Because an intact and diverse environment is close to our hearts, we are continuing our commitment to biodiversity this year with the "Butterfly Pasture" campaign.
Our insects are the basis for a functioning and balanced ecosystem. Nevertheless, their diversity and continued existence are massively threatened:
This is where we become active!
With the "Butterfly Pasture" campaign, we are not only creating an additional 2,000 square meters of flower meadow at the new building of the company headquarters in Winterbach, but we also want to give each of us an impetus to become active ourselves.
That is why we are distributing 35,000 packets of seed-proof organic "butterfly pasture" for your own insect paradise at home as part of our new refill bag campaign sets.
We will report here and of course on Facebook and Instagram about the development of our new heart project.
It's worth taking a look!
Autumn has now also arrived at our beneficial insect and butterfly pasture and the last sunflowers have faded. In order to continue to offer a home to the many insects that enjoyed the blossoms in summer, strengthened themselves and settled there, we simply leave all faded flowers, wild herbs and grasses! After all, these not only provide great winter hiding places for various insects, but also an important food source. The seed stalks of our sunflowers also provide an important food source for birds, small mammals and insects.
But leaving the plants standing also has tangible benefits for us humans! Since our pastures have all been planted with seed-proof seeds, we simply have to wait next spring to see what will bloom again. We are already looking forward to the colorful splendor!
By the way, our organic seeds are seed-proof seeds from our organic seed specialist Samen Maier in Austria.
The seed bag is enough for a butterfly paradise of about 1 - 2 square meters - with meadow sage, Malva sylvestris, sweet pea, marigold, baby's breath, celandine, red campion, carnation, whorled sage, safflower, and asters.
Simply crumble the soil in the garden, flower pot or balcony box nice and small, sprinkle the seeds sporadically on top and cover lightly with soil, press down and water carefully and keep slightly moist. Then all we need is patience and sun.
By the way, the bag is made of grass paper. Unlike pure paper made of wood fiber, grass paper not only saves water and energy, but also produces significantly less CO2 emissions. It is disposed of with the waste paper.
With the promotional sets, we continue to pursue the topic of resource conservation and avoidance of packaging waste:
With the new refill bags for our Bathroom Cleaner and Glass&Window Cleaner, we save over 80% plastic compared to the spray bottle. This makes them real environmental heroes.
In addition: Our glass and window cleaner was rated VERY GOOD across the board by ÖKOTEST in the April 2021 issue, making it the TEST WINNER.
