This year we have been saving bees, researching our carbon footprint and protecting the winters

What is your New Year's resolution? We promise to continue our work as a speaker for a sustainable lifestyle and consumption (also we wish to spend even more time outdoors!).  Read more about our sustainable actions below.
 

Bee-Friendly Summer with Elisa and Sugar Daddies

weekendbee bee protection

Bees are especially important for us at Weekendbee hence the -bee name!

The wellbeing of bees and the education of their importance is part of Weekendbee´s mission, so we joined forces with bee-farmer Elisa Nordman who reported her summer bee-keeping news via Bee-TV Instagram Channel and Sugar Daddies Co to spread this sweet message around the world.

We will continue this cooperation with these great bee-lovers, so stay tuned next year!

WEEKENDBEE WILL BE CLIMATE NEUTRAL ONLINE STORE WITH HELP FROM KARBONAUTTI

As a sustainable online store, our aim at Weekendbee is to operate an environmentally friendly way as possible. But all organizations have operations that cause CO2 emissions that can't be avoided.


Our goal is to be climate neutral organization which means that all the emissions that can't be avoided, will be compensated.

We joined efforts in this mission with Karbonautti who will be calculating our CO2 emissions during the year and at the end of the year, the emissions will be compensated by directing the compensation money to Gold Standard Certified projects. We will announce the 2019 report and compensation at the beginning of the year 2020. 

Where is the snow? Let's protect our winters together

We at Weekendbee love snowy winters and we want to be able to enjoy them in the future as well. That is why we support Protect Our Winters Finland on their mission to fight against climate change. Together we can raise the discussion and take actions that have an effect on the future.

We got an interview with POW-ambassador Jani Johansén who tells us, why he loves the winters and why he wants to protect them.

3 Sustainable Ski Brands That Will Keep You Warm This Winter

Nothing new anymore, that fashion is one of the most polluting industries on this planet. They say that about 84% of textiles end up in the landfill, within the first year of purchasing it!

As skiers and snowboarders, we are connected to the environment, but our gear and habits can sometimes live in conflict with environmental ideals. While living and recreating will always have a give and take with environmentalism, one way we can reduce our impact is by purchasing gear from companies that produce sustainably at the forefront.

Why mulesing-free merino wool is more sustainable?
Why mulesing-free merino wool is more sustainable?

Wool outperforms any other fabrics when it comes to moisture-wicking, warmth and odor-fighting capabilities. Merino wool is known for its quality, softness and ability to regulate body temperature even during high-intensity activity. Wool fibers have scales that are removed to make the fiber soft and comfortable using a unique process that is chlorine-free. Weekendbee offers only 100 % mulesing-free merino wool products

Merino is naturally anti-bacterial and it doesn’t stink like synthetic fibers, so you don’t have to wash the shirt so often – drying and airing it out is usually enough. 

So why should we pay attention that our favorite merino wool sportswear is mulesing-free?
