Sustainable Development Goals: Unbound Initiative

Nothing better than coming back from a week long, well deserved holidays, and get to know that in two hours you will be hosting a bunch of university students from Australia coming from all types of backgrounds.

Your mission? Effectively present the organisation and its inner workings, the environmental policies we’re working on, how we try and lesson our carbon footprint, i.e. what we do to maintain a sustainable business operation. But not only that, no. In addition, we’re also working on the social side of things, such as community development. Exposing our philosophy, ideas for progress, and challenges was exactly what they needed to further their own missions.

Indeed, what you need to know about the traveling youngsters, is that they all took off together with projects in mind: how could they possibly help young people with disabilities integrate society? How could they provide hope, motivate them to ovecome the barriers they currently faced and grow?

Now doing this anywhere else than their home country made sure to provide them not only an opportunity to see the rest of the world, but to open their eyes to the realities of it too.

After quite a bountiful lunch, great ideas were exchanged, facts checked and myths busted, while of course keeping a growth mindset – there’s no real setback, only lessons to learn from and grow.

All in all, both sides spent an amazing and may I say, enlightening few hours together, and we at Donkey Bakery wish all the best to these kind souls, willing to go above and beyond to leave the world a better place.

PS: it’s only now, looking at pictures that we’ve realised what this initiative is all about… check out the following link to know more about the United Nations Sustainable Development Study Tour these amazing students were on!

Donkey Goes Organic

What are organic vegetables?

Organic Label

Simply stated, organic vegetables and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Animals that produce meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones. Click here to know more. Each country has its standards, this link is the US Standards.


Why choose organic?

1. It is environmentally friendly. Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.

2. Taste Better : Taste is definitely an individual matter, but hundreds of gourmet chefs across the nation are choosing organic food to prepare because they believe it has superior taste and quality.
An increasing number of consumers are also of the opinion that organic food tastes better. Because organic food is grown in well-balanced soil, it makes sense that these healthy plants have a great taste. Try organic food for yourself and see what you think!

3. Stronger, More Energetic Body : No pesticides, chemicals, or processed additives bogging down your system means a smaller risk of disease, illness, and disorders in yourself. Nothing leaves you feeling tired and gross like unhealthy junk food.

Some recently published studies in peer-reviewed journals have shown organic foods to have higher nutritional value. And a lot more !

Donkeys go full-flown organic!

Donkey wants to be part of this organic movement. We believe in organic food and we think that Hanoi is a great place to start, as farmers put lots of chemical products on produce in general. We want to provide vegetables with good quality for customers. Our vegetables come from our own farm located in Hoa Binh, where we cultivate a wide variety of vegetables for you to choose from. Quality guaranteed!
