Did you know that the box that you check to indicate your shipping preference can have an impact on the environment? A recent on-line shopping site I was perusing had a box in the shipping section that said "Go Green Go Ground." According to Onlineshoes, "ground shipping methods use about 1/8th less fuel than similar air or expedited methods."
While making a choice to go green with your shipment method, they offer one more piece of advice. Go Green and Get it Faster. Ship your package to work. They give three reasons to ship your good to your office rather than your home.
· Your delivery is more likely to arrive safe and secure at a business address.
· You'll get it on the first delivery attempt.
· Less fuel will be used. Business districts are usually closer to shipping centers, so carriers can deliver more items in a shorter distance.
The next time you are greenifying your purchases by shopping on-line, consider greenifying your shipping method as well. Happy shopping!
