Gift To Closest People Around You
Idea: instead of gifting something wholly unnecessary,
reduce the CO2 footprint by 1000s of kg
  • In short, it’s a coupon that certifies that you’ve donated to a project that reduces our CO2 footprint by hundreds of thousands of kilograms. For example, by changing light bulbs or stoves for more efficient ones in the developing nations.

  • Yes, defintely. That’s the point of this platform – to foster a culture of giving sustainably. It’s way better to give your friend or family member a CO2 offset rather than something they don’t really need.

  • It is almost certainly not. A lot needs to change for the planet to stop and reverse global warming. Not least in the way we act as individuals and societies. Carbon offsets are an imperfect substitute, a small step towards the bigger goal. And, it is surely not enough. Yet, even little steps matter.

  • Giving presents is a beautiful tradition that goes back thousands of years. In fact, even animals give each other gifts. In other words, it’s in our nature. And, there would not be anything wrong with it. Yet, we are massively overdoing it lately. Making useless plastic thingies by their millions, cutting down trees and much more. Where is the joy in that?

  • One of our guiding principles is transparency. Thus, let’s be frank – we use part of the donation to sustain our daily NGO work and our team working on the platform. The remaining sum is going to selected projects through UN carbon offset programme. For you to know the exact sums, we’re crafting our annual report on how the donation has been used. This will be finished as soon as we crunch the data and numbers from the projects globally.
