You buy, we donate

Thank you for helping us protect the climate.

By September 2023, we will have planted 6 trees per order and thus bind 1.2 tons of CO2 over the next 10 years, which are known to be the decisive years in the fight against man-made climate change.

Now we have talked to several organizations and experts in the field of effective altruism and have developed a new strategy from the conversations and information to donate more effectively.

Together, we create a better, more sustainable future.

We want to make the world a better place and feel obliged to give something back. That’s why we donate 1€ per paid order. We donate 40% to Wetlands International, 25% to the Against Malaria Foundation, 25% to Deworm the World and 10% to ProVeg.

Wetlands International (https://www.wetlands.org/) protects wetlands worldwide through a mixture of its own conservation and reforestation projects, knowledge transfer and political influence. Our donations go directly to a specific project in Panama to restore a mangrove area. Wetlands store a lot of CO2 and are therefore an effective way of protecting the climate.

The Against Malaria Foundation (https://www.againstmalaria.com/) uses the donations to distribute mosquito nets that protect against malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases. One mosquito net is purchased for every $2 donated and distributed in affected regions. Every year, more than half a million people die from malaria and others are affected for life.

Deworm the World (https://www.evidenceaction.org/programs/deworm-the-world) distributes tablets against worm diseases, which cause anemia, growth disorders and chronic immune reactions in affected areas, particularly in children. Every year, more than 100,000 children die from worms worldwide, even though treatment is very cheap at between $0.35 and $0.66. The distribution of these worm cures is therefore a very efficient way to support people in extreme poverty.

ProVeg (https://proveg.com/de/) is an organization that promotes a plant-based lifestyle and has set itself the goal of helping to reduce the global consumption of animal products by 50% by 2040. They aim to achieve this through the promotion of plant-based and cultured foods, education and political influence. The yellow “Vegan” and “Vegetarian” labels, for example, are also from ProVeg.

Many thanks at this point also to Effektiv Spenden (https://effektiv-spenden.org/) for their extensive advice! Donations can also be made to Wetlands International, Against Malaria Foundation and Deworm the World via their websites.

 

Previously, we donated to the organization Eden Reforestation Projects (https://www.edenprojects.org/), which plants trees in many countries around the world and provides local people with work.

We have also already donated to the organizations Bildung für Balanka e.V. (https://www.balanka.org/) and Gut Aiderbichl (https://www.gut-aiderbichl.com/). Bildung für Balanka e.V. enables school sponsorships and also plants trees, while Gut Aiderbichl is a sanctuary for rescued animals.

Our total donations (including a special donation of €10,000) amounted to €111.333 as at 31.05.2024.
