Carbon Neutral Shipping Details & Policy

Carbon Neutral Shipping
All Olive+Comet shipping is carbon neutral, and powered by Shopify Planet. Current carbon-removal technologies include nature-based solutions (such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration) and more high-tech solutions (like direct air capture and mineralization). Our Shopify Planet “Millennium” subscription funds both types of solutions and includes direct air capture and mineralization in addition to some nature-based carbon removal. Shopify Planet funds companies within the Shopify Sustainability Fund network, such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.
Olive+Comet also maintains an Ecologi subscription that funds carbon offset and reduction programs—ensuring that our total operational footprint (including shipping) remains climate positive. See the specific projects that Olive+Comet contributes to here.

No climate-neutral strategy is perfect, and offsets are sometimes a necessary tool. We continuously evaluate our business model in an effort to lesson its environmental impact. To learn more, visit our Mission & Values page.

 

Processing & Shipping 

We process orders as quickly as possible—typically within 2 business days (excluding weekends and holidays). This timeframe is separate from the carrier shipping estimates shown at checkout. It’s in everyone's best interest to deliver goods as quickly as possible, but as a small business, we may occasionally require additional processing time. You’ll receive an additional notification when your order has shipped, including tracking information.

All Olive+Comet orders include climate-neutral shipping (the default selection at checkout). If speedier delivery is desired, additional climate-neutral rates are available at checkout.

 

Redirections & Refunds

Unfortunately, once an order has shipped, we are unable to redirect packages, change shipping speed/carriers, or refund shipping charges.

 

How Do I Check the Status of My Order?

Once your order has shipped, you’ll receive an email notification from Olive+Comet with a tracking number Please allow 48 hours for the tracking information to become available. If you haven’t received your order within 10 business days of receiving the shipping confirmation email, please contact us at support@oliveandcomet.com with your name and order number, and we’ll look into it for you.

 

Shipping to P.O. Boxes

Some carriers have limitations regarding P.O. Boxes. If you are unable to receive a package at a P.O. box, please use another shipping address, or your item may be returned without delivery.

 

Pandemic & Supply Chain Related Shipping Delays

Shipping delays due to the pandemic and related supply-chain issues have been occuring with some degree of regularity. Unfortunately, we are unable to predict the timing and severity of these potential snags. If your order has been delayed, please contact support@oliveandcomet.com and we’ll be happy to look into it for you.

 

Refunds, Returns & Exchanges
