Did you know...
“Rent” is one of the 8 R’s of our circular economy
The rental business has been a big part of our corporate philosophy since the very beginning of Bründl Sports’ existence back in 1956.
Hans Bründl realized that he could bring the joys of skiing to even more people without them having to actually buy ski equipment of their own.
Did you know that the transformation of a linear economy to a circular economy is one of the essential factors for meeting the UN’s climate and sustainable development goals?
In that regard, the idea of renting out skiing and biking equipment, and even clothing, plays a significant role. That said, Bründl Sports has committed itself to focusing on this topic within the context of a comprehensive sustainability strategy.
A circular economy explained simply
The 8 R`s on the path to greater sustainability
A linear economy basically equates to using and throwing away. But by embracing our motto "R = Rethink", here at Bründl Sports we aim to become a driving force for an economy that is “circular” instead.
Our strategy for a sustainable business philosophy in the context of the sports retail sector is based on the “8 R’s” for a sustainable economy:
- Rent (!)
Tip: Simply rent your ski garments
Maybe you want to give skiing a try for the very first time, or you only get out in the snow occasionally. In that case, why not go ahead and rent trendy ski clothing?
A perfect opportunity for you to reduce your holiday “footprint” and be gentler on your holiday budget.
Additional services & improvements in our rental services
- Regular paper for cash register receipts contains pollutants and has to be disposed of with the rest of the residual waste. However, we now use recyclable thermal paper rolls exclusively, 100 % free from any chemical additives.
- Paper invoices produce tons of unnecessary waste. In future, we will email our invoices for rental services directly to the customer. Not only is this more resource-friendly, it is also more practical for you.
- Our offer "Try & Buy" is also a fantastic example of a sustainable business approach: If you first have a chance to check out a product for yourself, you’ll be more certain of making a good decision and less likely to return the item. The results are clear: more efficient use of natural resources and a far happier customer!
