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. With a lot of passion and cross-generational expertise the "Dorfkäserei Pötzelsberger" is producing more than 10 different cheese types, each one with an individual flavour. 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. So let's go to the village cheese dairy in Adnet and try all the different [...]
As promised we start this week with the portraits of our regional suppliers and start with: Trausners Genusswerkstatt in Mauterndorf, Lungau Salzburg Eva-Maria and Walter Trausner produce together with their team and endless passion in their own family-run business tasty jam, delicious fruit jelly cubes and their infamous Enzo-lemonade. Only ingredients which come from house gardens, selected fruit growers or directly from the harvest from the "Biosphärenpark Lungau" are used for the products of the "Genusswerkstatt". They themselves say: Our supplier? It's the nature. Those condiments are getting refined by beet sugar from Austria, so actually all used substances are regional procured. Since over 10 years, the Trausners Family and their team are doing what they love the most and what they know best: fabricate new creations with a lot of love, which are not only super tasty but also regionally and substainably produced. The goal of the family business is to work in accordance with the nature, to protect her and to spoil us with the most delicious creations. Starting from strawberry-lavender marmalade through gentian-syrup to peppermint fruit jelly cubes, the "genusswerkstatt" lives up to it's name. And didn't just capture our hearts but also our tummies :) For more information [...]

Travelling with a good feeling At Boutiquehotel Stadthalle our guests have been sleeping with a clear conscience for a long time. Acting sustainably in daily life is a matter of course since 2 generations. ZERO-ENERGY BALANCE The expansion of our cozy Vienna Boutiquehotel makes us very proud. Our new building is not only the perfect addition to the existing, thoughtfully renovated period town house, but it maintains a zero-energy balance as well. It means that in the course of a year our Boutiquehotel creates the same amount of energy that we require to run it. For this, we only use renewable energy sources like 130m² solar and 93m² photovoltaic panels, ground water heat pump. But that was not enough for us and we wanted that our guests are able to stay with us climate neutral. Our ecological footprint has been calculated with 163 tons per year. We will be able to compensate this amount in cooperation with the team of Zukunftswerk in the next 2 years. PROJECT WIND POWER Due to our interest in wind energy we have chosen a project in India. The certificates are extraordinary (Standard UN CER - United Nations Certified Emission Reductions). This climate protection project [...]
5 simple tips for a zero waste lifestyle Zero Waste is a sustainable concept which got more and more attention in the past years, but what does it actually mean? The meaning of Zero Waste is just as simple as waste prevention and the Zero Waste movement boycotts the unnecessary waste production in our society: their goal is to live completly without producing waste. And that is for sure the right approach because an EU-citizen produces in average around 500 kg of waste a year - an alarming number which clearly shows: we need to do something against this excessive waste production because it damages us and our environment enormously! But isn't a life without any waste a huge effort? The answer is very clear: No, it's actually pretty easy and it can also be a lot of fun. That's why we compiled 5 tips for you to prevent producing waste in different situations and do something good for you, the society and the environment :) 1.Shop packaging-free The packaging waste which we bring home from shopping is mostly the biggest part of the waste we produce. But this is something you can change very easily: use fabric/ paper bags instead [...]
