We'll help expand your knowledge and will send you our latest podcast, reading and film tips on the topic of climate. These are compiled for you by experts and the wemakeit team. (This should also be exciting for all those who participated last year – we have new tips for you!).

Green karma I
Good deeds are rewarded: Your climate support will earn you a large amount of karma points! Let’s go! You can never have enough good karma. (We promise: You can use your karma points in many ways in everyday life!)
Did you know that transmitting video during online meetings uses a lot of energy and is therefore harmful to the climate?
As a remote team, we often use our cameras. But we’d like to change this: if this reward is purchased, the camera will stay off at our weekly check-ins! The more people join in, the more motivated we are to stick with this change ;-)
Climate protection needs knowledge! That's why this reward will give you the opportunity to experience the entire cycle from humus to seed to harvest: You can enjoy eye-opening quotes and exciting facts every month with the successful project «Climate Farming e-Learning’s» annual calendar. Get ready to immerse yourself in the art of humus management!

Zero waste life

Clean Up Challenge Vol. 2
Our environment suffers when we leave our trash lying around. That is why we want to launch a cleaning challenge between our team in Zurich and our team in Vienna this year. Who will pick up more rubbish in their city? Who will win the battle?
Green karma II
Extra good deeds are rewarded in a big way: Your climate support will earn you a huge amount of karma points! Let’s go! You can never have enough good karma. (We promise: You can use the karma points in many ways in everyday life!)
Poetry for nature
Our project advisor Alizé is also a poet and she’s happy to come up with something special for you. A great talent at capturing the magic of nature with her words, she’ll pen an individually crafted poem in honor of our earth just for you.
A special tree
Simply doing nothing sometimes helps the climate the most. We feel doing a somersault is pretty close to doing nothing. For this reason, we’d be happy to do one for you and we’ll send you photo proof to boot!
More special rolls
Simply doing nothing sometimes helps the climate the most. We feel doing a somersault is pretty close to doing nothing. For this reason, we’d be happy to do some more for you, even backwards this time! We’ll send you photo proof to boot.
A special tree Vol. 3
We are still convinced that sometimes what helps the climate most is to simply do nothing – to go nowhere and to consume nothing. After doing a few environmentally friendly somersaults to celebrate trees and the planet, we’d now like show our support and appreciation with a very special tree: The yoga tree pose (Vrikshasana). We’d like to hold this pose whilst also sending you positive thoughts and will send you photo proof as usual.
You can now sustainably splash around with a bathing collection made from upcycled PET bottles that have been collected from the river Limmat. ROUND RIVERS will provide you with your very own CO2-positive bathing outfit (example see slideshow; you choose your own style: https://roundrivers.com/) that is produced locally and transparently. Imagine how much fun you can now have whilst protecting our planet!

Art can also be different: wemakeit partner Melina is currently building a climate-neutral, cooperatively organised art gallery in Obwalden (theproposal.art) with her husband, the artist Jérémie Jean-Ferdinand Maret. Visit them in their picturesque Vogelsang house for a fondue lunch and an art tour of a special kind.

Talk’n’ride with Zélo
Get to know Zélo, the environmentally friendly delivery service that delivers fresh, regional products via cargo bikes. Visit them in Lausanne or Gland, and chat with them about their vision over coffee. If you feel like it, hop into the saddle yourself and take a spin. Or if you’re brave enough, you can even deliver an order yourself!

How would you like to get to know some donkeys and go for a walk together during a visit to the successful KiTa daycare project at an organic farm in the Zurich Oberland region? Refreshments are provided afterwards. For you, as well as the donkeys!

As upcycling is better for ecological balance than buying things new, our team coach and secondhand expert Sandro will take you rummaging around his favorite secondhand shops in Zurich. After successfully making some finds, you can treat yourselves to a well-deserved aperitif.
Pop by and say hello
Would you like some very special wemakeit insights? Our Romandie manager Alizé will visit a successful Impact Fund project with you and will share some wemakeit facts and her best crowdfunding tips with you over a nice cup of coffee.
Lake Zurich chat
Céline Fallet, Managing Director of wemakeit, will invite you to a small get-together at Lake Zurich. You will be joined by a surprise guest and can discuss many exciting topics around wemakeit’s commitment towards the climate, climate justice and female empowerment.
If we’d all heat by just 1° less, we could reduce energy consumption by 6% and thus help protect the climate. How about it? Will you help the effort and turn down the heat by 1°? To make sure you don't get cold whilst helping save the planet, wemakeit’s knitting trainees will send you a scarf. It might not be perfectly knitted, but we can guarantee it’ll be one of a kind and will help keep you warm!
Carrots on the road
A real climate feast: Let us grab a bowl and whisk and bake you a Demeter carrot cake with regional ingredients. We’ll then personally deliver the cake to your doorstep by bike, making sure we travel in a CO2-friendly manner. And if you like, we can eat a piece together. (This offer is only available in Bern, Zurich and greater Zurich)
Heavy mail reloaded
E-mails also cause CO2 emissions – around 10 grams per e-mail that is sent. For each support of this kind, we will offset 2,022 of our e-mails via myclimate.
Wrap up warm
Freezing is so yesterday! From now on, tramping through the cold snow can be done in a warm and climate-friendly manner. Enter the SWISS WASTE JACKET! The first truly sustainable winter jacket, produced locally and made 100% from Swiss waste, this ultralight unisex jacket (example see slideshow; you choose your own color, long style: https://roundrivers.com ) will perfectly shield you from the January cold.

A visit to wemakeit
We’d love to meet generous climate heroes like you in person! Please come visit us at one of our offices in Zurich, Geneva or Vienna. You’ll get some insight into our daily work and can talk to us about crowdfunding and the Impact Fund. Coffee and lunch is on us, of course!
Even more heartwarming
If we’d all heat by just 1° less, we could reduce energy consumption by 6% and thus help protect the climate. How about it? Will you join in the effort and turn down the heat by 1° at home or in your office? To make sure you don't get cold, our CEO Céline will send you a cozy sweater. It might not be perfectly knitted, but we can guarantee it’ll be one of a kind and will help keep you warm!
You deserve to be crowned an Impact Fund godparent for your generous support! You’ll receive this honourable title in the form of a compostable certificate. Trust us, you’ll be in for a surprise!
Saving our skins
Your commitment to helping the climate might just help save our skins! As a token of appreciation, wemakeit project coach Sandro will get a «IF22» hand-poked tattoo on his arm. Be there to watch the process live in the wemakeit office and celebrate the results with him.
You bike it
Get from A to B without gasoline: We’ll design you your very own retro bicycle. Whilst we can’t guarantee functionality for eternity, you’re sure to leave a lasting impression with this bike!
Pick up is possible in Zurich or Geneva.
We bike it
Extraordinary support calls for extraordinary deeds. wemakeit marketing manager Corinne will ride her bike from the wemakeit office in Zurich to the office in Vienna. She’ll cover the almost 800 kilometres and about 6,000 meters altitude with an awful lot of muscle power but hardly any CO2. You’ll receive live updates from different stages of her tour.
For a reeeeally great impact: You can exclusively support an Impact Fund project of your choice from the jury shortlist.
I just would like to support this project.
