Blossom of trees important for the bees

Bees are very important in our food chain and that’s why today there is a lot of attention for the industrious peoples. We sometimes do not realize it, but thanks to their efforts we have many different food products. About 30% of our daily food needs depend on bees. Without bees, no apples, pears or prunes, no walnuts or almonds and no courgettes and peppers. We can also forget our daily cup of coffee.   The bees are having a hard time. Many wild bees disappear, which is a major problem for the pollination of plants and crops. To help the bees we can put plants and flowers in our gardens from which the bees can get their food.

promotional gift award 2016

Promotional Gift Award 2016
In the category Best Practice we won a prestigious international award: The promotional gift award! Together with our customer The Circular beach we have designed and produced a customized jute bag for the "De Grondstofjutters" project. To keep the Dutch beaches  clean, the circular beach bags have been  developed and are used to collect waste from the beaches. "Jutten" means "finding stranded goods" so the eco-friendly jute bags have a double meaning, which is underlined by the imprint. Beach combers can pick up a bag at a beach pavillion or restaurant, and during their walk they can collect the waste they come accross on the beach. The reward for bringing back a full bag is a cup of coffee or soup. The collected waste is...

Benefits of jute

Voordelen Jute
We would love to tell you all about jute. Jute is a vegetable fiber that can be spun into strong threads. Jute is one of the cheapest natural fibers and in addition, after cotton, the most widely used. The plants from which jute is obtained occurs mainly in hot, humid areas as Bangladesh, China and India. In the time it takes you to read this, millions of plastic bags are produced. And then we do not even know about the amount of oil that is needed. An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) survey from 2008 showed that only 6.8% of all plastic waste recycled. But what happens with the other 93.2%? Wastewater in oceans and seas consists of 80% plastic. This is a major threat to...

Nominated for PSI Sustainability Awards

Together with our client The Circular beach we have designed and produced a customized jute bag for the Project De Grondstofjutters project. The Dutch beaches are getting cleaner: the jute bags of Circular Beaches were developed for the collection of garbage in the Dutch coastal regions.

Beach visitors can pick up the bags at the beach pavilions and restaurants, which can collect garbage during their walk. The reward for returning with a stuffed bag is a cup of coffee or soup. The waste products are then used by the students "Applied Arts" of the University of Amsterdam as a raw material for new products such...

Jutten with jute

After a walk through the dunes it's finally there: the sea! Delight the wind through your hair, snuggle the salty sea air and walk on your bare feet through the soft sand. A nice beach walk can only be disturbed in one way ... waste. Fortunately, people are becoming more aware that waste is in the trash and that we need to be friendlier to our beautiful nature. Still, it remains a challenge to keep the beach and the sea clean. Noortje Schrauwen and Floor Hendriks have designed a fantastic concept to make the beach visitor a beach jutter. And not just a beach jumper, but a raw material jutter. A large part of the beach can be recycled, which also is the beginning of...
