In the green salon

Since March of this year the Westend of Wiesbaden has something very special to offer:
Karen Muth opened a real “nature-connected hairdressing salon” there!

Ania Grzeszek

It was important to me, if there should be goodie bags for the retreat participants, these were produced sustainably and naturally. All this I found on Ania’s label KALIKO. And in addition a wonderful person, which I really would like to meet in real life.

Franzi Schädel

Franzi Schädel from Schleswig-Holstein is a self-proclaimed eco-fluencer, an example for people who want to live more sustainably, but also a photographer in the name of love. I am fascinated by her diversity and gentleness. And the way she puts things in a nutshell.

BioLandgut Tiefleiten Saunabereich

Bye bye toxins!

For the past 20 years, the BioLandgut Tiefleiten in the Bavarian Forest has been practicing “organic” and sustainability.

Whether through beautiful forest sections or over fields, it is wonderfully beautiful there.

In June this year, at the retreat of the Laine magazine, I had the honor to meet Valentina Consalvi. She has grown very dear to me directly and since then I do not want to miss her anymore. She runs her company “Snailyarn” in Ariccia near Rome and has made a name for herself as a hand dyer in the knitting scene in recent years.

The female cycle and JUNO & ME
