Thnks + EcoCart
Thnks is partnering with EcoCart to provide the opportunity to make each Thnks sent carbon neutral, supporting sustainability initiatives and appreciating our planet!
Taking care of the environment, one Thnks at a time.
At Thnks we have a culture of appreciation where we are always looking for ways to spread more gratitude. In keeping with this, we wanted to make appreciating the environment a seamless part of the Thnks experience for our users. Now, you can add a carbon offset to any Thnks sent, powered by EcoCart.
Thnks carbon offsets will be used to support the Doe Mountain improved forest management project located in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. It includes over 8,000 acres of mixed hardwoods and ensures that the recreation area’s trail and infrastructure improvements are financially covered while conserving Doe Mountain’s stunning landscape and improving wildlife habitat. This project protects this land from alternative uses like subdivision and development or timber harvesting.
- Provides educational and recreational facilities for visitors to enjoy.
- Sequesters carbon from the atmosphere by protecting trees and plants that absorb carbon from the air.
- Provides a protected environment for many species of wildlife and plants by implementing sustainable forest management practices that prevent the unnecessary destruction of habitats.
- Carbon revenues from the project allow the Doe Mountain Recreation Authority to continue to operate with a paid staff and manage the use of the lands.

How It Works
simply check the EcoCart box when sending a thnks
We've made it quick and easy to add a carbon offset to your Thnks by simply checking this box in the checkout process.
The Carbon Offset is included on your Thnks
The green bar on your Thnks clearly displays that it has been made carbon neutral for your recipient. This is a great way to show that you’ve gone the extra mile by ensuring that your act of gratitude was environmentally friendly!
Carbon Offsets are Calculated Automatically
Each carbon offset calculation is based off of the exact cost of offsetting the emissions from manufacturing & shipping of each order. This includes the type of Thnks (e.g. physical delivery with shipping vs. digital delivery with no shipping) plus the carbon cost of producing the actual item (e.g. sustainably sourced vs. items produced with heavier carbon costs). EcoCart calculates the total lifecycle emissions created from your Thnks and donates the exact dollar amount required to reduce those emissions directly to a verified project.
Trusted and Verified
All EcoCart projects are verified by the American Carbon Registry (ACR). Founded in 1996 as the first private voluntary offset program in the world, ACR has twenty-five years of unparalleled experience in the development of rigorous, science-based carbon offset standards and methodologies as well as operational experience in carbon offset project registration, verification oversight and offset issuance.
