ONE FOR THE PLANET - A KERBHOLZ INITIATIVE
We live in a time in which school or even kindergarten children have to participate in a movement to stand up for a better future. The awareness that children walk the streets and shout 'Stop denying, the world is dying!' has led us to do more. Do more for the next generations, do more for our environment, do more for our planet. That's why we teamed up with three organizations which have different approaches, but one goal: to protect our planet.
You can support our ONE FOR THE PLANET initiative with just one click in the checkout process of your purchase.
With every KERBHOLZ product you buy, we donate 1€ to an organization of your choice:
ONE EARTH, ONE OCEAN E.V.
With your purchase in our online shop 5 kilogram plastic will be collected in cooperation with the ONE EARTH, ONE OCEAN e.V.
Currently they are using small boats (SeeHamster & SeeKuh) to clean up different waters around the world. In the future, their ‘Marine Litter Cleanup’ will perform direct recycling on the open sea.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE TO OTHER CLEAN-UPS?
With the new recycling ship called SeeElefant, plastic can be converted into sulphur-free heating oil, a recyclable version of plastic and energy for the ship's operational processes. Sounds great, doesn't it? We think the idea of a Marine Litter Cleanup is awesome and therefore want to work closely with ONE EARTH, ONE OCEAN to free our oceans and the inhabitants from plastic garbage.
With every KERBHOLZ product purchased, two square meters of wildflower meadow are plant in cooperation with the BIENENRETTER E.V.
WHY PLANT A FLOWER MEADOW TO SAVE THE BEES?
Bees need flowers to survive, because flower pollen are important for the nutrition of the bee brood and the younger bees. The nectar provides the necessary energy to fly - it is like fuel for bees. Since many meadows are already mown before flowering, bee food is also destroyed. The consequences are malnutrition and an earlier death of the bee. The BIENENRETTER e.V. does not only plant flower meadows, but also worries about:
- - ongoing educational projects about sustainable developments and biological variety,
- - the colonisation and care of honey bees, as well as
- - arrangements for the protection of wild bees in the city.
WHY IS THIS PROJECT SO IMPORTANT TO US?
A single bee colony can pollinate three million flowers a day, making the bee a key contributor to our ecological balance. Bees are the "high-performance multipliers" of everything that blooms. Without bees, the world would look grey – no one wants that.
PLANT FOR THE PLANET FOUNDATION
With every KERBHOLZ product you buy, the foundation "Plant-for-the-Planet" plants a tree in your name.
This way, we want to work together with you to offset our CO2 emissions and make a joint contribution against climate change! For a secure future for younger generations. For a better planet.
ONE TEAM: KERBHOLZ & PLANT-FOR-THE-PLANET
Since 2007, the global movement of children and teenagers has pursued the great goal of planting trees all over the world. Children and teenagers? That's right! The organization was founded by Felix Finkbeiner, who was 9 years old at the time. He was only 13 years old when he delivered his speech to the United Nations at UN headquarters in New York and amazed everyone. There is really nothing left to say. Except: we would all like to be a bit more like Felix! ;-)
And that's why we will help Felix and his team to reach their goal - together with you!
