Visoko directs 5% of its e-commerce purchases for the year to the Natural Heritage Foundations. For 2022, it was decided to allocate this donation to the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation's Activist Granny Grandma's Forest.
"Activist Grannies supports the conservation activities of the Natural Heritage Foundation by campaigning for grandma's forest. The aim is to use the funds raised to establish protected granny forests, which, with their stories, inspire more and more people and generations to work long-term for the benefit of our forests. Protected forests provide an important opportunity for recreation and hiking for grannies, grandchildren and anyone interested. As they grow, forests sequester carbon in their trunks and root system and act as a carbon sink. Old primary forests are important carbon stores, maintainers of diverse nature and our common valuable heritage." -Natural Heritage Foundation The image is associated with the campaign.
In Visoko, it is believed that through the manifestation of aesthetics and a deeper connection with nature, a stronger will to protect nature and the climate awakens in humans. Take your grandchildren or child friends to the forest and it will be your best climate action ever. Let the child experience and sense the enchantment of the forest firsthand. Visoko supports generational work.
Visoko's customers can participate in supporting the diverse nature by purchasing the Silence products of the online store. The object is confirmed annually.

In Vivoko, the first cup at the forest tea ceremony is poured into nature.
Environmental responsibility and responsibility are an important part of Visoko's ethics. Vivoko respects man and nature. Visoko's founder sees fostering a nature connection as an important way to increase the will to protect nature and, at the same time, human well-being. Tuija Brax, Secretary General of the World Health Organization (WHO), says well in the Heart Journal 3/2020. Taking a child into the wild is the best climate action a person can do, and the actual generational act is to take a grandchild or a loan child into the forest. When a person goes concretely into nature, he maintains a connection and a desire to protect nature. They want to preserve what's beautiful.
Climate change and nature loss are a threat to our health
It is widely known that climate change is a threat to our security, our economy and the future of our grandchildren. Less is combined with the impact of climate change on health. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the world and Europe's leading heart federations have been studying this for a long time. It is known that the work of mitigating climate change is also a health act. In the wider picture, climate change threatens our health as increasing viral and bacterial diseases, diseases caused by heat, rain, floods and storms, and health threats. There are many indirect effects. In Finland, when temperatures move on both sides of zero in winter, it affects ever-increasing falls. Our building stock, which is prone to moisture damage, will be severely affected by climate change and will therefore also be a health threat.
The coronavirus epidemic is also linked to climate change. Climate change accelerates the loss of biodiversity This is reflected in species deaths, which predispose animals to dangerous viral epidemics that migrate to humans, such as the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Where the eaver swallows went
For allergy sufferers, longer pollen seasons bring health problems. Climate change affects the health of people with long-term illnesses such as coronary heart disease and hypertension. Patients with severe flap failure or heart failure will be tested for blood circulation. As climate change progresses, temperatures rise and heat cycles get longer.
Biodiversity is a lifeline for the natural ecosystem and people. The effects of the pollinator deficit on food production can only be a sidesproduction in the big picture. Without suitable pollinators, the number of cleansing and preventing erosion decreases. Insects are nourishment for many animals, such as birds. For example, the number of eason swallows has plummeted by more than 40% in four decades. The cause is suspected to be a reduction in just the right insect food. The disappearance of pollinators is a disaster not only for nature, but also for humans, since 75% of crops need insect pollination. The world's food production will be jeopardised if the number of pollinators continues. In Germany and great Britain, we can already talk about outright pollinator loss. The decrease in harvests is already visible in Finland. For example, oilseed rapeseed and rapeseed yields have been reduced since the beginning of 1990 l. Black wine berries and cumin yields have also started to decline. Without pollinators, our diet will be one-sided. We're going to have to use vitamins to make up for this.
I often forget for hours my favorite place under swamps and big trees. I love the smell of swamps, moss and silence. The dream beyond others is to add love and understanding to the world that it is our people's job to protect and protect nature. We can't survive without nature.

Add beauty to your life. Make every ritual of your chore
You can choose unique and unique things to live every moment. Just as everyone in the natural ecosystem has their own place and time, so do we humans create our own reality and unique story at every moment. Each drop of rain rain rains down on its own unique location.
Every human being has inalienable dignity. Man is part of nature. Every person has the right to enjoy life, provided that he does not harm nature and at the same time does not offend others.
Man is part of wise nature
The concept of uniqueness can manifest itself and become a reality through man's own inner world. Once you understand your own uniqueness, the divineness in you becomes a reality and you can live on trust. This requires full acceptance and love of yourself. You can't compare what's unique to anything.
We easily forget that we are unique and unique creations. We are trying to realise a caricature created by society that mimics the schem, grey and masses of what an ideal person is like. We humans have created rules, constraints, beliefs, formulas and laws around us that we live by. This can make life routine, performing, grey and meaningless.
Life is choices – every moment
When you let go and live in the rhythm of nature, confidence in your own experience and knowledge increases. This is not done by force squeezing, but by listening to yourself and your own body. Life becomes clearer when you make every chore a ritual, you focus on what you're doing. Learn how to recognize what your body needs for nutrition, mind and soul to refresh, and what kind of knowledge and skills you need to do the job in passing.
Listening to your own emotions, the weak signals of the body, awareness of your own wisdom and strength increases. Spend more and more time in pure nature. In nature, you open up to your own wisdom. In nature, you always get accepting and loving interaction. You can add beauty to your own life, going into the forest, being in nature. Nature gives a lot, but doesn't ask for anything.
This is what you can do by directing gratitude and awareness of your thoughts. You can choose your own attitude and your own actions, that's all. Do I choose the world of love or fear? The most important question a man can ask himself is, "Is this a friendly universe?" -Albert Einstein
