What is this commitment about?
We encounter trash almost everywhere in our everyday lives: on the streets, in tree grates, or in parks. Instead of ignoring it - as we honestly do in most cases - you can just pick it up next time. Whether it's outside your front door, on your daily commute to work, going for a walk, or even jogging (#Plogging).
What are 5-Minute Commitments?
With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate volunteering into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved for people and nature in your neighborhood.
All you need is a small garbage bag, possibly a pair of gloves - if you don't have any on hand, a handkerchief will also help in an emergency - and an open eye, and you can make your daily routes more beautiful and garbage-free for you, our nature and your fellow human beings.
By the way: Plogging - which is, collecting garbage while jogging - is also a wonderful communal activity with friends.
This 5-minute commitment does not require any special prerequisites.
You can easily integrate the collection of trash in your neighborhood into your everyday life.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
