Greenstyle Foundation

The Greenstyle foundation is a non-profit organisation - in cooperation with the Weisse Arena Group and dedicated people and businesses from the Flims Laax Falera holiday destination. It is dedicated to preserving and protecting our environment.

What is the purpose of the foundation?

If we're not currently working on making your holiday in LAAX an unforgettable one, then we must be out in the great outdoors. We enjoy slopes with freshly fallen snow, biking on secluded single trails, scaling mountains and fishing in wild stretches of river. In everything we do, we recognise how unique our natural landscape is and that it is our duty to protect it.

What happens with the money?

We use the money donated to support non-profit projects in the LAAX holiday destination and throughout our entire region.

We support projects which

  • promote environmental education and research
  • protect the climate and reduce the negative effects of climate change
  • promote environmentally friendly technologies and renewable energies
  • reduce hazardous emissions
  • ensure sustainable handling of natural resources
  • serve to keep the region clean and prevent waste from being disposed of inappropriately or in public places
  • protect and develop ecosystems and their flora and fauna as well as natural recreational areas and nature parks, or lead to an improved natural environment in the settlement area
  • promote ecological and regional products and foods, as well as their production methods and fair trade
  • which enable the social integration of marginalised, disabled or unwell persons
