At the end of 2020, hurricanes Eta and Iota caused terrible damage in Honduras, an important coffee farming country. Tchibo contacted the local coffee farmers and coffee partners and helped immediately: employees donated to the German Red Cross (DRK) and Tchibo doubled the amount. Additional financial support from Tchibo to the coffee farming region not only alleviates the worst circumstances, but also reestablishes the conditions for coffee cultivation.

No plastic here

How can you pack T-shirts, pyjamas or trousers for sale without plastic – while still ensuring that they are protected during transport? After dozens of tests and years of research and experimentation, our in-house packaging experts have finally come up with the answer: A pre-assembled cardboard sleeve is folded around the textiles from the bottom, and a further piece of cardboard shaped like a clothes hanger is inserted to stabilise the garment.
The only part of the packaging still made of plastic (recycled, of course!) is the hanging loop that keeps it all together – and even this will be replaced by a recycled paper version by the end of the year. The new and (almost) plastic-free packaging is a world-first and we have already applied for a patent.
