Sustainable Supplier of the Month
Sustainability in its many forms is a huge part of the BDP DNA and as such, we are always curious about the interesting sustainable actions being taken in the world today.
Our curiosity led us to the idea, that we would pay tribute to those of our suppliers who are doing something special in regards to sustainability.
This is why, every first week of the month, we will be announcing a new “Sustainable Supplier of the Month” in this blog post and on our social media.
We hope you will like (read: love ❤️) the concept and feel inspired by the many creative sustainable projects out there! 💡
#4 – November 2019
Say hello to Novembers Sustainable Supplier of the month: Cofoco!
In the fall of 2019, Cofoco officially introduced “Carbon Free Dining”. This means, that all the menus at Cofocos Restaurants have increased by 5 DKK per person. The money is donated directly to a tree-planting project in collaboration with Green Earth Appeal.
Among other things, Green Earth Appeal works to establish ecosystems and sustainable forests and agriculture in the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania.
With this new project, Cofoco invites their guests to take an active part in a greater purpose and to contribute to a better future for our fellow people, the environment and climate.
The initiative is just the first step in Cofoco’s vision towards becoming a sustainable restaurant concept and we at BDP look forward to seeing what other sustainable actions they will take in the future.
#3 – Oktober 2019
Annette Von Einem
Octobers nomination for Sustainable Supplier of the month goes to Annette Von Einem.
In October, Annette Von Einem is awarded Sustainable Supplier of the month because she is one of the first flower designers to work with sustainably grown flowers, paper wrapping instead of plastic cellophane and biodegradable oasis (that funny green foam used for decorations).
Annette von Einem is located in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. She and her team deliver exciting and creative decorations and bindings for larger events. Annette has no less than 18 years of experience behind her and it shows – now also in a sustainable fashion!
#2 – September 2019
Nordic Choice Hotels
Septembers Sustainable Supplier of the month is awarded to Nordic Choice Hotels for their initiative ”Sweet Dreams Stay”. The idea is simple but powerful: if a customer chooses not to get their room cleaned for one night, Nordic Choice Hotels will donate money to UNICEF’s work against child trafficking.
At BDP we find this concept unique in many ways, not least because child trafficking is a subject can be difficult to address.
Sweet Dreams is one of 6 We-Care concepts that Nordic Choice Hotels work with.
#1 – August 2019
Our very first Sustainable Supplier of the Month is Bybi. Bybi produces honey from beehives in different areas of Copenhagen. Besides being a green and sustainable company, Bybi enriches the local community and environment by the socially excluded in honey production, sale and bee reproduction.
At Bybi you can get an exceptional taste of honey ice cream, honey rum or even honey beer. BDP has supported Bybi’s fascinating and sustainable honey production concept since 2012 and has only grown more fond of it over the years. Apart from sponsoring 140.000 of the City Bees, we also plan tours and events with Bybi.
