Thank you for living sustainably

At the end of each year, people tend to make resolutions for the next. Quit smoking, get in shape, learn the guitar. At TAKT, our resolution is the same every year: to keep pushing the sustainability agenda. And we thought this was the perfect time to thank all the young people out there for doing their bit.⁠

Join the carbon removal race

We want to make sure to thank everyone that makes an effort, so we need your help. Tag your friends or family and as a sign of our gratitude, we will make sure that every tag is accompanied by the removal of 1 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Here is how to join:

  1. Go to our Instagram ’Thank You’ posts
  2. Tag a friend and thank them or give them a compliment for inspiring you to live more sustainably and making your world a little better. Anything goes, as long as it’s nice.
  3. For every unique tag, we will reduce 1kg of CO2.
    (We do this through Puro, a Finnish-based marketplace for verified carbon removal projects)

So let’s join forces in this quest, go ahead, nominate and spread the word.

Below, you can see the total CO2 removal achieved so far. We will update the chart on a daily basis. The carbon removal race will start on January 19 and run until the end of February 2022.

Get inspired to live a more sustainable
everyday life through these small
yet impactful habits:

Turn the heat down

The snuggle is real. As a rule of thumb, lowering the temperature at home by one degree will reduce your heat consumption by 5%. This leads to a total saving of roughly 1,000 kWh/year for a 130 m2 home. If you heat your home using natural gas, you’ll avoid 220 kilos of CO2e per year this way

Bicycle Grace

Grab your bike and reduce CO2e emissions by 90%. It may sound like a lot, but we aren’t pulling your leg.
Getting on the bike really reduces your personal CO2e footprint. Riding one kilometre on your bike emits only one tenth the amount of CO2e compared to driving the same distance in a fossil-fuel thirsty car. It also feels 100% better. Just try to steer clear of the rain.

Eat your veggies

If you eat meat every day you emit 2,055 kilos of CO2e a year. A vegan emits half that. That alone earns them the right to be a bit self-righteous, doesn’t it? Each meat-free day saves 95 kilos of CO2e a year. And if you do the math, that really adds up. So maybe it’s time to introduce one or more meat-free days each week and celebrate those who stick to plant-based diets?

Breathe new life into old things

To get on track towards a more sustainable future, upcycling is the way to go. It reduces waste and allows you to explore your creative side. A true win-win. Forget take-make-waste. In the future we make-use-return. The trash-to-treasure craft brings out the best of the circular DIY mentality. Safe to say, upcycling is a healthy exercise – for mind and planet alike.

Switch off

Turning off EVERTHING for one hour saves on average 0.2 kilos of CO2e per person. The Earth Hour initiative seeks to call attention to the climate crisis by literally blacking out. This makes it the one (and probably only) black out that is well worth your time.
