KAARTJIES IN AFRIKAANS

Ons nuwe Sustainable Seasons geskenkkaartjies is nou ook in Afrikaans beskikbaar. Die projek het ten doel om 'n inkomste vir ons werknemers te verseker tydens die COVID-19-krisis, maar beoog ook om 'n groter verskil te maak. Ons het vir Anja Stoeckigt van Paper-tales betrek om die kunswerk te behartig, om sodoende 'n plaaslike kunstenaar in hierdie moeilike tyd te ondersteun.      Verder sal 'n deel van die obrengste van die verkoop van die kaartjies aan die Wêreldnatuurlewefonds (WWF South Africa) se volhoubare inisiatief vir landbou geskenk word. #trotsafrikaans #geskenkkaartjies #sustainableseasons #ondersteunplaaslik #growpingpaper

INTRODUCING SUSTAINABLE SEASONS

Charmaine Nolte

INTRODUCING SUSTAINABLE SEASONS

We’ve spent our time in self-isolation working on something magical that we believe will spread some much-needed joy, while also helping us to sustain our workforce during this time of crisis. Our Sustainable Seasons range of limited edition gift cards is meant to create a cycle of positivity. We want you to send these cards to your friends, neighbours and family members, to maintain your connection with them now that self-isolation has become a part of our everyday vocabulary. They, in turn, can plant the cards and share the flowers, herbs, or veggies they've grown with someone close to them. And so...
