I deeply care about the environment and a fair treatment of all fellow human beings. Thus, I try my best to live a sustainable life while trying not to negatively impact my lifestyle. Of course I’m not perfect, none of us is. But maybe this list will give you some inspiration and insight on what each of us can do to keep our planet clean, cold and to end poverty in the world.

Energy

Thus, my home and office is powered with renewable energy by Polarstern.

Technically spoken, I try to avoid electronic waste. My (only) Android test device is the Fairphone 1. For my main devices I think Apple is still a great choice when it comes to environmental and social responsibility as they at least care a little bit about it.

Banking

I use a social and ecological bank account at GLS Bank in Germany. I also own shares of the GLS cooperative to support their business and social engagement.

Hosting

My personal projects are hosted on Uberspace, a small company that cares about their employees. Their servers are using green energy only. My DNS and domains are managed by OVH, an eco-friendly hosting partner.

Donations

I actively support the EFF, Wikipedia, CharityWater, and some more organizations that help creating the better, fairer society I want to live in.

Food, Coffee

I mostly buy local, organic food. Besides the ideological reasons the food usually tastes much better and is healthier than the cheap food from a discounter.

This great tasting coffee is an organic, water-neutral espresso from Hydrophil. Alternatively, I love the taste of the Espresso »Preguntando Caminamos«.

Travel

Travel-wise I prefer riding my bike for inner city. For all other travels I prefer trains over planes and use my BahnCard 50 (Green/Eco) to get to my destination.
