As a central issue in our society today, the environmental protection plays a major role. Especially for us in rural areas, nature is omnipresent. Therefore, we strive to preserve our environment.
Disposable packaging’s in the food sector have almost completely been replaced by better alternatives. All jams and marmalades are made from fruit from our own garden or gardens nearby. Our salads and vegetables come mostly from our own garden, so no polluting transportation as involved. And we know how "organic" our food is.
Years ago we switched our lighting almost entirely to energy saving bulbs. Motion sensors switch lights on only if it is required.
Where it is possible without reducing comfort, we can save water and thus one of the most important resources of our time. Warm water is heated with the help of the sun through a solar thermal system. An air source heat pump extracts heat from ambient air so your shower water is the right temperature. Only the additional heating is based on oil.
In terms of power we have done our homework as well. A photovoltaic system with over 50 kWp power generates almost twice the amount of electricity we consume each year. We believe this represents a positive CO2 balance.
In the midst of nature - we live with nature. The welfare of our environment is close to our hearts.
