For us it is clear that "green thinking" is very important. We have therefore drawn up a sustainability concept and regularly question other points. Our ecological footprint should not only be small, but even positive.
For every bottle garden sold, we plant a tree.
Through our partner organization Ecologi, we help with the reforestation of various tree projects across our planet. You can do our commitment here track live. You can find more information in our blog post.
When choosing the breeders we not only went for the quality, but also for how sustainable the operation of the breeders to be led. Our plants come from certified breeders with sustainable ecological cultivation (MPS A+, MPS GAP, MPS SQ, MPS ECAS), who treat people and the environment responsibly.
We use safe, environmentally friendly and innovative packaging that can be optimally recycled. We use natural or recycled paper with FSC™ certification for the printed matter.
Our shipping carton is made of recycled paper and belongs in the blue paper bin for recycling.
plastic bagOur plants are kept moist during transport by a "fresh bag". Our plastic bags for plants and material are made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and belong in the yellow recycling bin. PE is a thermoplastic and can be recycled infinitely. PE contains no plasticizers and consists of 100% carbon and hydrogen. No toxic gases and no toxic waste water are produced during the production of PE.
Except for our JAR series, all glasses come from a family-run glass manufacturer and are handmade from recycled glass.
ceramicWith the new CERA series, it was also important to us to keep the distances to production as short as possible. That's why we decided on a ceramic manufacturer with a long tradition from Brandenburg, where the ceramic bowls are made by hand.
Our headquarters in Berlin are heated in a climate-neutral manner using a combination of geothermal energy and green electricity.
CO2 compensation certificates are purchased for each employee to neutralize the CO2 footprint.
