About us

We know that a large group of consumers want to live sustainably. Still, many of them find it difficult to know which brands and products actually are environmentally friendly. At Fauna, we want to make it easier for you to find brands which offer sustainable alternatives. And we want to reward your conscious choices. Therefore, we have created a guide for shopping green products and a loyalty program that rewards you with bonus points.
  • As a member, you get bonus points when you buy green products and services, such as public transport or vegetarian food. Perhaps this is already a part of your everyday life?
  • The bonus points can be used on rewards for yourself or others. It could be a holiday, tasty food experiences, or giving a girl the opportunity to get an education.
  • Along the way, you can follow your progress towards personal goals and take challenges with friends. You can also track the total effect of all members' contributions.
  • We promise to inspire you with tips and tricks for conscious choices. And we will never lose hope, because we know we will succeed.
