Verdoo, a Romanian startup founded by Mircea Giurca, is doing its bit to support the fight against climate change. The company offers a convenient browser extension enabling online shoppers to calculate & offset their carbon impact. With over 10,000 retailers onboard, this service is provided for free. When you shop with a Verdo retailer, part of the money will be used for reforestation projects, helping to mitigate the environmental consequences of online shopping. By shopping with Verdo, your purchases make a difference! Verdoo is taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint and waste caused by delivery trucks powered by diesel fuel. Additionally, it also helps shoppers find the most attractive deals from its partners retailers, so they don’t have to look elsewhere.
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted Giurca to invent Verdoo, due to the significant boost in e-commerce.Giurca was appalled to see his neighbors’ dumpster overflowing with plastic wrappers, cardboard and the products they had purchased from online shopping during the initial lockdown. This highlighted a pressing need to ensure that online shopping is carried out in a way that is CO2-neutral.

Giurca asserts that any action taken is better than nothing at all when it comes to addressing climate change. As this generation is the first to experience global warming, we must also be the last to take any measures against it. We were delighted to find that more and more people, particularly the younger generation, are very conscious of environmental sustainability. Our aim is to help them buy the things they require in an eco-friendly manner at prices lower than what they’d get from other sources.
Verdoo’s incredible success has been attributed to its stellar teamwork, diversity, resilience, & collaboration. The core team works part-time and their development division led by Preetham Chandra & Ovesh Dhanga based in India has enabled the project to remain agile.
Verdoo is committed to making the world a more sustainable place. Its unique approach to reducing the carbon footprint of online shopping offers an efficient and effective solution – for every purchase made online, a tree will be planted in return. This initiative is helping us restore our planet and make it greener. Climate change is real and its effects are only getting worse. We must all take responsibility for our actions that contribute to it. Fortunately, there’s Verdoo which makes it easier for businesses and individuals to reduce their environmental impact.
