What is the difference of Klooker with organizations like Ethical Consumer?
A big difference is that Klooker enables her members to try sustainable products by ALWAYS negotiating a DISCOUNT on these products.
In addition, Klooker brings information together from several organizations like Ethical Consumer, Rank a Brand etc. This saves you time researching.
Last but least, compared with Ethical Consumer we don't do boycots. We don't publish magazines. We do not consult companies. We focus our energy solely on researching and highlighting sustainable products and arranging discounts.
So our members can more easily buy sustainable products instead of the unsustainable variants.
Is there a difference between the three subscriptions?
No, they are all identical content wise. The only difference is the discount %. You can get more discount for subscriptions with longer time intervals.
How come I've never heard of Klooker before?
Well.... because we only just got started in the UK! We are already up and running in the Netherlands since our low-profile start in November 2016.
Probably you'll see us more often in the coming months!
How many other people are joining?
Since our start in The Netherlands, we signed up thousands of members and gained more than 15.000 Facebook followers. In the UK we just started out, and we already have our first group of British members!
As a result, our impact & leverage grows exponentially, which is a good thing for all of us (and for the world)!
What does Klooker mean?
The name 'Klooker' can be traced back to the old Germanic 'klook', which means 'wise' or 'smart'. In short, a name covering our basics!
Can I trust Klooker?
Once in a while, we get an email asking us whether Klooker is 'legit'. It is an understandable question, as Klooker just opened shop.
Klooker is a reliable 'normal' company. We have already partnered with many leading sustainable shops in The Netherlands and a few in the UK. The more, the merrier!
You can always reach us via +44 7520 636997 or a direct message on Facebook in Klooker UK.
Klooker is registered and based in Enschede, The Netherlands, with the chamber of commerce number 62546252.
Why is Klooker not for free?
Klooker wants to make honest and sustainable products mainstream asap. Getting retailers to lower their pricing will contribute a lot. Everyone likes lower prices (especially the Dutch, but maybe you too!).
The best way to do so is to avoid commission fees from retailers, and instead to ask them to apply those fees for discounts for Klooker members. So prices can often be substantially lowered.
If we didn't charge you, we would need to get paid by the retailer. But then we would weaken the incentive for our members to start trying a sustainable product.
And we lose impact.
That said: prices are reasonable. A cup of coffee per month. We feel that this should be affordable for almost all consumers. Very transparent, very fair.
How is my subscription fee going to be used?
We are a social enterprise. We use the fees in two ways: 1. to cover our expenses (which it doesn't yet fully do, by the way 😉) and 2. to grow the Klooker community.
The faster we grow, the more of an impact we generate. That's the ultimate goal of Klooker.
(Btw... do you want to help Klooker grow? Then share us on Facebook, via email or talk about us with your friends, family and colleagues. That will contribute a lot!)
Who is the founder of Klooker?
Hi, I am Dennis Kamst. I am the owner and founder of Klooker. I am a father, entrepreneur, IT director, poet and a lover of life! Nice to see you here!
I am supported by a small team to help Klooker grow.
Can I easily cancel my subscription?
Yes, you can (but we'll miss you 😩)...
When you send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, your subscription stops immediately.
That's all it takes.
Can I first try Klooker before subscribing?
We don't offer a 'free trial' right now (because it's a bit complicated for a small company like Klooker)
What you could do... is subscribe AND send Klooker an email on email@example.com stating that you want to stop the subscription. Then after the period you paid for, your subscription ends, and you can decide whether to get a new one or not.
Can I recommend a product myself?
Yes, you can!
We are working hard to create a Klooker community, so that you can contact other Klooker members and exchange ideas, tips, etc. But also to recommend products. When you have become a member, you can join the Klooker UK Community.
You can also send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your tips and ideas. That also helps!
I like Klooker, but I cannot afford it. What to do now?
We offer Klooker for a price we believe is affordable for almost all. Right now, that's the best we can do.
What you could do... is skip one cup of coffee per month! That would already be enough.
How can I contribute to Klooker?
Do you like Klooker and do you want to help us? The easiest way is to become a member and invite your friends, family or colleagues to join as well. It helps us in several ways:
- You are making the Klooker community grow. We gain strength, so we jointly get more impact.
- You'll help us cover our costs. Without that, we will fade away...
- In the end, your buying behaviour makes the difference! The more "good" products you buy..., the more you help the world.
