The last time has shown us all what really matters in life: it’s more important than ever to stick together, to treat each other with respect, to act with courage, vigour and commitment. Along these lines, we use #bebrave to make a statement for joy of lifeand diversity. Among others, our team has pooled their collective strengths and embraced their love of colour to create unique greeting cards. Be brave!
We support Parcours!
Young creative people present their ideas and solutions – we are very pleased to have been a partner of the Parcours closing exhibition at the Münster School of Design since 2017. From socially critical magazines to sustainable products and flexible exhibition concepts, the students show a wide range of their creative work. As a partner and among others, we support each semester team with a special raffle to win a trial in our agency. And sometimes this collaboration is continued beyond that day.
As in the previous semester, in 2021 the final exhibition took place virtually (February 12-14). Gain impressions here:
Lately,we harvested our third annual batch of our very own honey, known as Schloss Gold (Castle Gold). A healthy, natural treat that our team, business partners and friends of our brand enjoy throughout the colder months of the year and beyond. Back in summer 2018, we gave two colonies a new home in our extensive garden at Harkotten Castle, since we wanted to do our small bit to counteract the global decline in the bee population. To ensure our bees are looked after professionally all year round, we work with the company Bee Future.
The Earthwatch Institute recently declared bees to be the most invaluable species on the planet: they pollinate crop plants, secure the human food supply and contribute to biodiversity. But in recent years, there has been a drastic decline in the global bee population.
Bees are irreplaceable
… and really hard-working. A few facts and figures:
75% of global agriculture is dependent on bees to pollinate fruit, vegetables or nuts.
Bees have existed for over 100 million years.
Each colony has three types of bees, which differ in size: one queen, hundreds of drones and around 60,000 workers.
Honey bees search for food in a 3 to 4 km radius around their hive; in human terms, that’s equivalent to travelling around 2,500 km to find food.
A bee leaves the hive around ten times per day, and visits 250 to 300 flowers.
To produce 500g of honey, bees have to fly to between two and five million flowers, covering a distance of some 150,000km; for a single bee, that’d be equivalent to flying round the globe three times.
Each year, a bee colony flies a cumulative total of up to 36 million km, which is 900 times the circumference of the earth.
Bees flap their wings an average of 11,400 times per minute (190 times a second) and fly at speeds ranging from 20 to 30 km/h.
