We believe businesses should support society. The following is a list of socially beneficial projects that we believe in and we support financially.
If, as our customer, you feel you know of any social project that is worth supporting and that fits well into the Eichenhain.com values, let us know - we are happy to consider it (but please be mindful that the choice is up to us).
We try to donate once a month, sometimes, when this will not work we will donate later multiple times to cover for the lost times.
