Healthy oceans are crucial in the fight against climate change, as they are one of the most important CO2 reservoirs in our ecosystem - so it is essential to protect them. At the same time, CO2 emissions are their natural enemy, because while our waters are getting warmer and warmer due to global warming, they also absorb around a third of the carbon dioxide emitted. This leads to their own permanent warming and acidification - with drastic consequences for the environment and living beings.
Will the world go back to the way it was? And, uh... do we even want it to? Because while we sit at home and do our bit to #flattenthecurve, many changes large and small are happening to our climate. An unexpectedly positive effect that literally lets our environment "breathe a sigh of relief" during this time of crisis. What effects can be seen after just a few weeks? What the world might look like after Corona? And what can we do to ensure that this positive impact continues in the future? We met sustainability expert Dr. Colin Bien for an interview.
For more than eight years, Sofia's followers have been able to join the likeable Hamburg native on Instagram. From vegetarian recipes, fashion hauls and virtual yoga to exciting trips - the popular model takes her fans everywhere. Why is sustainability so close to her heart? What impact would she like to leave on the world? And how does she manage to remain so optimistic even in the current situation? We met Sofia for a short interview.
Travel, food, fashion - there' s really no topic that the likeable Salzburg native Nina Radman doesn't write about under her pseudonym "Berries & Passion". We met the blogger for an interview about Impact, her greatest adventure and sustainability.
Blue skies over China, clear water in Venice - what effects does the current situation have on our climate? Why is it so important to reduce our CO2 emissions? And what does "climate neutral" actually mean? We asked our friends and experts from ClimatePartner for answers in our interview.

Why to plant trees?

Trees are by far the best way to extract CO2 from the atmosphere - and thus make a significant contribution not only to climate protection but also to the protection of our valuable resource water. What exactly forests do for our ecosystem and why reforestation makes a significant contribution to global climate protection - we met Simon Tangerding from the Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald e.V. for an interview.

High five for Hygiene

Our dear colleague Manuela Salmina-Petersen is a graduate engineer with a focus on cosmetics technology and has been working in the field of product development for over two decades. We interviewed Manuela (in her home office) about the most urgent questions concerning hand hygiene:

The reason Why

Personal interaction is extremely important to us. That's why we have taken the time over the past few days to engage in direct discourse with you and answer as many of your questions as possible about our cooperation with Beiersdorf. We would also like to share with you on our blog these questions and answers as well as our motives for this partnership.
"Vegan ist ungesund" - what now? And just like that, you are in the clutches of the two charming influencers Aljosha Muttardi and Gordon Prox. Whether it’s sarcasm or irony, what sustainability really means and where size actually matter in the end, Aljosha, one half of the duo, bears all in a very personal interview.
Effective immediately we, STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME!, are collaborating with Beiersdorf and therefore operating as an independent company within the skin-care company’s brand universe. We will certainly continue to independently promote resource protection and sustainable consumption and to espouse our purpose…
The 30-year-old is one of the most important "greenfluencer" icons today and inspires fans and followers on her social media channels with her brutal honesty. In our interview she reveals what sustainability means to her, what her plan B is and why more is sometimes more.
There are a lot of things that there should be more of in the world and you just can't get enough of them. Things which prove that size can be everything in life. And that's what the following blog article is all about.
This Friday is Black Friday. And yet we are of the opinion that the consumptionon that day has driven to the point of perversion in recent years. Instead we join the 4th Global Climate Strike of Fridays for Future to stand up for climate protection. Who knows how many Black Fridays are still ahead of us.

Rejoice, Reuse, Recycle

Our Christmas presents are made to have new life breathed into them even after exchanging gifts - because nothing gets past us. So the packaging of our All Natural Change Advent Calendar and Kit can be used as super last-minute gift packaging. Or donated to an. Here are a few tips:

Yes, we strike!

Along with many other social businesses, friends and acquaintances, we will stop working on Friday, September 20th. We are joining Fridays for Future, the global climate change movement that calls on all generations worldwide to take to the streets together.

Waste Free Oceans

We humans are one of the greatest threats to our precious resource, water. According to NABU (Naturschutzbund Deutschland), we dump up to 10 million tonnes of waste into our water every year. An estimated 8 million tonnes of this is plastic waste, which often takes up to 600 years to decompose.
New Year's resolutions are so 2018. We're not even gonna go there. Why? Because we don’t believe in seasonal resolutions. Or mandates. But what we do still feel like doing: Change.

They are the nimble helpers of Santa Claus and the Christ child - and are especially under stress at Christmas time: the postmen and women of this world. According to statistics, around 330 million parcels are delivered in Germany during the Christmas season alone. We would like to thank these colleagues of ours. And we met our very own personal favourite messenger, Detlef, for an interview.
According to statistics, Germans spend an average of 472.30 € per capita on Christmas gifts - and the trend is rising. This means that the festival of love is so strongly associated with buying and giving today that the human aspect is almost lost. We are faced with the question: Is giving really so good? Or should we simply not give anything at all?
No, this is not a typo. We have deliberately turned Black Friday into Back Friday: While you save 20% on our entire assortment, we are giving back 20% of our income and donating it to worldwide water projects.
Whether “harvesting” water from fog, a drinking water kiosk or 32 filters that filter 3.2 million litres of water - with our GOOD WATER PROJECTS initiative we have already done a lot. And to be fair, we didn’t do it alone, but with your help in particular: our community.
