Primeval forests in Germany

Nature is very close to our hearts. In addition to our WalkInTrashOut campaign, since the beginning of 2022 we have been supporting the Green Forest Fund, which works to preserve our natural environment in Germany. We regularly donate trees, virgin forest, sustainable bee pastures and habitat for birds. And we do this in Germany so that future generations can also experience the beauty of our homeland.

Donated primeval forest, bee pasture and habitat for birds so far: 20 square meters
Donated trees so far: 4 trees for one year CO₂ compensation
