Søstrene Grene and Plan International Partner-Up

Søstrene Grene

Søstrene Grene is een Deense retailketen, opgezet door de Grene familie in 1973. Søstrene Grene (de Gezusters Grene in Deens) heeft maar liefst 13 winkels in Nederland en twee in België. De producten die te koop zijn worden ontworpen met creativiteit, geluk en plezier (‘hygge’ in Deens) en het concept van “Slow Living” in gedachte. De winkel heeft een ruim assortiment aan producten voor huis, keuken, knutselen, feest, kantoor, en kinderen. Prijzen zijn laag; een afdruiprekje heb je al voor €4,89. Wij, van Mimi Berlin, hebben de winkel nog niet bezocht maar we zijn erg benieuwd! (scroll down for English text)

Koop water doneer aan Plan International

Plan International en Søstrene Grene starten een drie jaar durende samenwerking met als doel gelijke kansen voor alle kinderen, met een nadruk op meisjes. Bij de keten gelooft men dat er meer gelijkheid moet zijn op deze wereld. Wanneer iedereen elkaar als zussen behandelt, zal de wereld een mooiere plek worden. Met deze gedachte is de samenwerking van start gegaan, waarbij een deel van de opbrengst van kartonnen waterkartonnen aan Plan International gedoneerd wordt.
Per verkochte karton, van €0,66 wordt €0,10 gedoneerd aan Plan International. Daarnaast zal Søstrene Grene, ongeacht hoeveel waterkartonnen verkocht worden, het eerste jaar minstens €53.500 doneren. Als er meer waterkartonnen verkocht worden, zal dit bedrag nog hoger worden. Plan International zal het gedoneerde geld gebruiken waar zij het nodig vinden.”

Buy Water, Donate to Plan International

Plan International and Søstrene Grene start a three-year partnership with the aim of equal opportunities for all children, with an emphasis on girls. The chain believes that there should be more equality in this world. When everyone treats each other like sisters, the world will become a more beautiful place. With this in mind, the collaboration started, with part of the proceeds from cardboard waterboxes being donated to Plan International.
To be exact € 0.10 is donated to Plan International for every € 0.66 cardboard waterbox. In addition, regardless of how many waterboxes are sold, Søstrene Grene will donate at least € 53,500 in the first year. If more water boxes are sold, this amount will be even higher. Plan International will use the donated money where they find it necessary.

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear Cashmere

SoGoodToWear (SGTW) is a new Dutch cashmere brand. Not your average brand, no! SGTW is a sustainable fashion label which owns a goat herd in the higher regions of Nepal The goats provide for the high quality cashmere used by SGTW. The knitted collections are designed in the Netherlands by Mark van Vorstenbos, and are made by cashmere knitters in a fair-trade knitting factory in Nepal. Maybe needless to mention (but we will anyway) SoGoodToWear is a fair-trade brand which uses innovative and ethical ways to breed and herd their goats without causing any environmental damage.

The imported goats get their own scarf, with a portrait illustrated by Machteld Schouten. Above the first one; it’s ‘Cappucino’ the goat. The second goat, ‘Mr Gaga’, also has been portrayed but that’s still a secret…… We, at Mimi Berlin, took care of the styling for the webshop, photography was done by JW Kaldenbach. Ofcourse it’s ‘styling light‘ but we just want to show all the work we do at MB-Modebüro.
