LOOK CLOSELY AND PROTECT THE CLIMATE - SHOPPING AND CONSUMER TIPS
Drinking tap water instead of buying water in PET bottles - that's even healthier
Buy regional and seasonal groceries - avoiding plastic bags
If you have a garden - grow fruit and vegetables yourself
Reduce meat consumption, because factory farming harms the environment and eating too much meat is unhealthy
Cook more often yourself to avoid controversial ingredients with poor life cycle assessments and to save energy and packaging waste
Replace environmentally harmful cleaning detergents and those with an biodegradable concentrate. Toilet stones are useless and pollute the wastewater
Instead of the standard cosmetics with toxic ingredients (aluminum or plastic) you can switch to the more tolerable organic cosmetics, or even do it yourself
There are washable alternatives for cotton pads and facial tissues in every drugstore and they have a much lower impact on the environment
Drive less car - prefer to switch to bicycle, public transport or carpooling
Reduce paper consumption and use recycled paper
Find out more about sustainable insurance and green health insurance companies - maybe a change is worthwhile here too
Also consider switching banks to GLS Bank, because it invests only in sustainable companies and projects according to very strict criteria
