Lowlander Botanical Beers 0.3% Cool Earth Lager - Nature Positive

Here’s our promise

As a botanical brewer with roots in The Netherlands, it is our founding belief that a little bit of Dutch ingenuity combined with the power of nature creates limitless possibilities. At the same time, we are very much aware of the fact that we should never take nature’s beauty and benefits for granted.

We are looking for the perfect balance. Just like finding the right combination of botanicals to brew our uniquely refreshing drinks, so it is with the natural world. When more is taken out than is given back, the balance needs to be restored.

In order to keep enjoying nature, we need to protect it for generations to come. That’s why we are taking full responsibility for our actions as we are moving our impact from negative to positive. Championing the global goal for nature, working towards a nature positive impact by 2030.

THE FOUNDING STORY

HOW WE TAKE LESS

Instead of endlessly taking from our planet, we choose to take care of it more often. By reducing, re-using and recycling wherever we can, we optimise what we have taken before – giving new life and meaning to valuable resources that still have incredible flavour. From repurposing leftover orange peels from bars and restaurants to brewing with Spruce needles coming from discarded Christmas trees.

AND GIVE BACK

As the globe gets warmer, the need for funding of ingenious solutions becomes more urgent too. To compensate all that’s being taken, we give back by becoming proud members of “1% For the Planet”. We donate 1% of our sales to a range of nature causes close to our heart. That way we get to support initiatives that fight climate change, conserve biodiversity and preserve wildlife.

OUR FOCUS AREAS

It’s quite an ambition, to become Nature Positive by 2030. We know we still got a long way to go. However, we’ve got high hopes for the future as there are plenty of beautiful opportunities we are able to take to bring us closer to our goal. Besides, travels of explorations and discovery into the unknown have never stopped us before. May this become our most inspiring journey yet. To increase our positive impact within our business, we are focussing on four key themes for constant improvement: waste prevention, climate change, biodiversity & wildlife.

WASTE

We’re committed to reducing – and eliminating – waste from our business to help conserving space in our landfills and conserving our resources. From finding more sustainable alternatives for single use plastic in our supply chain and cutting down on point of sales materials, to upcycling, recycling and reusing flavourful ingredients that otherwise would be thrown away.

Icon - Nature Positive - Fights Climate Change

Climate change

With global warming in full force, we feel responsible to do whatever we can to help cooling down the planet to fight climate change. And so we’re always looking for ways to either reduce or compensate our carbon footprint. From letting our team drive around on electric Lowlander bikes to brewing naturally delicious beers that do good too.

Icon - Nature Positive - Protects Biodiversity

BIODIVERSITY

Without bees, butterflies and other pollinators we wouldn’t have a healthy nature. Without a healthy nature, we wouldn’t have botanically brewed Lowlander beers. We owe our beers to the bee and butterfly, so we are committed to raise awareness and support biodiversity by using organic ingredients and collaborating with The Pollinators.

Icon - Nature Positive - Protects Wildlife

WILDLIFE

As travels led us to the most beautiful parts of the world, we also came across the most inspiring local initiatives that help preserving wildlife; proving how humans and every incredible species on this planet can – and should – live in perfect harmony to enjoy nature for generations to come. We contribute by donating part of our sales to initiatives such as WWF.
