Behind the Scenes Event & Outlet Sale in Lenzburg
The outlet sale in Lenzburg on January 27 was a complete success. Shortly before the outlet opened, customers were already queuing up to get their hands on the best outlet products. Before the outlet opened, we held a behind-the-scenes event where our product team gave an insight into their work. There was a lot of interest in product development at NIKIN and exciting questions were asked. Many thanks to everyone who stopped by our HQ on Saturday!
Recap forest workshops Bern 2023
Unfortunately, this time the weather wasn't as good as it was for the last TreePlantingDay, for example. Nevertheless, 15 participants met on this rainy November day at the Chutzenturm, where the introduction took place with a wonderful view. The mountains even appeared briefly in the background! Due to a storm warning, we had to limit the choice of workshops to three, which fortunately could then be held without rain. The participants were divided between the workshops "Silviculture", "Yoga walk in the forest" and "Experiencing the forest", with the former clearly being the most popular. On this instructive day, we were able to learn more about the value of the forest and the possibilities of experiencing it close to nature. We would like to thank all participants for their enthusiastic participation and look forward to welcoming you to the Christmas markets in similar temperatures!
TreePlantingDay Grüningen (ZH)
#treebytree! On October 7, 2023, another TreePlantingDay took place in Grüningen (ZH). The 30 committed participants planted 550 seedlings of cherry trees and Douglas firs, as well as sycamore and Norway maple in record time. The previously bare area of the Zurich State Forest had to be reforested due to storm damage and bark beetle infestation. In beautiful autumn weather, young and old spent a fulfilling day in the forest planting trees on behalf of our first 250 crowdinvestors. Thanks to the motivated efforts of all participants, we were able to make an important contribution to environmental protection!
That was a Gurtenfestival for the history books! On Wednesday, our NIKIN booth had to brave the hailstorm and also offered shelter to many visitors. After the thunderstorms, our caps and sunglasses were a big hit! We especially enjoyed the conversations with our customers and are already looking forward to next year.
OPEN AIR ST. GALLEN
Also this year NIKIN was at the Open Air St. Gallen with a small stand. With us: our evergreens latest collections - for the extra portion of summer feeling! Our team was able to meet many great people and enjoy the event to the fullest. #goodvibesonly
On June 1, 2023, we organized an inspiring Mountain Clean Up Day together with Saas Fee / Saas Valley Tourism. Numerous participants, including school classes and locals, cleared the Saas Valley of litter and sent a strong signal against littering. Thank you to everyone who got involved to make our environment cleaner and more sustainable!
CIRCULAR COLLECTION X OCEAN SAFE
We proudly presented the first 100% circular shirt from the NIKIN Circular Collection in cooperation with OceanSafe. Together we discussed the meaning of Circular Economy and explained to the visitors how the shirt was produced. Many thanks to all participants for this unforgettable event, where we showed that sustainability and environmental protection can go hand in hand.
POP-UP @NIKIN SHOWROOM WITH TEXAID
The Pop-Up @NIKIN showroom on March 18 was a great success! We welcomed many of you at our headquarters in Lenzburg and were very happy about the positive feedback. Together with TEXAID we were able to trade in your old clothes and offer you a discount. The campaign was very well received which shows that sustainability is an important topic that concerns us all. Thank you for your support and see you next time!
NIKIN TREEPLANTINGDAY ETAGNIÈRES (VD)
It's a wrap! On our TreePlantingDay in Etagnières, a total of 30 volunteer tree planters took part. Together we planted 250 trees and made an important contribution to environmental protection. We were very lucky with the weather and as a thank you we gave all TreePlanters a NIKIN Treeanie. Finally, we were able to take a quiz on exciting forest facts with Almighty Tree and go home satisfied.
