Eden is paradise – and we work with it. In a moment you will learn how the whole thing started. But don’t worry: this story does not go back to Adam and Eve.
SANVT produces climate-neutral
In order to achieve CO2 neutrality, we analyzed and minimized the carbon footprint of all our essentials. Then, for the next step, we offset all our production-related CO2 emissions in collaboration with Climatepartner – by actively supporting climate protection projects in Germany.
SANVT plants trees…
But we wanted to go one step further – and together with ‘Eden Projects’ we started to plant trees around the globe. The idea is simple: we have been planting a tree for every essential we have sold since February. Why? Because trees are the most effective CO2-binders. This is done with the help of local villagers in Nepal, Indonesia, Madagascar, Haiti, Mozambique and Kenya. So far, so good. If you want to know more about the beginning of the cooperation, you can read about it here in our journal.
…now even more trees
Less VAT in Germany means more trees for the planet
Then came the coronavirus. First of all: this is not an attempt to look for positives in the pandemic. And yet the only reason we’re going for even greater environmental protection is because of it. In order to boost the economy, VAT in Germany was reduced from 19 to 16 percent. But instead of passing this (interim) reduction on to our customers, we’ve decided to pass it on indirectly – and in a more sustainable way. We wanted to achieve a more sustainable effect, so we will be planting three additional trees for each SANVT order. We’ve already started with this in July and will continue to do so until the IVA reduction lasts (currently planned until the end of the year).
More about sustainability at SANVT
We develop extra durable fabrics and garments that made exclusively from biodegradable fibres (e.g. 100% cotton). The dyeing of our products is done without harmful additives and all water is recycled.
We work exclusively with certified production partners who share our sustainable ethors and minimize the negative effects on nature and the environment. We shorten our transport routes, because all our suppliers are located close to each other in the same region. Only machines with A or B energy efficiency are used in our factories.
