Who we are

We try not to create waste, and if it does not work, we properly sort it out. We choose what we will consume and take into account the environmental impacts of our food. We do not consume palm oil and prefer local food, some even breed and grow ourselves. We do not panic if we do not own shoes, clothes, appliances or cars according to the latest trends. We try to use the old stuff as much as possible and we give a chance to second hand products. When buying new things, we are also interested in their impact on the environment, we choose quality that lasts for as long as possible. We are interested in more environmentally-friendly operation of our household and we also think about electrically powered cars. 

Our inspiration 

Repeated visits to the forests in Indonesia over the years have conducted in fear that soon these places will not be the same as before. It is not just about the forests, but also the oceans and other rare ecosystems of our planet. The ownership and economic way in which people approach the Earth are in many places unsustainable. Pope Francis, who gave the ecological theme in 2015 a whole encyclical called Laudato Si - Care for a common home, beautifully illustrated the approach of people to Planet Earth.

This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she "groans in travail" (Rom 8:22). We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.. (Encyklika Laudato Si, 2015)
