Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

On 31st October 2018, British activists assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. The next few weeks were a whirlwind. Six thousand rebels converged on London to peacefully block five major bridges across the Thames. Trees were planted in the middle of Parliament Square, and hole was dug there to bury a coffin representing our future. Rebels super-glued themselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as they read a letter to the Queen.

Extinction Rebellion was born.

The call to rebel swiftly became global, with branches popping up the following week in Europe, the US, and soon after the world over. Leaderless and truly global, each new branch makes the movement stronger, bringing in new perspectives, wisdom, expertise, energy and inspiration.

We are working relentlessly, building our movement in preparation for phase three, a global rebellion that will begin on the 7th of October 2019. So come and join us. Rebel for life. For the planet. For our children’s children’s futures. There is so much work to be done.

Share your stuff with neighbours and strangers

Share your stuff with neighbours and strangers

Such a great project. They also have a map so you can share with more people than just your direct neighbours.

Pumpipumpe is committed to more conscious and sustainable consumption. What do we really have to own and what are we able to easily share? How often do we actually use our power drill? How many vacuum cleaners does an apartment building need?

Pumpipumpe makes all the useful things which are rarely used that are hidden in homes, cupboards, boxes and basements, visible. The mailbox stickers draw attention neighbours who pass on a daily basis. The goal is to create a dialogue between neighbors and discuss the potentials of urban neighborhoods being real active networks, especially in the age of increasing digitization.

Pumpipumpe is not a ready to use product but a tool that can and will help you activate your own real network in the neighborhood.

Stick the stickers of the items you are willing to lend on your mailbox and then share the rest with your neighbours! Pass on the remaining stickers to your neighbours, this way you can find people who have items that you do not have. Spread the word about Pumpipumpe. The more households join in, the better it works!

Berlin store selling food without packaging

Seit November 2012 arbeiten wir, das sind Milena Glimbovski und das gesamte Team, daran, unseren Traum vom plastikfreiem und unverpackten Einkaufen wahr werden zu lassen. Neben Job und Studium wurde der Geschäftsplan geschrieben, ein Lieferantennetzwerk aufgebaut und die Finanzierung durch eine Crowdfunding-Kampagne realisiert. 2014 hieß es in Berlin Kreuzberg dann endlich “Unverpackt für alle”: Milena Glimbovski und das Team eröffnen unter großem Getöse in den Medien den ersten Laden in Berlin. Seit 2016 versenden wir in unserem Online Shop auch Non-Food Produkte rund um den Zero Waste Lifestyle an all diejenigen, die nicht um die Ecke von Original Unverpackt leben. 2017 kam dann das OU Magazin dazu, in dem wir unsere Leser in leicht verdaulichen Geschichten zu nachhaltigen Themen rund um Ernährung, Lifestyle, Gesellschaft, Umwelt und Zero Waste informieren. Seit Anbeginn hält Milena Vorträge rund um die Themen Nachhaltigkeit und Trends im Einzelhandel, Zero Waste und Gründertum. Hier erfahrt ihr mehr.

Swiss bags+ made from truck tarps

Swiss bags+ made from truck tarps

When I lost my wallet (also made from truck tarps) on my vacation in Madagascar, I was kind of excited to have an excuse to finally buy a product from Freitag. Read about the birth of Freitag.

In 1993, graphic designers Markus and Daniel Freitag were looking for a functional, water-repellent and robust bag to hold their creative work. Inspired by the multicolored heavy traffic that rumbled through the Zurich transit intersection in front of their flat, they developed a messenger bag from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes and car seat belts. This is how the first FREITAG bags took shape in the living room of their shared apartment – each one recycled, each one unique.
