Markets with beeGoodies beeswax cloths

Markets with beeGoodies beeswax cloths

Just a year ago, we all met regularly at the Hamburg markets in the midst of a huge crowd to buy our first Christmas presents.

This year everything is different, but many organisers remain positive and make the best of it. So now we meet in the net!

We have created a small overview where you can “meet” us in autumn.

hello handmade comes to your home this year!

There will be a big online pop-up market on 7th and 8th November 2020 including live stream and printed catalogue! You can find explanations here:

Einladung an alle Besucher zum hello handmade Markt 2020

 

In September the “Besonders Markt” had a Shop Local Day with findeling and also offers our products in its own shop: especially different at Hellkamp 60 in HH-Eimsbüttel, opening hours: Thu-Sat 12-18 o’clock or Fri already from 10:00 o’clock. The next analogue special market is planned for 14 February 2021.

The market at Millerntor will also take place this year with online activities. A similar date for 2021 has already been fixed for 9 October 2021

And indeed, 2 live markets will take place in October:

beeGoodies – tried and true from “granny’s times”

beeGoodies – tried and true from “granny’s times”

We are constantly thinking about new product ideas.

And there are indeed so many tried and tested things that still work today and are worth reviving.

Now new: Our beeWashy soap holder

The BeeWashy soap holder was developed especially for beeGoodies in the Schleswiger Werkstätten and is handmade there. Coated with rag oil it is dirt and water repellent and fits in every bathroom. Simply stick it on the back, adhesive tape is already on the product. The supplied soap is provided with a recycled crown cap. It smells wonderfully of lemongrass and was developed by us together with Bettina Piel from Seifendealer. Grain and marigold blossoms give the soap an unmistakable structure. But also any other soap can be used – just push in a crown cap. The gift set also contains a beeswax cloth with which the soap can also be used when travelling. […]

beeGoodies – How to repair Your Superbag

The Superbag can also be “freshly ironed” again

Ironing the Superbag requires a little practice, but with a few tips from us you’ll surely get the job done!

Have you already watched the repair video. If not, it would be helpful to do that first.

The difficulty with the bag is that it is sewn together, you have to work fast and not be afraid of a little waxy fingers 😉 […]

beeGoodies – DIY tips for cleaning at home

beeGoodies – DIY tips for cleaning at home

Replace some cleaning agents or do it yourself!

Some cleaning agents in the household can actually be replaced, used more sparingly or even made by yourself. Some even work better, but in any case you save money and packaging. And in any case you do something for our environment.

  • 9-component rinse aid for the dishwasher can simply be replaced with white vinegar.
  • You can mix 1 tablespoon of soda, 2 drops of essential oil of your choice, 1 glass of water and 1 glass of vinegar to make a surface cleaner. It is best to fill it into a spray bottle. Durability unlimited or until the bottle is empty!
  • You can even make flea remedies for your pet yourself with 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 glass of water. Rub 3 minutes with the mixture, let it soak for at least 15 minutes or simply brush it out as soon as it is dry.
  • Pots and pans can be cleaned with a vegetable cleaning pad made of horsetail, as this plant contains silicic acid. To do this, weave a handful of horsetail-spear in such a way as to create a square that can be used to scrub metal and pots. If you don’t find any horsetail-plant yourself, simply order “fake bamboo” from a florist.

The background knowledge:

In Europe, soda is made from sodium hydrocarbonate, which in turn is made from sea salt, chalk, coal and ammonia. This fine powder is a great all-purpose product, because it is biodegradable, even in water. […]

or Reduce & Reuse

We don’t throw anything away!

Cloths that are not cut well will fall through our quality control for the 2/3 and Family sets, but of course we don’t just throw them away, we make them to:

  • BottleCaps, approx. 10 x 15 cm, which can be used for closing bottles, but also for e.g. avocados in cut or yoghurt cups.
  • From the left-overs of the BottleCaps again we spin our fire balls 😉! Because of the wax, this little ball can be used as spark for your campfire. One ball burns for about 5 minutes.

If you order 3 beeGoodies products in our online shop, you will currently receive 5 additional fire balls – until stocks lasts.

But we also try to reduce packaging and waste in our own household as much as possible and to use things several times, so not only Reduce but also Reuse.

What are the possibilities for Reuse?

  • Recup cups: RECUP is the Germany-wide reusable deposit system for coffee-to-go cups. Here you can find more information: https://recup.de/sogehts The cups are partly available with city names and individual designs and at many places like gas stations etc. you can even get your coffee cheaper in them.
  • Reusable nets for weighing fruit and vegetables in the supermarket, because attention! Bags made of “bioplastics” are also not an alternative! https://www.umweltbundesamt.de/themen/tueten-aus-bioplastik-sind-keine-alternative The term “bioplastics” can mean two things: biobased, i.e. made from renewable raw materials, and/or biodegradable. In fact, not every plastic made from renewable raw materials is biodegradable. Conversely, not all biodegradable plastics are made from renewable raw materials. But even bags made of biodegradable plastic can pollute nature for longer than many people think.
  • Upcycling is also a form of reuse. On Youtube, Instagram and Pinterest there are many ideas for making new modern clothes from worn clothing with a few simple steps. Or to convert them: Socks can be used as cell phone holders while jogging. T-shirts become shopping bags, shirts perhaps gift “paper”? Tins become flower pots and much more.

We ask for your ideas!

Why don’t you try what you can implement in your life and send us more ideas for upcycling and reuse – plus pic. The most creative ideas will be published on Instagram and we will raffle off a drying rack from beeGoodies among the submissions until the end of May 2020, which you can use again and again.

In the next blog post we will take up the topic of household helpers like in grandma’s time.
