Green gifts for Christmas – Part 2

This week we are introducing part 2 of our Advent calendar with gift ideas for Christmas presents. Like last week’s gifts, this weeks are made with upcycled or recycled materials as well. You’ve probably heard of the tons of trash take-away coffee cups are responsible for each year. Each year 100 Billion coffee cups are thrown away. The alternatives are often made of plastic which can contain plasticisers. And these can be dangerous for our health. But you can get a great alternative: the Ecoffee Cup. The cup isn’t only a lightweight with only 125g but also very robust. It is made exclusively from natural organic bamboo fibre. A stylish backpack made from canvas and organic leather. Yes, we have that. The backpack “Michelle” is available in the FairTrade Shop and is manufactured under ecological circumstances. The eco-leather is made from nuts, fruits and barks. The irregularities in the leather show that it is a real natural product. Nowadays you should always have one at hand. It is an everyday companion, small, lightweight and practical. And usually it’s sorely missed when lost. Exactly, the usb stick. Usually though the practical companion is made of plastic and unfortunately it’s the reason [...]

This week we like to introduce one of our most important suppliers: Sonnberg – Austria's biggest organic butchery, Unterweißenbach im Mühlviertel, OÖ Over 10 years ago the cooperation between the manager Manfred Huber and the butchery Wolfgang Fürst in Unterweißenbach began. Together, they found the company Sonnberg Biofleisch GmbH. At the same time they converted the manufacturing into 100% organic. Since 2010, the butchery is Austria’s largest 100% organic meat processor. Sonnberg stands for honesty, gusto and Austrian origin. The basis is respectful, species-appropriate farming in rural organic farms and if possible a hassle-free transportation of the animals to the butchery, which is the requirement for the excellent taste of their organic meat and sausage products. The butchery purchases its meat exclusively from organic, sustainable Austrian farmers. At the manufacturing stage, Sonnberg puts special emphasis on natural ingredients and foregoes flavour enhancers and artificial colourings. The spices used are 100% organic as well. But not only are the products organic. The manufacturing takes place with a lot of environmental awareness. To keep the production eco-friendly and sustainable, Sonnberg uses biomass, photovoltaics and the latest ventilation and cooling technology. If you want to get an impression of the butchery, you can [...]

Here comes the third regional supplier in our portrait-line: Biohof Fink, Grafendorf in the "Steiermark" Since 1975 the Biohof Fink is focussing on biological agriculture. The belief of the family-run farm in the region "Steiermark", to work in a completely organic way was already strong back then, when "biological agriculture" wasn't in the mindsets of other farmers in the region yet. The big vision behind is the production of natural food, which saves the ground, the water and the environment. Because the motto at Biohof Fink is: Healthy ground, healthy plants, healthy food, healthy people :) As a pioneer in biological agriculture the Biohof Fink doesn't only sell it's freshly harvested fruits and vegetables to wholesalers, markets, market driver and large kitchens, but you can also get seasonal fruits/ vegetables every 7 or 14 days for your private household in the Bio Power Box, which will be delivered directly to your home. Of course there are different sizes of the Bio Power Box available and it can be matched to the costumers' preferences. A particular specialty of the Biohof Fink are the self produced, crispy and unbelievably tasty apple chips. The fresh apples of the farm are dryed without any artificial [...]

Here comes the second portrait of our regional suppliers: Dorfkäserei Pötzelsberger, Adnet in Salzburger Land For 120 years already the Pötzelsberger family is producing organic cheese through traditional cheese dairy method exclusively from natural raw milk and organic additives. The family run business in the "Salzburger Land" is working closely together with the Adneter dairy farmers, who decided to manage their agriculture sustainable. What does it mean? Economize in harmony with nature and operate within the initial circulation of land, plants, animals and humans. Without chemical fertilizer or long transportation routes. And because of the species-appropriate animal-rearing and feeding of the dairy cows the raw milk has an enormous high nutritional value. And benefits the environment.

Starting from a "flowery" cheese through an exotic "spicy" one with chilli to the classic one "Magdalenenkäse" you will find not only kind employees in the "Kaslad'n" but also additional home-made natural products from the cheese dairy and different specialties from the agriculture of the Adnet farmers.
