A KERBHOLZ INITIATIVE FOR OUR PLANET

With our initiative ONE FOR THE PLANET we donate 1€ with every purchase of a KERBHOLZ product to an organization you can choose. Join us now, you are one click away from environmental protection!

We're living in a time in which school or even kindergarten children have to participate in a movement to stand up for a better future. The awareness that children walk the streets and shout 'Stop denying, the world is dying!' has led us to do more. Do more for the next generations, do more for our environment, do more for our planet. That's why we teamed up with three organizations which have different approaches, but one goal: to protect our planet.

You can support our ONE FOR THE PLANET initiative with just one click in the checkout process of your purchase.

ONE EARTH - ONE OCEAN E.V.

With your purchase in our online shop 5 kilograms of plastic will be collected in cooperation with the ONE EARTH, ONE OCEAN E.V. Currently they are using small boats (SeeHamster & SeeKuh) to clean up different waters around the world. In the future, their ‘Marine Litter Cleanup’ will perform direct recycling on the open sea.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE TO OTHER CLEAN-UPS?

With the new recycling ship called SeeElefant, plastic can be converted into sulphur-free heating oil, a recyclable version of plastic and energy for the ship's operational processes. Sounds great, doesn't it? We think the idea of a Marine Litter Cleanup is awesome and therefore want to work closely with ONE EARTH, ONE OCEAN E.V. to free our oceans and the inhabitants from plastic garbage.

BIENENRETTER E.V. 

With every KERBHOLZ product purchased, two square meters of wildflower meadow are plant in cooperation with the BIENENRETTER E.V.

WHY PLANT A FLOWER MEADOW TO SAVE THE BEES?

Bees need flowers to survive, because flower pollen are important for the nutrition of the bee brood and the younger bees. The nectar provides the necessary energy to fly - it is like fuel for bees. Since many meadows are already mown before flowering, bee food is also destroyed. The consequences are malnutrition and an earlier death of the bee. The BIENENRETTER e.V. does not only plant flower meadows, but also worries about:

  • - ongoing educational projects about sustainable developments and biological variety,
  • - the colonisation and care of honey bees, as well as
  • - arrangements for the protection of wild bees in the city.
  •  

WHY IS THIS PROJECT SO IMPORTANT TO US?

A single bee colony can pollinate three million flowers a day, making the bee a key contributor to our ecological balance. Bees are the "high-performance multipliers" of everything that blooms. Without bees, the world would look grey – no one wants that.

 

PLANT FOR THE PLANET FOUNDATION

With every KERBHOLZ product you buy, the foundation "Plant-for-the-Planet" plants a tree in your name. One big tree produces about 10-15 kilogram oxygen per hour as a waste product during photosynthesis - the air for about 10 people.

ONE TEAM: KERBHOLZ & PLANT FOR THE PLANET

Since 2007, the global movement of children and teenagers has pursued the great goal of planting one trillion trees all over the world. This way, we want to work together with you to offset our CO2 emissions and make a joint contribution against climate change! For a secure future for younger generations.
For a better planet.

And that's why we will help Plant for the Planet to reach their goal - together with you!
