Sustainability is an essential component of our corporate culture.
Sustainability and “green thinking” play a very important role in our company and at all levels of the production process.
This starts with the fact that we only offer glass balls and no plastic balls. Glass is a natural product (it consists of 70% sand!) and of course more sustainable than plastic. Please note that our glass baubles are also very stable. This is because we use machines to print on the glass balls and they have to withstand a lot.
Carefully made and packaged
We also attach great importance to an environmentally friendly production and only purchase raw materials and packaging materials from Germany or Europe.
It goes without saying that we meet all legal requirements for product and work safety as well as production safety.
In addition, we take great care to continuously save electricity and water and to avoid waste.
Basically, the packaging of our Christmas baubles is also always to be seen as a “storage option”. Christmas baubles have the nice side effect that they are practically never simply thrown away or disposed of.
Every year after Christmas they are repacked and stored for the next Christmas.
This circumstance is also due to the fact that Christmas baubles are highly emotional.
Since the end of 2010, we have been using solar power, which is produced by the photovoltaic systems on our hall roofs.
In this way, we generate around 40 percent of our electricity requirements from renewable sources and save a good 840 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. We purchase the remaining electricity as bio-electricity.
At home in Germany
We see ourselves as a traditional German, medium-sized company.
For us, this also includes producing locally and thus strengthening Germany as a place to work and do business. The mutual appreciation of the employees was already important to the company founders. It makes an important contribution to a pleasant working atmosphere in which new ideas can grow.
