Soendgen donates one hundred ceramic coverpots
The children at Cologne’s Adelheid ‘Kita’ greeted our gleaming, colorful ceramic pots with great excitement. The motive of Soendgen Keramik GmbH, the Adendorf manufacturer, in making this donation was to stimulate the children’s interest in plants and nature and, at the same time, to make their daily surroundings more cheerful than ever.
For years Soendgen has been a substantial sponsor of the “Green for Kids” initiative and, a few weeks ago, took charge of landscaping the playground at the Haus Adelheid as part of the ‘Kita-Begrünung’ operation. This institution houses mothers with their children – mothers who are, in some cases, still under age and are able, with the support of the home, to complete their education.
As happened in the ‘Kita-Begrünung’ operation, when it came to the current re-potting tasks the children picked their favourite pots out from the colourful assortment with great enthusiasm, and put their plants into them. The plants in their new “apparel” are now on display on the windowsills of the day rooms and making a considerable contribution the Kita’s happy atmosphere. So the basis idea behind „Green for Kids“ – namely encouraging small people to involve themselves with plants and nature – has been brought to fruition with this charitable campaign in a way that has been fun for all concerned.
