Frequently Asked Questions

What is the mission of Project Count?

We want to enable everyone to make informed consumer choices. This requires absolute transparency on the impacts of buying products. We are on a mission to provide this transparency. We identify and review the most sustainable items in each class and provide materials that advance environmental literacy.

You take transparency serious? What about your own footprint?

Yes we take this very seriously. On our Transparency Page you will find our footprint, the composition of contribution factors as well as details on the calculation and underlying assumptions.

Is Project Count a non-profit?

No we are not a non-profit organization. However any proceeds from your purchases in our shop are used to fuel our pursuit of exploring more sustainable methods to produce the daily necessities. You can find more on where we stand in our Journey documentation.

Can I contribute? If yes where can I find the details?
