tree with you.
- All trees are mangroves in Madagascar, which is one of the highest carbon-absorbing trees.
- The trees help to alleviate poverty in the regions of Madagascar in which they are planted. We have designated plots of land in Madagascar where your customer’s tree will be planted within 30-45 days of purchase.
- The trees aid in environmental restoration by reforesting habitats for indigenous wildlife.
- Trees are planted on a monthly basis.
- The land all trees are planted on is protected.
At the end of each month, you will be charged through Shopify for the number of orders that had an Ecodrive product in the cart. A record of monthly totals will be recorded in your Ecodrive Dashboard. This cost is covered by customers that opt-in in the cart through checkout.
Disclaimer: $0.35 from every transaction goes towards Ecodrive's operating costs.
