What is preventing you from living more sustainably?

The first steps

Routines often prevent people from living more sustainably. Find your levers to make your life more sustainable.

The first step

Consuming sustainably makes sense, is tasty, healthy and can even be cost-saving. Give yourself a jolt, get over old, unsustainable routines. Anyone can get started, and: You make a difference - for yourself, for society and for the environment.

Product information and rules of thumb help in everyday life. Our helpers for sustainable consumption offer you guidance. When big decisions are made and purchases are made, setting the course is particularly important. There are some conditions that fundamentally influence sustainable consumption and lifestyles: Where do I live? How do i live Where do I work and how do I get there? What are my consumption preferences? What do I really like? Which vacation suits me?

Find your starting point

Anyone can get started. Which topic is of particular importance to you: Would you like to pay attention to fair trade, your personal carbon footprint and your own health? Do you want to invest your money responsibly while promoting sustainable projects? Do you have a major investment in the house? Would you like to save energy and advance the energy transition?

Where you start to make your consumption habits more sustainable is entirely up to you and your options. Sustainability is a process in which the challenges and issues are constantly evolving - just like your life situation.

Political consumption

By choosing sustainable products and services, your banknote becomes a voting slip. Use it for your goals. The more often you choose the more sustainable product alternative, the greater the pressure on companies to offer products and services that consistently work towards sustainable development. With your purchase decision, demand responsibility from companies and show that you, as a citizen, advocate laws, framework conditions and rules for sustainable business.

Live the alternative to the “cheap is cool” mentality. Because if we just pay attention to the price and buy cheap, someone else pays a high price. Talk to your family and friends: what could be done differently, what could not be changed under any circumstances? Develop new ideas together about what you would like to contribute to the preservation of the environment and more social justice.
