ECOFRIENDLY TAKE-AWAY COFFEE

A foggy Monday morning in November. Leaving your comfortable warm duvet behind is terrible enough. Then a quick shower and off you go – whoa, how cold it is outside! You need to get yourself a hot cup of coffee to warm up. Understandable! But what about the paper cup and the plastic lid? It gets carelessly thrown away. According to the Deutsche Umwelthilfe (German Environmental Care) 2.8 billion coffee cups are used in Germany per year. That counts down to 7.6 million cups per Day, 320.000 per hour. Converted, every German uses 34 of those cups a year. A remarkable number and the reason for a lot of garbage. 40.000 tons of garbage can be traced back to take-away cups. But the problem is not the garbage alone. The production process for those cups swallows tons of resources every year. To meet the needs 43.000 trees are chopped down each year which are 64.000 tons of wood. Additionally, the manufacturing of the paper cups takes up a huge amount of water, round about 1.5 billion litres. And we still didn’t think about the lids. Those are made out of polystyrol. The fabrication is very costly and produces 111.000 tons [...]

Green Travel

The ecological footprint is something almost everybody knows. Especially on long car drives or flights the feeling, that this ecological footprint is growing with every kilometre, is very strong. And quite rightly: a flight form Zurich to Cyprus for example produces one tonne of CO2. But even though this is bad, nobody wants to miss a vacation and most destination can only be reached by airplane or a long car drive. The pleasure of traveling without the hassle of pollution  But there is a way to fight the guilty conscience against the environment: compensation payment. When you hear it for the first time, it might sound a little bit weird to you but actually it really does make sense. The way it works is really simple and logic: Users can calculate each flight or car drive with the correct distance and effect on the environment on a website. Then they can see what it costs to compensate for their emissions and have the chance to choose from different projects to support climate protection with their payments. Where to compensate?  There is a variety of different companies, who offer compensations payment. One of them is called myclimate. The Swiss Non-Profit Organisation […]

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.

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 [...]
