Climate protection with Yook
Together for the climate
cat-on not only wants to provide you with good products, but also wants to make a contribution to climate protection together with you. bäm
Therefore, we cooperate with the experts from Yook to enable climate-neutral online shopping in a very uncomplicated way. We have chosen a reforestation project on Borneo, because trees are planted and protected there, which draw the climate-damaging carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere for their growth. And by the way, the forest is also an incredibly important ecosystem for animals, plants and humans. You want to know exactly? Then you will find more information on this page.
What exactly is a climate balance?
Good products make our lives easier or more beautiful in many places - but when products are manufactured, shipped and used, carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere and warm the earth. You can offset these emissions by funding and supporting projects that reduce or directly remove the same amount of CO2 emissions from the atmosphere elsewhere. In this way, you can consume in a climate-neutral way! These projects include, for example, forest protection and reforestation projects, because trees are particularly effective climate protectors.
How does it work?
Every time you place an order, you have the option of reducing your own carbon footprint. If you would like to voluntarily increase your climate contribution, it is very easy to do so by checking the appropriate box in the shopping cart. Your climate contribution will also be invested in the selected forest project when you return your order.
Example: Manufacturing and shipping one pair of sneakers results in about 20kg of CO2. With the help of Yook you can support forest projects with a contribution that removes exactly these 20kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. By the way, for 20kg of CO2 you have to invest exactly 1 Euro.
Do I have to participate?
You can decide completely voluntarily whether you want to make the climate offset. This is easily done in the shopping cart and has no influence on the payment process, the quality of the products or the delivery speed.
Why do we plant trees as climate compensation?
Because trees are true superheroes. For their growth, trees need the climate-damaging CO2 from the air and are therefore not only an important, renewable raw material but also a completely natural climate protector.
In addition, they protect the soil from erosion, filter rainwater, provide fresh air and maintain central habitats for us humans and millions of animals and insects. Trees are therefore a 100% natural climate protection technology.
Who is behind Yook?
Yook was founded by a climate activist and a software developer to enable climate neutral online shopping with just one click. To do this, they provide easy-to-integrate technology and take over the entire climate offset process.
What we particularly like about it? The Hamburg-based startup only works with carefully selected, small forest project partners who also work with the local population and specifically promote biodiversity. In addition, Yook ensures continuous monitoring, documentation and transparency about the CO2 offsets made and helps online stores like us to take further measures to reduce CO2.
