I like the beginning of a new year. The beginning of something new at all. Restart all beginning, new opportunities, new risks and without ballast. Therefore I intend anything, before the new year has begun and am so or so definitely not under pressure.

That works well for me and as I went to the thing with veganism and sustainability years ago: at my own pace, and with many small steps. Here are 10 tips that you can trudge in the new year with more awareness of our environment through everyday and doing all at the same time something good for you.

The fear of consistent decisions can be very debilitating and wrap yourself in the worst case scenario like a nasty chewing gum to the own motivation. It follows gridlock, coupled with irregular flashing “I would, I should, I could” – thoughts. A new year can be a great opportunity to stop a moment. Change is reserved not only disciplined, elite people with too much time and money. Change has nothing to do with education, age or budget, but with the will to stand up, shake and times carefully dip the tiny toe into new waters. You can at any time withdraw the foot, put Grandma’s knitting socks again about it and act as if nothing had happened.

Change has many facets, she may be radical, continuous, persistent or entertaining, but in any case motivierender, BarCamp, and more exciting than ever same trickle through the daily life. It is nice to make his life a little more sustainable, believe me. It’s nice to give something back to our environment, from which we benefit often just so and much too of course. It is nice to be good to yourself. Even if it sounds for an entry in the poetry album:

If you positivity, will get back Positivät. And it’s not hard, I promise.

I can formally the outcry be heard: what is with milk in your coffee? Milk into the cereal? Cake? Cocoa latte Haselnussvanilleespressochai? And anyway, meat is so much worse?

, Cow’s milk in my opinion among the cruelest animal products we consume daily. Here the facts:

the calf is removed after one to three days the mother cow, to grow into yourself to the milk cow or land as a male calf after a few months as veal Escalope on the plate each year are dairy cows artificially impregnated from the age of two years and up to the time when they bring no longer the “milk power” and are slaughtered (sometimes with fetus in the belly) on average, a cow can be 15 years old , their lifetime is just times an average of 5 years in the industry

the Tip:

as alternatives waiting for you soy milk, hemp milk, oat milk, spelt milk, rice milk, coconut milk, Cashewmilch, Macadamiamilch, almond milk and hazelnut milk.

can be made yourself at home a variety of these varieties in the Blender I recommend always the organic alternative, since she usually environmentally friendly was manufactured and for soy milk free of genetic manipulation is for the Müsli I recommend oat milk (I take the dm or Alnatura) for soy milk coffee (I often take that from the refrigerated section of Alpro, lightly sugared and unfortunately not bio) , but free of genetic modification and for the cultivation of no rain forest is being cleared) for cocoa and all drinks with foam: in a 1:3 ratio of soy milk (definitely Alpro, which foams wonderfully) and because the tastes oat milk, nutty easy to bake and cook I take always soy milk, no matter what kind of

I’m under no illusions: entire collections, with the diversity and the style of H & M and co. are comparable , you are looking for in terms of vegan, fair and sustainable unfortunately still always in vain. But always are a few great items, even if they are not always so easy.

Tip:

, Basics like plain T-Shirts, longsleeves, or leggings, that there is now even in large fashion houses with at least a proportion of organic cotton but are a relatively simple and good entry. Whom the production conditions heart are also, find great and affordable basics with these brands and stores (this is my personal choice, no claim to be exhaustive):

DearGoods (Berlin, Munich and online, vegan) Loveco (Berlin, vegan) Veganista (Munich, vegan) V-angle (tends to be rather cool, vegan shop Switzerland) Friday (my information after all products are vegan) Armedangels (the logo with the Angel is often out on the T-Shirt back in to see small) , that not everybody likes and some clothing items include leather or wool) (particularly the dariadaria collection, 100% vegan is suggestive) American Apparel (the majority of the collection is not organic, but produced in the United States, AA processed also leather, wool and silk) Jan ‘N June (fancier cuts, vegan) Marvel (not 100% vegan) Studio Jux (not 100% vegan)

a month has 31 days , where you at least three times to eat per day. 93 meals and a lot of times these are in the best of cases. Namely a week – pure herbal to take one of four meals of it -, at least a more enriching experience will be even in the unlikely event of a gustatory disappointment.

Tip:

Of the American “Meatless Monday” has not only the advantage of a catchy alliteration, but also, that fixed appointments to comply is more likely than “sometime soon” to begin. Plant-based diets is the many prejudices despite not necessarily more expensive, for environmentally-friendly and healthier in my opinion (that there is no clear scientific evidence but).

Now still the question remains: In the restaurant or even Cook? The latter protects the money bag, training and offers a guaranteed interesting evening in combination with friends. But of course at least an equally great adventure is going to a vegan restaurant. I would however recommend a previously researched and highly-rated location for the premiere. And this location can be also a burger snack! The best vegan Restaurant Finder is the app “Happy Cow” (Yes, the cow is purple, no I think not very successful design genius), with a worldwide near-complete collection of all vegan and vegetarian restaurants and those with plant-based options. I’m Fürs promised a fan of natural dishes, without great substitutes and if it goes, naturally healthy. So also my choice of vegan, German-speaking Foodblogs and cookbooks for first steps explained:

eat this.org kathiescloud.com veggi.es oh-sophia.net the Lotus and the artichoke cookbooks (there also in German) by Justin p. Moore my recipes for a better world by Alicia Silverstone Attila Hildmann cookbooks (Attila is quite controversial and in some respects not entirely unfounded, but his books are suitable for novice super , most of all I like the vegan for fit)

as I described in this article, it is not so hard to find vegan cosmetics. That finding, conjures up the then still actually durable makeup on the face, is something else again.

Tip:

For the first step I would advise you to take (except for face creams and toners) only on natural cosmetics and only pay attention to animal testing and animal ingredients. And of which you will find an excellent choice even for dm and co. A few more suggestions:

Hair: Paul Mitchell face: Santaverde (cream and toners, natural cosmetics) makeup: Barry M. (not everything is vegan!) Nail Polish: Bazaar Kure

I love to travel and do it as often as I can. Within Germany I use the aircraft but only in cases, when the alternative is more than twice as expensive (you can counteract this mostly with former posting) or I must come from A to B quickly.

Tip:

I choose the car only on routes that are too long to walk or bicycle and too complicated for public transport (get twice is not complicated!) At rides I’ve made as many good and less good experiences and decided for me, that I draw out once all other alternatives most often I travel with Deutsche Bahn or the HKX (Cologne <-> Hamburg), but also increasingly with… Coaches: Munich, Berlin and Hamburg I drove coach with the ADAC and find this way to travel even more convenient than the train. On board, there’s free Wi-Fi and not insignificant many movies to the view, air-conditioning, seats with table and lots of legroom. The buses are usually understaffed, but I am one of those people who are less jittery with a seat reservation shortly before departure for short distances I’m almost always the bike or my two fortunately healthy feet, because the sport unit is immediately done

I wish you a wonderful year and have a good amount of motivation and courage for your goals! Let’s get you, are good to you and don’t forget:
every step counts and feels really good < 3
