On your way out we would like to give you some general advice for a sustainable lifestyle. Usually we do not know the ecological backpack of the products we buy. And we can't determine all the effects of our lifestyle on all the people living on our planet now or in the future, as these effects are much too complex. But we can contribute to protecting our planet and thereby improving people's lives by reflecting more on our consumption.
The six R's were developed as easy to remember guidelines and can help you to reduce the ecological backpack of your personal lifestyle.
Rethink: Rethink if you really need to buy a new device or product or if you can do without it. This is especially important if you still have a "old" device that still works.
Refuse: Instead of buying something: borrow, lend, share and swap!
Reduce: When buying new devices or products, pay attention that they are efficient and durable.
Re-use: Buy second-hand products! Try to use electronic devices, furniture or clothing as long as possible. If an item has stopped being to your liking and you want to dispose of it, instead of throwing it away, check out alternatives like selling or giving it away for free.
Repair: Try to repair broken devices instead of throwing them out. Before deciding to buy a new device, find out if there are spare parts available to repair the old device.
Recycle: Apart from sorting your garbage correctly to make recycling easier for disposal companies, you can also recycle some things at home. Sometimes products can be used for other purposes than originally intended for, if not as a whole then at least some parts of it.
