    While reading about water justice I learned how privileged my region is. Though many Germans prefer bottled water over tap water. Germany is the second largest consumer of bottled water per capita in the EU. According to the Deutsche Umwelthilfe (German Environmental Aid), 2 mio disposable plastic bottles are consumed every hour. That results into 470,000 tonnes of waste yearly. This must stop!

    Great learning that frozen vegetables aren't that bad compared to fresh ones when they are stored for a while. E.g. frozen green peas retain more of their vitamin C compared to fresh peas that have been stored for five days.

    Unbelievable that >2 billion people are without food or a healthy diet on a regular basis or without having access to safe drinking water.

    Learned about healthy and ecofriendly cleaning. Doesn’t always need to be chemicals, good old baking soda or vinegar also serve well!

    Just learned about the very high drinking water quality in Germany, available for everyone directly through our faucets. And how important it is to contribute keeping water quality high.

      People get for granted the fact they can drink water from faucets. There are still so many places in the world where you cannot do this. We have to definitely appreciate more how privileged we are.
