Support the good cause right from the beginning Still small but with a big motivation.

We at blOOturtle believe that a healthy planet should be the main objective of every company working with kids’ products. And this includes supporting good causes right from the very beginning.

Let’s remember the words of the great late Nelson Mandela:
‘Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.’

We agree!

We are founded beginning 2018 and even though finding a spot for a small and specialized (eco-friendly) kids book publishing company is hard, we want to show where we are right from the beginning.

Supporting good causes which are related to our main goals and our books is one of our objectives. Here you’ll find a list of our activities so far. Please don’t hesitate to write to us if you have another good idea how to support the good cause with small steps…

National Girl Projects

Bundesverband der Frauengesundheitszentren

The Federal Association of Women Health Centres

The goal is to provide girls and women with good information about the body, sexuality and health problems, to encourage them to live independently so that they can freely decide their health and their body.

In a sheltered environment, girls and women can learn, share and learn to embrace and appreciate their body and experience many opportunities to handle their health responsibly and to be empowered in their daily lives.

The Federal Association currently networks 16 women’s health centers. He is a member of the National Women and Health Network, the European Women’s Health Network (EWHNet) and Associate Member of the Federal Association of Patient Centers (BAGP). Representatives of the Federal Association are involved in the expert discussion on women’s health in the Federal Ministry of Health and in the Women’s Health Working Group of the Federal Center for Health Education (BzgA).
