Be fantastic without plastic

Santa is watching you...

single use plastic/plastic

Today a "no go" for advent calendar inlays, environmentally harmful and bad image as well as mostly cheap appearance of the advent calendar due to plastic crackling.

Plastic inlays are often non-biodegradable and can remain in the environment for decades, causing pollution of ecosystems and endangering wildlife.

The use of plastic inlays in advent calendars contradicts the goal of a sustainable economy and environmentally conscious action.

The use of plastic inlays in advent calendars can create a negative image of the company among customers, as plastic packaging is increasingly perceived as a symbol of pollution and sustainability issues.

Waste paper/recycled paper

Not approved for food.
Hygiene: In some cases, waste paper may contain dust, dirt, or other contaminants that may cause hygiene concerns when used in the advent calendar.

This is particularly relevant if the advent calendar contains food or cosmetic products.

Odor: Recycled or waste paper can have unpleasant odors. These odors can be transferred to the products contained in the advent calendar (migration) and thus have a negative impact on the customer experience.

Fresh fibre/premium

Suitable for food, high-quality optics, raw material can be recycled in waste paper, odorless, white

Fresh fiber material is a renewable raw material that is obtained from various types of trees such as spruce, pine or fir. It is wood that has not yet been recycled or reused and comes straight from the forest.

Another important aspect of virgin fiber material is that, as a renewable resource, it is considered an environmentally friendly alternative to non-renewable resources such as petroleum or minerals. The cultivation of trees used for the production of fresh fiber material helps reduce greenhouse gases and promotes biodiversity by preserving habitats for animals and plants.

What are advent calendars?

Advent calendars are a traditional and charming way of celebrating the holiday season and counting down the days until Christmas. Typically, an advent calendar begins on December 1st and ends on December 24th. Behind each of the 24 doors or compartments there is a little surprise that is revealed every day in December until Christmas Eve.

The origins of the Advent calendar date back to the 19th century when Christian families in Germany used simple methods to count the days of Advent. Today, advent calendars have a firm place in many countries and cultures and come in a wide variety of designs and styles.

Advent calendars are a charming tradition for celebrating the holiday season and counting down to Christmas. They are available in a variety of variants, such as chocolate advent calendars, advent calendars for children, advent calendars for men and women or beauty advent calendars. You can even make a DIY advent calendar yourself or design a personalized advent calendar to make the gift even more individual.

Tea advent calendars and Christmas advent calendars with sweepstakes are other creative options to shorten the wait until the holiday season. Whether labeled as a Christmas calendar, Xmas calendar, countdown calendar, or holiday calendar, they all serve as a 24-day calendar that brings joy and a festive spirit to the Advent season.

A surprise calendar can be made of different materials such as paper, cardboard, fabric or wood and is often lovingly designed. Gift calendars, also known as candy calendars, are perfect for those with a sweet tooth and feature a variety of treats. A gift box with 24 compartments is an excellent alternative to add small tokens of appreciation or messages, making the calendar even more personal.

With an advent calendar, whether as a waiting time shortener or as a gift idea, you can give your loved ones a special treat in the run-up to Christmas. Discover the variety of advent calendars and find the perfect calendar for you and your family.
