Nomadic Supply Company 2021 Stripe Climate Change Initiative

Stripe Climate
January 2022 Progress update
Stripe Climate portfolio consists of a variety of promising early-stage carbon removal technologies. Funds contributed to date have been used to buy the following types of carbon removal:

From September 19, 2021 to December 31, 2021, Nomadic Supply Company contributed $1,392.53 to Stripe Climate which enabled significant progress against Climate Change.

StripeFour new companies joined the Stripe Climate portfolio. Stripe Climate is the first customer for three of them.
StripeClimeworks announced the opening of Orca, the world’s largest direct air capture facility.
StripeFuture Forest successfully completed their first enhanced weathering trial. Building on their findings, they have launched commercial scale trials (>1,000 tons of basalt).

44.01 ($170/ton) turns CO₂ into rock, harnessing the natural power of mineralization. Their technology injects CO₂ into peridotite, an abundantly available rock, where it is stored permanently. This storage approach can be paired with a variety of capture technologies.

Ebb Carbon ($1,950/ton) mitigates ocean acidification while capturing CO₂. Using membranes and electrochemistry, Ebb removes acid from the ocean and enhances its natural ability to draw down CO₂ from the air for storage as oceanic bicarbonate.
Nomadic Supply Company 2021 Stripe Climate Change Initiative
Eion ($500/ton) accelerates mineral weathering by mixing silicate rocks into soil. Their pelletized product is applied by farmers to increase carbon in the soil, which over time makes its way into the ocean where it’s permanently stored as bicarbonate. Alongside their technology development, Eion is also conducting a novel soil study to improve the field’s measurement of CO₂ uptake.

Sustaera ($700/ton) uses ceramic monolith air contactors to capture CO₂ directly from the air for permanent storage underground. Their direct air capture system, powered by carbon-free electricity and built with modular components, is designed for quick manufacturing and capture at scale.
How we find and fund
Your contributions are used to permanently remove CO₂ from the atmosphere. These contributions are crucial to increase the likelihood the world has the portfolio of solutions needed to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Stripe Climate selects high-potential carbon removal projects in partnership with scientific experts and uses your contributions to act as an early customer to help them scale up. Learn more about our purchase philosophy here.

Nomadic Supply Company Freight Versus the Big Box Stores

Nomadic Supply Company wants you to receive your valuable products in absolutely pristine condition so we ship our large refrigerators via truck freight, and we handle and package them in a way that no other retailer does.

When we prepare refrigerators for shipment we spend a full hour to inspect, re-pack, prepare, and schedule your truck freight shipment for the following day. This process ensures that your order arrives to you completely undamaged and in brand new condition. Our competitors do not do any of this for you, and they are are infamous for having their refrigerator shipments arrive damaged.

Our detailed inspection and repacking process will cause a minor delay in shipping your order to you, but unlike all of the other online stores, our shipments actually arrive to you in one piece, without damage, every single time.

  • → We inspect, repack, & double or triple box refrigerators in our custom made, dual wall, fully overlapped, 450lb. test-rated boxes.
  • → Nomadic Supply Company adds 2” Styrofoam and reinforcements to the packaging and all of the large refrigerators are fully palletized.
  • → We take photos of your shipment before, during and after your order is completed. Our customers LOVE this!

We do not recommend residential deliveries via truck freight:

Residential deliveries are always more expensive than shipping to the closest freight terminal. Shipping to the closest truck freight terminal in your area has numerous advantages over shipping to your residence:

  • → It saves you a ton of money in truck freight fees, usually around 50%.
  • → You can schedule to pick the shipment up at your convenience rather than spending a full day at home waiting for it.
  • → You can thoroughly inspect your shipment for potential damage caused by the freight carrier before accepting & signing for it.

You must read and understand the entire LTL Freight process if you want to order a refrigerator from Nomadic Supply Company.
