In the summer of 2018, I got into sustainability because I experienced the hottest summer ever in my home state (a record that was topped again in 2019). At that time, I got my first pedelec and started cycling again after years of abstinence, I (consciously) ate vegan food for the first time at World Food Trip, where I also got inspired to work towards zero-waste. These experiences inspired me to reflect on and research about my personal footprint and to look for ways to reduce it.
Here is a collection of things I have read/bought/done/created/changed so far in order to make my life more sustainable. I do not want to convert anyone, but hope that this serves as an inspiration to change your life in certain details and achieving sustainability (see the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for a high-level inspiration). The following will name a few brands, so here is a disclaimer: I am not getting any provision and I am not making advertisements. I just want to point you to companies/brands that (IMHO) act sustainably or produce sustainable goods.
