About ReSpek Nature

ReSpek Nature Carbon Offset

ReSpek Nature on Shopify provides a trusted platform that allows any consumer to offset their carbon emissions with a click.

ReSpek Nature offers an opportunity for your customers to neutralize the carbon impact of their purchase. The installation is automatic, with no technical skills required, making it simple for you the merchant. For the customer, it's a single click to contribute. Their contribution is added to their total, and billing is handled automatically by Shopify - no admin hassle for the merchant.

The spekboom is considered a miracle plant that is endemic to the Eastern Cape Karoo region, South Africa. The tough and hardy shrub is considered one of the best plants in the world to absorb carbon from the atmosphere.

ReSpek Nature has access to hundreds of hectares of land that can be planted out with spekboom. The plant itself nurtures biodiversity, binds and locks nutrients into the soil, holds water in its stems and leaves, and restores the indigenous thicket. The plant has been known to live to up to 300 years.

The app was a breeze to install and the support from ReSpek was fast and effective. What a great way for our customers to further offset their carbon. We especially appreciate the fact that Spekboom is endemic to the areas where ReSpek is planting it.


Clearly our customers see the value of using ReSpek, as most contribute to this worthy initiative. Thank you for improving our customers shopping experience. Highly recommended.
