    What an eventful week! 💥 As you might know, Thomas took the train 🚊 to Berlin to speak at Facebook's and UNESCO GAP's workshop on Tuesday! And while he was busy presenting our cause, connecting with interesting people such as the former UN youth delegate Rebecca Freitag (@beckyfreitag) and Stephan von Orlow (Zigrattenpfand), he kinda forgot to take us with him.. We'll work on that next time 😜 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Luckily, the organizers shared some pictures with us, so we can do a little recap! Many well-known people presented their understanding of sustainability-concepts - and so did Thomas 🙌🏻 Everybody took notes and was listening carefully to the speakers' different aspects and approaches to sustainable education through social networks. The Cleanup Network has different channels to achieve this goal, for example with our different Facebook groups where we do a lot of community building, exchange information, plan actions and so much more! 👫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe through to 8 of the (in our opinion) best impressions from that day - including some very yummy & sustainable breakfast, other incredible speakers and Thomas in action! They even had the wall in our CI! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have a great start into the new week! 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @pascalrohe_photography #cleanupnetwork #cleanup #litterpick #waronwaste #littering #nolitter #noplastic #plasticfree #lesswaste #plastikfrei #plastik #wastefree #berlin #workshop #sustainable #socialnetwork

    This week, we visited @wouahou.wouahou , Stuttgart's alternative to the Christmas market in the city center (don't worry, no one knows how to pronounce it either 😄). What we like about it is the chilled atmosphere, local & individual products and most importantly: grilling "Stockbrot" over the camp fire (just German things 💁🏼‍♀) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what we actually love about this festival is how clean the Marienplatz is! 😍 If you remember: the Cleanup Network would probably not exist if it wasn't for this place. Usually, it's trash-filled and we put a lot of work into getting and keeping it clean. Not even the new trash cans seemed to be the perfect solution for it. But this week, it has been surprisingly trash-free! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We discussed the reasons behind it and believe that visitors of an alternative winter village are more aware of their environment than the usual groups that hang around Marienplatz. Also, every cup comes with a (kind of hefty) deposit of 6€. So everyone thinks twice about leaving their stuff behind when you get a small fortune back 😅 Do you think that this could be a good solution for more products. for example an ice cream cup? Let us know your ideas! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS: We asked the organizers of WOUAHOU if you can bring your own cup, they said yes 😊 And it worked! Enjoy your weekend 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cleanupnetwork #cleanup #litterpick #waronwaste #littering #nolitter #noplastic #plasticfree #lesswaste #plastikfrei #plastik #wastefree #pfand #pfandbecher #stuttgart #marienplatz

    Hi from #Berlin! The petition #nuraufwunsch is finally online! 🚀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We already covered this topic a couple weeks ago, but for those who are new to this: @letztewerbung wants to change the system of receiving unaddressed advertisement in German mailboxes. Instead of having a sticker that says no to flyers, plastic wrapped leaflets etc., they want to implement the opt-in method. Just like with email newsletters 📨 So everybody gets what they want, we reduce waste (1,2 billion kilograms per year!) and resources in the first place 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Head to our link in bio to get to the petition. We need 50,000 signatures to get it to our German Bundestag. This might be the easiest way to reduce trash, so let's demand it! 💪🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to spread the word, head to the website of Letzte Werbung and get your own social media kit and offline petition lists for your own cleanup gatherings. For us, it worked like a charm 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you already signed the petition? Let us know in the comments 💬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cleanupnetwork #cleanup #litterpick #waronwaste #littering #nolitter #noplastic #plasticfree #lesswaste #plastikfrei #plastik #wastefree #petition #reducewaste #bittekeinewerbung
