Together for the communities & the planet

Sustainability is an important part of our DNA. Every day we work together with our partners to become a little bit better. We rely on fair partnerships, sustainable production methods and social commitment - in the countries of origin as well as in Hamburg. Our commitment to our planet and its inhabitants drives us and accompanies us every step of the way, every product we develop and every cooperation we enter into.

Together with WeForest, we have set ourselves the goal of combating the climate crisis by protecting, maintaining and reforesting forests. The joint plan is to renature degraded forest areas in cooperation with the local population in a sustainable, fair and transparent manner and to protect them in the long term. Together we plant and care for 2,000 trees every year. Currently, in cooperation with WeForest, we support the reforestation of Brazil's Atlantic Forest in the state of São Paulo. WeForest is planting trees here in order to reunite the individual green fragments into a whole - thus creating new habitat for all highly endangered species.

Whenever possible, we avoid using plastic in the production of our products. But we want to do more than that: Together with our partner Plastic Bank, we collect 25 tons of plastic from nature every year - plastic that can no longer end up in the oceans. How? Together with Plastic Bank we make plastic so valuable that it is no longer worth throwing it away: The social enterprise Plastic Bank pays the population in developing and emerging countries money for their collected plastic waste, which is above the usual market value. The Plastic Bank recycles the reusable material in a recycling plant and resells it as "Social Plastic".
