At a time when e-commerce is being heavily scrutinized for its environmental impact, Shopify is helping its merchant customers reduce their carbon footprint. Shopify has designed its Shop Pay checkout service, which operates both on its own platform and for merchants who sell via Google and Facebook, to automatically make contributions to programs that offset the carbon generated by each order. Many of those payments are going to a program to plant 4.6 million mangrove trees by 2022 in Senegal—enough to offset the shipping emissions of all orders paid for on Shop Pay in 2021 and 2022.
