Eco Shopper instead of plastic bags

Eco Shopper instead of Plastic Bags

Much fuss about plastic bags. Supermarkets use abolishment as an eco heroic action.

While the practical, but under-fire plastic bag is available at some trade chains fee-based (about 20 Euro Cents), environmentalists are skeptical if a fee will put off buyers and let them rethink. German food companies in turn sell the abolition of plastic bags in their stores as an eco heroic action. Who walks mindfully through these stores will quickly discover superfluous plastic packaging. Food to go as portioned fruits, salads for lunch to sushi packed in the environmentally harmful and unhealthy plastic containers. At the fruit and vegetable counter plastic bags are still available. Window dressing for the hurried consumer! And for eco shopper you have to hunt.

The EU prescribes to reduce the use of plastic bags by the end of 2019 to a maximum of 90 and by the end of 2025 to a maximum of 40 pieces per person per year. Nothing is easier than to avoid plastic bags. Build up your ecological conscience. Because our reusable shopping bags fit into any handbag, in a backpack, in any briefcase. There are no longer any excuses.

Eco Shopper and Fruit- and Vegetable Bags made of Organic Cotton

The only and sustainable alternative for the plastic bag: Drop it! And use ecological alternatives. For that this works, Greenpicks presents you eco shopper and fruit- and vegetable bags made of certified organic cotton and other sustainable materials. Based on greenpicks.de/en recommendations, on our practical experiences and the most popular products that go through the online sales counter.

The Best Drinking Bottles for On The Go

Refillable Drinking Bottles for On The Go

As a rejection from PET bottles adults use more and more often refillable bottles on the go and equip their children with the practical drinking bottles. Whether for the office, university, sport or on the go, filled with water, spritzer with apple juice, black currant juice or cherry juice or other mixtures you have always your thirst quencher with you. For lovers of hot drinks pollution-free hydro flasks insulated bottles are offered. Instead buying sugary sodas on your way or in the canteen, with this durable water bottles you save money and the environment.

Almost every child has a bottle in its kindergarten bag or school bag. Eco-conscious parents give their offspring practical drinking bottles made from bioplastics, stainless steel or glass coated with a neoprene suit – after all the child shall take its favourite drink free of plasticizers, BPA and phthalate.

But not only being without harmful substances is an important criterion. Thus the juice or tea does not flood the children’s bag or briefcase, they should be leakproof. And of course, the bottle should last a long time and should be recyclable. Combined you find these properties in three materials: glass, stainless steel and bioplastics. For each material greenpicks.de/en has recommendations – based on our practical experience and the feedback from the Greenpicks community.

In vino veritas – The high-quality Upcycling Table Lamp illustris+ gives enlightenment

high-quality Upcycling Table Lamp illustris+

The designer Sven H. Ricken from Essen, Germany, had the enlightenment for his timeless table lamp illustris+ when he thought about the disposal of empty wine bottles in the waste glass. “The shape of a bottle is known to us all from the smallest childhood and accompanies us for a lifetime. It is perfect in form but is used only for the storage of the contents. Instead of always just throwing the bottles in the waste glass to make new bottles, I got the idea to let live the product and give it a new function.” says the talented designer. After a longer developmental period, then came the series illustris+. Continue reading Upcycling Table Lamp illustris+
