What is this commitment about? The purchase in stores with unpackaged food can save a lot of plastic and other waste. Thus, you actively contribute to waste reduction and can also decide for yourself how much food you really want to buy. You also avoid the consumption of microplastics with that very easily.
What are 5-minute commitments? With our 5-Minute commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate volunteering yinto your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually engage with people and nature in your neighborhood.
All you need to do to make this commitment is to visit a store with unpackaged food near you. For your visit, simply bring as many containers (empty jars or Tupperware) as you would like to purchase goods. However, stores often have additional empty containers on site that you can use.
No special prerequisites are needed for this commitment.
You can get this commitment done in no time.
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
