2019 was a year full of highlights for NIKIN. We have summarized the most beautiful and important moments for you.
The two NIKIN founders Robin and Nicholas have reviewed the NIKIN year for you. In the video they tell you what we experienced this year together. We have listed some points from the video for you.
GOTS certification for NIKIN
In January 2019, NIKIN reached a significant milestone in terms of sustainability. After thorough inspections we received the GOTS label. GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) guarantees ecologically produced fabrics. All information about the certification and the label can be found here.
Tree planting day in Lenzburg in Lenzburg
In March, NIKIN planted trees on domestic soil for the first time. In Lenzburg, around fifty NIKIN fans and the entire NIKIN family planted over 500 trees. In beautiful weather and in the best of moods, we were thus able to give something back to nature - and all this on our doorstep.
Visit to One Tree Planted One Tree Planted
Our partner organisation One Tree Planted (OTP) takes over the planting of the trees for us. They always plant the trees where they are most urgently needed. In order to give us an idea of their work, the two NIKIN founders Nicholas Hänny and Robin Gnehm visited OTP in Colorado and planted trees with them.
Several awards for NIKIN
NIKIN has grown rapidly in 2019. This has not escaped the attention of various major award organizations. We were particularly pleased to receive the following three awards:
- Final participation in the Swiss Economic Award
- Swiss Brand of the Year in the „price-performance" category
- Title „Aargauer of the Year" for our Chief Environmental Officer (CEO) Nicholas Hänny
First pop-up store from NIKIN
Like small children we could hardly wait for his opening: In November, our pop-up store opened in Zurich. From TreeSocks to clothing and TreeBottles, customers can buy products from our portfolio there. A little NIKIN paradise in the heart of Zurich - this was definitely one of our favourite moments in 2019.
2020 will be even more exciting
Anyone who thinks we're going to spend eternity reminiscing is very much mistaken. On the contrary: we are full of energy and are looking forward to an even more exciting 2020. We are putting all our energy into the new year. Many new products are waiting for you and we have exciting projects planned.
