What actually happens to a truck tarpaulin which one has no further use for? At HALFAR®, we utilize it to create new bags. The German ZDF television crew that also produces the TV show WISO has filmed the way which an upcycled truck tarpaulin is undergoing. In the end, our sewing workers used the tarpaulin cuttings to make individual WISO backpacks of it. Just click at the picture below to see the full video.
We are happy to announce that we have won the Promotional Gift Award in 2020 again!
With our new decoration technique HALFAR FAST LANE® and the matching series FRAME we convinced the jury.
In only two days the jury checked 207 samples that have been send in and awarded 45 products in seven categories.
In cooperation with the socially engaged Cornelia Delius from Bielefeld, HALFAR® donated bags and backpacks to students in Karatu, Tanzania. Two monastery sisters of the Rhotia Health Centre received the bags for the children. Now they can use them for their daily school materials.
The Rhotia Health Centre provides medical support for future mothers or in emergency cases to the inhabitants. Furthermore, the centre is currently building a room for an x-ray apparatus to improve medical support. Since all medical devices are funded by donations, every little donation is greatly appreciated. If you want to donate, too, please follow the link:
Besides the schools mentioned above Cornelia Delius also visited the pre-school of Karatu. We are happy to see that the kids like our bags.
In September we opened our new logistics centre in Bielefeld Altenhagen. From the very outset, we decided to run the warehouse in a sustainable way. Therefore, we installed a photovoltaic system on the roof and a heating which is run on green gas. As the PV system cannot produce electricity all the time, we cover the energy needed by buying green electricity. Yesterday we received the corresponding certificates.
