Sustainability is certainly important to you, otherwise you wouldn't have landed on this page of all places. We want to show you how we are already contributing to sustainability today, because it is as important to our entire team as it is to you. We're still at the beginning of our journey, but we're taking small steps to fulfill our mission and become more sustainable.
Our products are organic. But what does that mean anyway? "Organic" is not the same as "sustainable" - yet organic labels imply high standards for food production! The processing, storage and transport of organically certified products are subject to strict regulations.
Products with the organic seal are also guaranteed not to contain certain foreign ingredients. Even during cultivation, inspectors take a close look at everything once a year. For example, they check that no synthetic chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. This is just one of the certification requirements, which primarily protect the farmland and soil. Organic products are therefore not automatically sustainable, but an organic seal indicates that a company attaches importance to sustainable management.
We've worked hard to make our packaging sustainable. Not only are they extra durable and designed to get our glass bottles to you safely, they also eliminate plastic where possible!
Unfortunately, it is not (yet) possible to go completely plastic-free. In search of ideas on how we can offset our plastic consumption, we became aware of CleanHub.
CleanHub is an organization that collects plastic in coastal regions so that it does not end up in the sea in the first place. The recyclable portion of the collected waste is sold, recycled and the proceeds donated to social projects.
Did you know that you can buy our products locally in various stores? Find Kloster Kitchen near you! But of course there is also our online store. That's why we had to ask ourselves the question: How do our ginger shots get to you sustainably when you buy them online?
Unfortunately, the emissions caused by shipping our products cannot be completely avoided. However, to counteract the CO2 released, we use DHL Go Green. This means that all our DHL parcels and packages are shipped worldwide in a climate-neutral manner and the emissions generated are offset by investments in global climate protection projects.
The Good Food Collective is - as the name suggests - about good food. And not (only) in the sense of taste, but above all in the sustainable sense.
The Good Food Collective is an association of companies in the food industry that want to develop sustainably for the whole of society - ecologically, socially and economically.
The Good Food Collective networks the individual know-how of the individual members through projects that we visibly bring to the public: With campaigns that are synchronously played out by all and thus achieve a reach that an individual member would never achieve.
You have to shake up inert systems. Otherwise nothing will move. And that's what we're doing - loudly. Because we are hungry for change!
We also want to do a little bit of good in the last stage in the production of our ginger shots. We thought for a long time about how we could proceed in a sustainable way. After careful consideration, we then decided to work together with two Lebenshilfen from our region.
Now, some of you may be asking yourself: Lebenshilfe - what does that even mean? Lebenshilfe is a non-profit organization that works to ensure that people with disabilities can be a normal part of our society. Whether it's school assistance, work and education or living in old age - Lebenshilfe provides support wherever possible. Among other things, the association also offers jobs for people with disabilities, and that's where Kloster Kitchen comes in.
We want to support the mission of Lebenshilfe. That's why there is work from Lebenshilfe behind every package from Kloster Kitchen . When something needs to be packed, for example like our 1SHOTs in the 7-pack, either Lebenshilfe Bamberg or Lebenshilfe Südthüringen does it.
