Social responsibility and a strong sense of environmental awareness are essential. We are convinced that these fundamental pre-requisites are the key to the long-term success of our company. And that is why our actions consider the future of our company, our customers and a society that is characterised by sustainability.
In addition to the responsible consumption of natural resources, we
use our very own electric company car for our business trips and daily
errands. Along with using compostable foils, we also take another important
step towards sustainability with our biodegradable to-go cups made of
quick-regenerating and renewable resources. Sustainable development
and orientation also play an important role when selecting the suppliers
and brands we work with. For example, many items in our assortment bear
the Fairtrade or UTZ seals, thereby supporting sustainable cocoa production.
After the campaign was so positively received during the past Christmas season, we have decided to once again run a charity fundraiser this year in favour of the Albert Schweitzer Children's Village in Waldenburg.
Up to seven children are taken in by and live with a village family (traumatised children who have suffered abuse and were separated from their parents). Here they live with children’s village parents and their biological children. All families live in their own house, cook, and support themselves independently. The children’s village families design their everyday life individually. Through the intensive time spent together, they develop a familial bond and relationship which gives the children stability and security.
Since the high social standards and sustainability put into practice
have impressed us so much, we will be donating part of the proceeds
from every Classic Wall Advent Calendar sold to the Albert Schweitzer
