A Corrugated Board Garden Home
It's not just sparrows and titmice that are chirping for joy. These nesting boxes in the garden or on the balcony offer any number of cavity nesters a bit of protected space to raise their young. The birdhouses represent an important tool in preserving domestic fauna.
Lots of people love birds, but not everyone knows how to use saw and hammer to make a nesting spot for our winged friends. RhönSprudel thus asked the STI Group to come up with a practical solution for a season: a corrugated board nesting box. The nesting box is hung in a protected location and offers one bird family an ideal spot to brood, hatch and learn to fly. An ornithologist was consulted to ensure that the design was appropriate for the task, offering cavity nesters protection and a sense of home.
The charming single (bird-)family homes are designed to be set up by the customer and were handed out as a promotional item with the purchase of two cases of the company’s apple juice/sparkling water mix. “The corrugated board nesting boxes have gone over very well,” says Jürgen Bühler, director of marketing for RhönSprudel. “Families with children in particular have shown enthusiasm for the campaign, and are able to make a quick and easy contribution to the preservation of domestic bio-diversity.”
Once the young birds have flown the roost, then this "short-term home" can be deposited into the organic bin or a home compost heap. There's no need to clean the nesting box, one factor that has kept some bird lovers away from hanging nesting boxes in the past.
Thanks to a special anti-moisture treatment, the primary fibre birdhouse can tackle any weather. The RhönSprudel logo printed on the front reminds about the home's sponsor as well.
