Bye Bye Plastik

This is the motto of Bye Bye Plastik gUG (haftungsbeschränkt), based on Sylt. Founded in 2019 by Carin Winkler and Heike Werner. They encourage companies as well as restaurants, associations, authorities and private individuals to rethink – and to switch away from plastic to sustainable alternatives. As a private person you can become a “Believer” and as a company you can be awarded the “Changemaker cerification”.

Finally! The new GOTS fabrics are here.

It has been a long time from the visit to the cotton fields to the delivery of the new fabrics, but now the first coated cloths are in the warehouse waiting to be sent out.

GOTS? What does that actually mean?

Global Organic Textile Standard

The seal holder is Global Standard gemeinnützige GmbH, which was founded by the International Working Group on Global Organic Textile Standards. This is an association of various organisations that are committed to environmentally sound and socially responsible textile production.


The aim of the label is to establish a globally uniform, controllable, social and ecological standard that covers the entire production chain of textiles and makes it traceable. The focus is on the use of chemicals during production.

Good to know…

Textiles that consist of at least 70 percent organically produced natural fibres and meet the requirements may bear the GOTS seal (“made with x% organic”). From 95% organic content, the addition “organic” is awarded. Our cloths now meet this requirement in Standard 6.0 – the latest standard version.

All 5 new fabric samples are available in all sizes this time:

– 24 x 24 cm as a square to cover small/medium sized bowls

– 24 x 34 cm as a long format to wrap directly for a sandwich or perfect for cheese to keep in the fridge

– 35 x 35 cm as XXL cloth to cover e.g. large salad bowls

Have fun wrapping, covering and keeping fresh with beeGoodies!

A world without bees is unthinkable

A world without bees is unthinkable

The importance of bees as pollinators for biodiversity and food security is fundamental to humanity. The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 20 May as World Bee Day. In doing so, the global community is also highlighting the recognition of the decline in the world’s bee population and the urgent need to protect bees.

Why 20 May?

Anton Janscha was born on 20 May 1734 in Bresnica and was a Slovenian court beekeeper to Maria Theresa in Vienna. He is considered to be the inventor of the first frame method of beekeeping and was the rector of the world’s first modern beekeeping school. He is the author of numerous books on beekeeping and apiculture. In 2014, the Slovenian Beekeepers Association launched the World Bee Day Initiative with the support of the Government of Slovenia. With success: the United Nations proclaimed 20 May as UN World Bee Day in 2018.

No life without bees

We encounter their great achievements every day: bees provide our food and health. Their structures and social behaviour are drivers of innovation in technology and information technology for us. Hardly any other animal has accompanied human development for as long as the bee. In the long term, the protection and benefit of bees can help reduce poverty and hunger and maintain a healthy environment and biodiversity. Now, bees are in danger and so are the opportunities for sustainable development.

75 % of global food crops depend on pollination, especially by bees. For medicinal purposes alone, we now use over 50,000 bee-pollinated plant species. The honeycomb construction of bees has become indispensable in aviation and vehicle construction. The highly efficient collection method of the workers in a bee colony is, for example, a model in logistics processes, computer programmes and social networks.
