When you put your money into a Mirlo project, this is what you get back:
1. You create a different world. No matter whether you make a big or a small donation, we are changing the nature of the footprint that we leave on our planet every single day. It’s happening, and you’re making it happen.
2. You will receive a certificate as to the footprint that you have left. This certificate is guaranteed by us and by the other institutions involved in the project.
3. We’ll tell you all about what’s happening. We want you to experience what it means to be recovering nature. We are creating a legacy and you are part of it. We want you to enjoy it.
4. And there’s lots more! Sometimes you’ll be able to come and directly take part in the project. Watch out for the bulletins we send out whenever such an opportunity arises. We are also looking for special conditions such as in the Corona Forestal, where we have managed to ensure that the zones we plant will be preserved as forests for the next 180 years.
If you want more detailed information, please have a look at our general terms and conditions.
1º) We respect your rights as a client, in full compliance with the law. In the Terms and Conditions section you can consult aspects relating to the performance of the projects, refunds, customer service and personal data protection.
2º) We are transparent in how we use money. We regularly update you as to how the projects’ and Mirlo’s accounts are progressing and what we are doing with the money we bring in. You can find this information in our web, in the section dedicated to each project and in the “About us” section.
3º) We keep you informed as to the guarantees and risks inherent in each project. Working with nature is a complex business and we want to be honest as to the limits of our ability to meet our objectives. Find out all the details about each project, in the risks and guarantees documentation.
We're not an NGO and we're not a trust, so currently under Spanish law as far as individuals are concerned it's not possible to claim tax relief on any contributions you make to Mirlo Positive Nature.
If you are a company, it is possible to get tax relief if you include your contribution to Mirlo as a communication service, of as part of your corporate responsibility policy. Ask your tax advisor.
The inspiration for our name comes from a little bird called the "mirlo capiblanco". In English it's known as the Ring Ouzel. Well this little bird flies every year from the north of Europe to the Canary Islands, and when it gets there, it helps to spread the seeds of the Canary Island cedar tree, which is a local species that is very much under threat at the moment.
The concept "Positive Nature" has a double meaning: on the one hand, it refers to the positive footprint we want to leave on nature; on the other hand it refers to the positive nature of the members of our team and all our collaborators, and that means you too! Because we're all positive by nature.
We need to find new ways of generating wealth and prosperity. Most business models are based on generating products or services that one way or another degrade the environment. Downsizing, reusing and recycling are not in themselves enough to achieve a sustainable world that can provide shelter for the nine billion human beings that will be living on it by 2050, without devastating the ecosystems that support us.
We believe that new business models have to be found that, as we do, naturally create a positive footprint on the environment. That’s what the “mirlo capiblanco” does, an economy that lives by leaving positive footprint on the world. One that generates a natural world that can provide shelter for more life.
