The idea of an eco-calendar first came to us more than fifteen years ago, in 2005. Our plan was to provide information on everyday environmental protection beyond the mere function of a calendar.

The eco-calendar belongs to a new generation of calendars that are half-calendar-half-book publications. Every two to four calendar weeks, two to four pages are devoted to environmental information: ideas, facts, recipes, addresses.


In the foreword to the calendar, we write:

"The environment has come to the fore - at least verbally - in recent years. The eco, organic, natural and green labels are almost always found on the labels of best-selling products and supermarkets. Despite this, the state of our environment is deteriorating alarmingly. Road traffic, industrial production, the use of synthetic sprays and fertilisers in intensive agriculture, the ubiquitous mobile phone taxes, the use of nuclear energy, the amount of smog, the poisons in our homes and, not least, the poisons in our food are all growing to alarming proportions. As early as the 1950s, the German Professor Eichholz warned of the pollution of the Earth and introduced the term 'toxische Gesamtsituation' (toxic overall situation). Since then, environmental movements have grown stronger and states have held international conferences to try to reach agreements to curb the damage. But while these efforts are moving forward at a snail's pace, the destruction of our natural assets is moving at the speed of a fast train."


Today, we would change the text like this: the destruction of our natural assets is moving at the speed of a supersonic airplane...


The calendar covers architectural biology, which treats our houses and buildings as our third skin, , organic farming, genetically modified food, peacekeeping, the witch's wick, transport, cooking, and many other topics, both familiar and less familiar.


The text of the calendar was collected, selected, compiled and partly written by Dr. Judit Benda

Réka Könczey, Andrea S. Nagy's Green Day Guide was used for the texts of the calendars.

Other authors are Bea Lugosi, Ágnes Győrffy and Miklós Puky.


The calendars were published two years in a row, in 2005 and 2006, but at the time we fell on deaf ears: we could not find a bookshop or a stationery shop willing to distribute them.
