Climate protection with Yook
Together for the climate
venso-ecosolutions.de not only wants to provide you with good products, but also make a contribution to climate protection together with you.
We cooperate with the experts from Yook to enable climate-neutral online shopping in a very uncomplicated way. We decided on a reforestation project on Borneo, because there trees are planted and protected, which draw the climate-damaging carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere for their growth. And almost incidentally, the forest is also an incredibly important ecosystem for animals, plants and us humans.

What exactly is climate offset?
Good products make our lives easier or nicer in many places - but during the manufacture, shipping and use of products, 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 the same amount of CO2 emissions elsewhere or remove them directly from the atmosphere. So you can consume climate-neutral! These projects include, for example, forest protection and reforestation projects, because trees are particularly effective climate protectors.
How does this work?
With every order there is the option to reduce your own carbon footprint. If you would like to voluntarily increase your climate contribution, it's super easy by ticking the appropriate box in the shopping cart. Your climate contribution will also be invested in the selected forest project if you return your order.
An example: Manufacturing and shipping a pair of sneakers results in around 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. Incidentally, 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 carry out climate compensation. This is very easy to do in the shopping cart and has no influence on the payment process, the quality of the products or the speed of delivery.
Why do we plant trees to offset the climate?
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 a central habitat for us humans and millions of animals and insects. So trees are 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 on the entire process of climate compensation.
What do we particularly like about it? The Hamburg 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 of the CO2 compensation payments made and helps online shops like us to take further measures to reduce CO2.
