Project Details

At a glance

  • Replacing open fires with fuel-efficient cookstoves can reduce wood or charcoal use by 40 to 50% and toxic emissions by up to 70% 
  • Reduces emissions, saves money spent on fuel, time required to cook and lives 
  • One stove on average saves 33 trees, 1,300 cooking hours, $280 of income  
  • WHO estimates that nearly 4 million women and children die every year from lower respiratory disease related to indoor cooking smoke  


How it works

The project will replace traditional cooking devices with energy efficient wood and charcoal cooking stoves. This leads to a reduction in emissions and toxic fumes. The cookstoves have much better thermal efficiency than traditional cooking devices, this means less fuel and time required and monetary savings for the families. 

    Why we chose this project

    This project not only achieves emission reductions but also saves lives, money, and time, leading to improved quality of life. It also focuses on improving the livelihood of women and advances many of the UN sustainable development goals 

    UN Sustainable Development Goals

    This project advances 8 out of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


    The Paradigm project is validated by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS project ID 1918)

    How its works

    Fund projects that fight climate change

    Select a monthly plan according to your lifestyle

    Follow your impact

    Any questions?

    Why subscribe?

    It’s the easier way to compensate your impact on the planet. Select how much you want to contribute, and we’ll make the hard work of removing carbon from the atmosphere for you. You’ll save money too – subscriptions are priced cheaper than single offsets. You can pause, change, or cancel your subscription anytime.

    What happens once I subscribe?

    Every month, you will be funding the best climate crisis solutions. Once we collect your payment, we distribute the funding to our carbon project partners. We also send out an email sharing updates so that you can follow your contribution.

    What’s the difference between Neutral, Positive and Hero?

    We’ve estimated that the average carbon footprint of our customers is around 880 kgs per month. But it entirely depends on your spending and your lifestyle. You can choose the subscription plan that fits best to your lifestyle and the level of contribution that you want to make.

    How do I cancel or modify my subscription?

    You can cancel or modify your subscription anytime by login into your account on YAYZY’s website.

    How can I be sure these projects are really stopping climate change?

    YAYZY has a strict methodology that involves doing research, standards and due diligence to guarantee we’re selling the best projects that provide long-term global benefits. We make sure the projects provide:

    • Additionality: the project reduces greenhouse gas emissions that would not be reduced through other incentives

    • Leakage prevention: prevent the leak or shift to another location or activity

    • Permanence: making sure green house gases are prevented from entering the atmosphere permanently

    • Verifiability: an objective third party that measures the performance).

    However, don’t just take our word for it. We provide publicly available information that hopefully clarifies how each project is contributing towards climate change and links to our project manager websites and third party verifications. You can visit the climate compensation projects information page here.

    How can YAYZY prove my contribution is going to the projects?

    We publish certificates each month of how many tonnes of CO2 (‘carbon credits’) have been prevented from going into the atmosphere or removed from it.

    How does YAYZY make money?

    YAYZY takes a small fee of £0.0015 per 1kg of carbon offsets. So, if you offset 1,000kgs YAYZY's fees will only be £1.5. To account for overhead, for one-time purchases YAYZY charges an additional 20% fee on the total price. So, if you subscribe, you and the planet get a better deal.

    Our pricing model is cheap, easy to understand and transparent. Additionally, charging a flat fee incentivises us to reduce the prices of our projects and to treat all projects equally.

    The fees are reinvested in the development of climate technology to help everyone reduce their impact on the planet. We’re a for profit organisation because we believe for profits have more tools to tackle the biggest problem humankind faces.

    What are carbon offsets and how they fight climate change?

    A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Carbon offsets are created by carbon offset organizations that prevent and remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere and verified by greatly renowned institutions.

    YAYZY works with the leading organizations across the planet that create the biggest positive impact on the environment and on society. Projects consist on protecting forests, using agriculture methods that remove carbon, clean energy generation and capturing carbon straight from the air.

    Is it good enough to only subscribe to offset my carbon footprint to fight climate change?

    No! 🙉 Offsetting your carbon footprint do help prevent emissions and remove carbon from the atmosphere. However, the best solution to fight climate change is avoid emitting carbon and other greenhouse gases on the first place.

    The biggest contributors to your personal carbon footprint are fossil-fuel heavy transportation such as flights, fossil-fuel heavy electricity and red-meat-intensive meals. So, to help fight climate change try reducing your flight travel, switch to a green electricity provider and introduce a meat and dairy free day per week. Also help spread out knowledge with your family and friends.

    Try to reduce your footprint by fine-tuning your lifestyle and shopping wisely. And become climate neutral or climate positive by offsetting the purchases you can’t avoid like flying back home for holidays. YAYZY is here to help 😊
