Human & Nature Projects
Think, help, and act
The company philosophy of Paradies stands for responsible interactions with people, resources, and the environment. Our many projects are proof that we at Paradies do more than just talk; we take action.
Since 2016, Paradies has been involved in projects aiming to offset CO2 emissions. Our company is thus able to balance its CO2 emissions of 600 tonnes while simultaneously supporting interesting climate protection projects around the globe. In 2012, Paradies focussed on reforestation and actively helped to reduce CO2 levels with the campaign “Tree Planting Project” (Baumpflanzaktion). In 2013 and 2015, the company placed its focus on people, especially children. With their campaign “Two Hearts for a Good Cause” (Zwei Herzen für eine gute Sache), they were able to gather many donations for the German charitable organisation “Ein Herz für Kinder” as well as create other helpful projects.

Projects and Aid Projects
Climate protection project: CO2-offset Improved water infrastructure
This climate protection project in sub-Saharan Africa (Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda, Eritrea) helps people in rural areas to access clean drinking water. It takes care of repairing broken wells, digging new ones, and installing manual water pumps. The project has led to improved living conditions in many aspects.
Climate protection project: CO2-offset Reforestation
This climate protection project in Kenya enables small farms to plant trees on their land if they can guarantee that the majority of their land continues to be used for agricultural purposes. The farmers receive annual payments to plant and take care of the trees. There are currently 63000 participants in the project; over 8 million trees have been planted.
Climate protection project: CO2-offset Protection of biodiversity
This climate protection project in Indonesia helps to protect and conserve 47000 hectares of reforested swamp land. This provides particular protection to the Bornean orangutan, a species native to the land and facing extinction. The project conserves and protects the ecosystem by building physical barriers, developing infrastructure, putting anti forest fire measures in place, and educating and training the local population.
Tree Planting Project
In the spring of 2012, Paradies started a tree planting project with the slogan “Sustainability”. Over 2000 trees were donated and planted in the German Eifel region. Since then, they have been actively reducing CO2 levels and thus protecting the environment.
Paradies & Ein Herz für Kinder
Paradies supports Ein Herz für Kinder. During a specific time period, Paradies automatically donated 1€ from purchases of specific children’s and adult’s bedding to children’s charities around the globe
Donation drive for flood victims
After the flood disaster in 2013, Paradies donated 1000 sets of bedding, which included a pillow and a duvet. Using the company’s own trucks, Paradies transported the bedding to Magdeburg and Deggendorf.
Donation drive for Japan
Paradies helped the people in Japan after the terrible earthquake and tsunami. 1000 duvets were donated with the help of the company Nishikawa, which handed out the bedding in the crisis regions.
