Hello Bello customers already have sustainability in mind when they shop for their babies. Now, thanks to the partnership with Clearloop, they can now take direct climate action by reclaiming the carbon footprint of shipping their products and help expand access to clean energy.
With the help of Hello Bello, we’re expanding the definition of “premium for all” by investing in the American communities getting left behind from the clean energy transition. Access to clean energy should reach all corners of the country, and this solar project will provide enough energy to power 200 homes in Jackson, TN.
How it works
- Measure: Shipping a Hello Bello Bundle in the U.S creates 64 pounds of carbon.
We used the DHL carbon calculator to measure the carbon emissions from an average bundle shipped from Waco, TX to the longest distance it can travel in the United States. We then added 25% over that footprint to be extra conservative. We’d rather reclaim a bigger carbon footprint than we create to help clean up the grid.
- Reclaim: For just $0.38, each bundle’s shipping that’s reclaimed adds 1 watt of clean energy to our 1 million watt solar project in Jackson, TN.
A watt of solar is about the size of a cell phone, and that piece of solar panel will be helping to clean up the grid for the next 40 years!
- Track: Watch your investment at work as we break ground in Jackson, TN, flip the switch, and start generating clean energy. You’ll be able to track how your small contribution can have a large impact as we watch the solar project clean up the grid in real time.
We’re using this opportunity with Hello Bello to loop customers directly into tangible climate action. We’ve opened our calculator so that anyone on the Hello Bello website can reclaim their footprint, whether it is for one bundle, an annual subscription, or bundle’s shipping for a whole year, meaning all your little one’s needs can come with carbon-free shipping for less than a designer latte.
Hello Bello is joining a community of businesses, big and small, to clean up the grid, bring sunshine in to make carbon a relic of the past. We’re excited to take this first baby step to ensure that carbon is something tomorrow’s babies never have to worry about.

Clearloop partners with companies big and small to reclaim their carbon footprint and expand access to clean energy by cleaning up the grid with the construction of new solar capacity in American communities otherwise getting left behind. Clearloop was founded by three Tennesseans—including former governor Phil Bredesen—who want to ensure that the innovation and benefits of new clean energy investments reaches all communities around our country equally, starting with the communities in our own backyard that are getting left behind.
