In the bathroom without pollutants

Linda Green and Verde Wood have been living together for some months. Renovated three-room flat in an old building, kitchen, hall, bathroom in a popular Cologne city quarter. When looking for a place to live, the newly in love couple, among other things, concentrated on a central location, short distances to work and a home that was free from harmful substances.

After all, the owner put emphasis on green building in kitchen and bathroom. Natural raw materials such as wood were used. The long-lasting material comes from forests in which new trees are growing and bears the FSC seal for sustainable forestry. In the eco bath you can find tiles and water-saving fittings.

With Linda Green, sustainability has also moved in the newly enamoured household. In kitchen and household, she has always exchanged kitchen helpers and storage boxes by sustainable alternatives made of natural or recycled materials when the kitchen utensils were broken and worn. But in the bathroom there is still a lot of plastic accessories. A slip resistant bath mat and a shelf for personal care products are still missing.

Goal: Eco bath with individual character

The goal of Linda Green: to equip the bathroom environmentally friendly and to ban harmful substances. She was also able to convince her partner. And so they sent an email to Greenpicks. We gave them the following advice:

Highly popular „Heldenmarkt“ Berlin

There was a large crowd last weekend at the „Heldenmarkt“ in Berlin. In long lines, visitors waited patiently at the cash points to get admitted to the fair for sustainable consumption at the Postbahnhof in Friedrichshain.

And the wait was worth it! There was a wide range of sustainable alternatives from different walks of life to be seen and experience. In the ground floor mainly suppliers of all kinds of culinary delights lined up together seductively. For me as a chocolate fan, the choice of fair trade chocolate varieties was like paradise. Anyone who found the way to the upper floor after these temptations, could enjoy a truly diverse selection of organic / fair clothing, upcycling products, household goods, eco toys, furniture, gift ideas and more. Especially the proportion of exhibitors who follow the thought of Recycling/Upcycling was according to my impression even higher this time than in the previous year. I was particularly impressed by the varied range of Upcycling Deluxe. Bags, hats, belts and fashion accessories from car tires, records, coffee and rice sacks form a balanced unit of upcycling products. And I think that this is just the beginning, in view of the fact that there are infinitely discarded materials or declared to waste recyclables.

In addition, you could also learn about alternative investments, green energy providers and health insurance companies.

A stage show with raffle, green fashion show and vegetables cooking show, lectures and workshops, the well-frequented Repair café and a delicious organic vegetarian catering completed the program. All in all a great event!

A large crowd also at the following shops of Eco- and Upcycling-Market, that were represented on “Heldenmarkt” Berlin:
