1 Metric Ton Carbon Offset

Fig Value: ?

But really, it’s this easy. YOU, yeah we’re talking to you. You have the power to offset literally 1/20th of your carbon footprint (if yours is anything like the average US citizen) as many times as you want just by using The FIG.

Calculation Breakdown:

Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.

  • Environmental Impact
  • Labor rights
  • Animal rights
  • Community impact
  • Product Composition

A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:

  • If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
  • If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
  • If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:

If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.

Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences here.

This does not mean:

That you should go climate-hero crazy and not worry about your impact. Carbon offsets generally take time to take effect, so limiting your current impact is still important.
