Second order round

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Joint Purchasing


Bendix Balke

Second order round

The second order round is finished. The next orders are possible in May and June 2020, deliveries in August/September 2020. If you have any suggestions about the products, you can discuss them on this page.

Some orders are possible in the meantime, please contact @bendix.balke

Your advantages:
  • Credibility: All materials meet the ECG criteria throughout the entire supply chain, e.g. recycled paper "Blue Angel" and ecological colours. We select suppliers who combine a high ECG balance sheet total with favourable prices.
  • Little effort: We print your contact data in most articles.
  • Favourable price: If many take part, the quantity prices are up to 60% cheaper than individual orders - in 2018 we achieved this saving with the 33,000 "General Flyers". But because ECG values have their price, we differ from low-cost suppliers.

Translation: Does your idea strengthen the common good?

Beer Mat    

Inscription:  "For the common good" and conversation-stimulating theses (4 motifs in set of 100). Hexagonal to sort them in an original way. Can be used as a discussion impulse or give-away at the information stand, at events or in your favourite pub as a beer mat.

Translation of Beer Mats:

1.) Where does your money work?

Money doesn't work, people work.
Ethical investments and alternative banks invest in social, sustainable ideas and projects.
The alternative economic model Economy for the Common Good is committed to making money the means instead of the goal of economic activity.

2.) Cooperation is stronger than competition.

Companies are stronger if they can rely on each other.
This releases energy. No one should work too much or too little because the competition is breathing down his neck.
The alternative economic model Economy for the Common Good has thought about how economies in cooperation
can succeed.

3.) Organic is cheaper.
Of course organic is more expensive. On the price tag in the shop. Because we pay the true costs of conventional agriculture with poisoned soils, bee deaths and climate change.
The economic model of Economy for the Common Good wants a system of taxes and levies that imposes common good costs on those who cause them. Then organic is cheaper.

4.) If superiors listen to their team, everyone feels better.
All have blind spots. Also superiors! Employees want to contribute ideas to make their company more sustainable and successful.
The Economy for the Common Good is an alternative economic model that makes co-decision just as strong as solidarity and sustainability.

Award Criteria

Contracts shall be awarded on the basis of the following three criteria:

Award CriterionComment Price 

      In general: The cheaper the order, the more likely it is to be received.

ECG Assessment   
  • In general, the higher the ECG rating, the more likely it is that orders will be received.
  • Deductions for expired public interest balance sheets
  • If no company with a ECG balance sheet offers this product, we compare which supplier* corresponds most closely to the ECG values according to available information.
  • If possible, the comparison of suppliers* takes place within Germany. Since some products are manufactured exclusively in neighbouring countries (pencils in Denmark and organic buttons in Austria), we have nevertheless taken them in.
  • Separate production of an article at different locations is not reasonable, because the bundling effect does not take effect and the printing costs increase.
  • You get the goods from a central distribution to avoid packing and transporting goods unnecessarily.

  • No labels
