Cranes are blooming!

Our #Krahnenblossom campaign is in full swing!

We sent hundreds of flowers and plants disguised as A6 paper in recyclable Krahnen envelopes to give back to the environment and give our customers an easy, fun and exciting journey towards sustainability. The great thing is that this can be done at work, in the front yard or wherever you want.

Simply place the seed paper on a suitable spot of soil and cover it with about 1 cm. Now just water well, keep moist and wait for the plants to grow.

Please let us be part of your own personal “experiment” with the seed paper and share it on social media using the hashtag “crane blossoms”.
In addition, we look forward to any feedback or questions you may have about the campaign in the comment sections of our social media channels or by direct message.

week 1

Here is a small update on the seed papers planted in our company!


After about a week, the first flowers sprout from the soil in our front yard. We are keen to monitor further developments and will of course keep you up to date.

week 2-3

After about 3 weeks, the flowers have already grown several centimeters and give you an idea of what will become of them.

Week 4-5

After about 4 weeks the first real "wow" moment. The plants are really blossoming and have now grown well over ten centimetres. We are looking forward to the next few weeks and are following our former papers closely!

week 6-7

Now after about 6 weeks you can already see a big growth spurt in our specimen! We hope for the next flowers in the next few weeks.

week 8-9

After about 8 weeks you can already see a larger plant, which adorns itself with several flowers. We are looking forward to more blossoms and are watching over our green friends.
