Social sustainability, environmental protection, taking responsibility - everyone is talking about sustainability, but how does it work, how can I make my purchase decision if it should be a new part for the horse and what does all this have to do with sheep?! That is the topic of the tölt interrogation of tact and mind with Sportsfreund founder and boss Veronika Conen. (Only in German)
Do you also regularly find yourself wanting to hear nothing more about climate change, species extinction, environmental destruction, etc. etc.? And not because you don't care about the issues and are therefore just annoying, but because they seem so overwhelming against the background noise of the ongoing crisis and the limited options for action seem so hopeless? At the latest, when I also get feelings of guilt, I just want to suppress and close myself off.
In any case, I always have to switch to slack so that I don't lose heart. Fortunately, however, sustainable action does not only mean renunciation and desolation, but also some quite unexpected gains in an inclusive new quality of life.
We have been working with Svenja Linder and Melanie Schiess from Instagram-Profil TAKT UND VERSTAND . Now the time has come for my first podcast interview.In the so-called tölt interrogation, the two pestered me with questions about “sustainability” in general and asked me how we at Sportsfreund feel about the term we like to use and whether we deal with it honestly. A very lively conversation developed, which gave us all good insights. Hope you too! Have lots of fun with it.
What can I start with?
Going without shopping is one of the first things prescribed on the way to more sustainability. "Holy Saint Florian, protect my house, light others," says the Bavarian. Here we stand at the crossroads between a good and a bad conscience. We are also a company that lives from the sale of its products. After all, we try our best to design and manufacture our products to cause as little harm as possible. If you buy from us and you value the products and treat them in such a way that they have a long life, then we have done a few things well together.

A small note about our prices: you pay more with us, but unlike the current energy prices, you also get more from us. The price may be unsexy, but our products are real seducers and ultimately deliver reliably!

Probably the most sustainable blanket
I think it's important that we're always proud of what we've achieved. No matter how big or small the achievement for the world. At least that's how it is with us Wool Rug BAVARIA made from original Bavarian mountain loden. It ticks so many sustainability boxes while not having the cheerless taste of a dry spelled patty. It is of almost glamorous beauty and works optimally on top of that. If that isn't a plus.
