Advent, Advent, the environment is on fire. Admittedly, there are nicer, but hardly more important associations. That is why we want to fall in love with the theme of the Advent calendar this year: Not only we, but also our environment has just deserved an extra portion of love, care and attention.
The last few years have not been easy, rather the world has rushed from one catastrophe to the next. So in winter it is time to pause for a moment. Slow down the pace. To look back, but also to look forward. Around Christmas people make it their business to make each other happy. How about if we thought about the environment at the same time this year?
Advent calendars are not only there for children for a long time, they are more important for us adults – to rekindle our childish anticipation, which is quickly forgotten in everyday life. In autumn, people are busy doing handicrafts or shopping to give friends or family members 24 doors. The unpleasant truth: In addition to joy, Advent calendars also like to spread a lot of rubbish with all the decoration love. And we – and our world – just don’t really need that.
