We empower informed choices for healthier cosmetics.
Our long-time effort is to create an independent community of laymen and experts under the roof of GreenGate. This unique environment educates and helps to understand the composition of cosmetics, cleaning, washing and laundry products. It provides information on the impact of harmful substances on human health and our environment. We believe that changing the approach of our society is possible.
GreenGate is a comprehensive portal about cosmetic and drugstore products and their ingredient risk. The GreenGate platform offers a 12-chapter online course on switching to greener cosmetics and what to avoid when choosing cosmetics. The portal shows many activities (apps, e-book, blog, DIY videos, materials for educators, etc.) and recommends content to users that solves their unique problems. The content is available in 4 languages (EN, CZ, SK, SI).
The GreenGate project is financed by the European Union within the Erasmus+ project, although the grant does not cover all project costs. If the “message” of the project resonates with you and you would like to support its development with an idea, help or financial donation, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Environmental education for companies, schools, and the public. We are enthusiasts, volunteers and, above all, humans. We want to understand society and nature. Our surroundings are not indifferent to us. We move forward, create new things, and wish to be helpful. Our core value is freedom of choice and the right to information for everyone. We are all about products being safe for people to use, health and ecological sustainability of life on our planet. A change in the direction of our society is possible.
Online course, Platform concept and wireframe
Our primary focus areas are designing and developing e-learning courses and providing and developing our LMS system Competent. We’ve successfully delivered over 50 online educational projects, including an awarded course about climate change for People in Need (one of Czechia’s biggest NGOs). It helped nearly two thousand teachers understand climate change and prepared them to teach about it.

Živica is an NGO that inspires change. We want to create a world where everyone is encouraged to seek their own nature. We believe that nature can teach us a lot. Environmental problems challenge us to turn our attention to our actions because changing problems only from the surface is not a globally sustainable long-term solution.
