San Clemente, Calif. – April 2, 2024 – Nomadix, a social purpose corporation and makers of The Only Towel You Need®, made from post-consumer recycled plastics, announced today the results of its 2023 Social Purpose Corporation Report. Notable 2023 accomplishments include: diverting over 18,200,000 plastic bottles from landfills (the most in the company’s history), lowering the company’s carbon footprint by 80% since 2021, and supporting more than 15 organizations by investing in its cause partnership with 1% for the Planet.

“Understanding the full spectrum of our business’ impact is crucial, everything from sourcing materials to selecting packaging and transportation methods for delivering our products to customers,” said Mia Helminiak, Director of Community Engagement at Nomadix. “By tracking and quantifying our emissions, we are able to clearly see the areas that need improvement. For example, our analysis revealed that packaging materials surprisingly made up the biggest portion of our emissions. Armed with this knowledge, we swiftly implemented changes, overhauling our packaging within a matter of months and lowering our emissions by a significant amount.”

In addition, the report details progress specific to Nomadix’s 2023 Climate Commitment including:

  • Partnering with The Change Climate Project (formerly Climate Neutral) to measure and certify the company’s carbon footprint
  • Switching its master cartons to FSC-certified recycled materials
  • Updating its forecasting methods to avoid last-minute air shipments from its factory
  • Changing its e-commerce standard shipping option from 2-day air to ground shipping

Recognizing the importance of building community to advance sustainability, Nomadix invested in more than 15 partner organizations in 2023. Some of those organizations include:

  • 1% for the Planet: On a mission to certify $1,000,000,000 in lifetime giving to environmental organizations by 2027—and they’re more than halfway there.
  • Brave Trails: Provided $123K in financial assistance to its LGBTQIA+ campers which directly resulted in 900+ hours of therapy provided to its community of teens and their families.
  • The Ecology Center: 100,000 pounds of food donated to local families facing food insecurity.
  • The Conservation Alliance: $2.1M awarded to 49 organizations to protect 11.7M acres & 40 river miles, 1 dam removed, oil & gas leases canceled in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
  • The Billfish Foundation: Worked worldwide to advance the conservation of billfish and other species.
