Offset Emissions with REDD+
Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation

When you purchase REDD+ offsets from Wildlife Works, you are purchasing Verified Emission Reductions that preserve threatened forests, protect endangered wildlife, and uplift forest communities.

When you place your order of REDD+ offsets/VERs, the offsets will be retired on your behalf. You will receive a certificate and a record of the VER serial numbers that were retired. If you have any questions, please Wildlife Works at support@wildlifeworks.com

Furthermore, traveling with Green-Safari raises funds for a small reforestation project adjacent to the Buffalo Camp, Tsavo East Kenya. Every tree planted counts.

Slow production

We stumbled on the Slow Movement in 2007. Whilst working with a local NGO (Non Governamental Organisation) in Ethiopia we met some inspiring people. Every year the NGO was supported by an Italian photographer who donated a series of photos for a calendar boasting the beauty and wonders of Ethiopia. Paula was a big advocate of the Slow Food Movement - founded in Italy in 1989. 

This is one of the most vanguard movements of our times. With collective consumerism on the rise and the growing disconcern with our means of production and their impact on our wellbeing and the planet - Slow Production offers a solution. The SlowProduction method is built on these values:

  • Transparency

  • Simplicity

  • Consciousness

SlowProduction is bringing consciousness into the world of producing goods, foods and services for people.The first SlowBrands are being 'slowly' introduced to the US and the European market. SlowProduction = Goods for people not consumers!

These are not new ideas....but they really resonate with our new project - Merkato MKTO. We want to demonstrate that beautiful, innovative, simple, sustainable products we consume can and should be made and sold so that everyone involved is a winner. Trade is the most important vehicle for sustaining livelihoods. And we are in the prefect position to create those links, build those relationships and tell the full honest story. 

So watch this space!
