    BERLIN GOES ZERO WASTE 🤩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or at least that's what the district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg strives for in the next couple of years. This part of the capital city is known for its club-scene and a lot of Spätis (small supermarkets that are open until late at night). 290.000 people live in this area with a lot of tourist & visitors who come for the thriving subculture. That causes a lot of trash and it's quite common for people to leave their stuff behind as it is kind of a "thing". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's quite challenging for the city to keep their streets clean. That's why they came up with the "Zero-Waste-Concept" that includes six measures to prevent and/or reduce waste: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👨🏻‍🍳 Installing fixed grill stations in parks, that can be reserved online (as it is common in Vienna), optionally handing out matching equipment for rental 🌳 Setting up a living lab for the residents to participate in this projects and come up with their own ideas (as Paris successfully did this) 🛒 Promote zero waste shopping with the supermarkets and consulting them on how to offer unpackaged products 🛠 Installing "libraries" for different things like tools, electronic devices or toys 🍾 Installing special surfaces next to bins for plastic & glas bottles, as they can be returned to supermarkets directly #pfandgehörtdaneben 🚬 Ballot bins for cigarettes. It's not zero waste per se, but fancy looking bins animate smokers to throw their cigarette butts into them - so that's a win! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We support the district in heading into the right direction and are excited to see the city transform! What more ideas would you suggest? Is your city planning something similar? Let us know! 💬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @berliner_zeitung ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cleanupnetwork #cleanup #litterpick #waronwaste #littering #nolitter #noplastic #plasticfree #lesswaste #plastikfrei #plastik #wastefree #reducewaste #trashtag #onemillionactsofgood #healthyplanet #forabetterfuture #berlin #zerowaste

    Well hello 🇹🇭 Thailand, welcome to the #noplastic crew! 👋🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The country decided to ban plastic bags at their supermarkets and for the past eight days, Twitter is flooded with people's creative ways to carry their shopping 😄 We love it and are all here for it! Too bad we didn't see some funny responses here in Germany... or did we just miss it? 🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are aware that Thailand still has a lot of work to do in regards of #plasticban - but we are here to celebrate a first step and encourage you to see the positive aspects of this change, too! ✨ PS: If you find this amazing Britney-fan on Instagram, we want you to tag him! We could only find him on Twitter, but wanted to spread the #goodvibes on this platform as well 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: twitter.com/get_grace_gat, twitter.com/3xyZNKEO9sfe0eb, Worachet Empia, Lelo’z BangterBank ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cleanupnetwork #cleanup #litterpick #waronwaste #littering #nolitter #plasticfree #lesswaste #plastikfrei #plastik #wastefree #reducewaste #trashtag #onemillionactsofgood #healthyplanet
