The story behind the social startup EMERALD BERLIN

Emerald Berlin is a social startup , an initiative to motivate young minds with the thought to associate themselves to a social cause they believe in. After you’ve already read a few stories about the origins of some of the organisations we work with in our project section, I’m going to tell you a little bit more about how EMERALD BERLIN came into being and what we actually do. Write us, as always, if you have further questions, suggestions or comments. We are always very happy to hear from you. I would like to start our little story today by...

What is sustainable fashion?

Sustainable fashion - It is the entire process of fashion designed in a way to foster greater environmental sense in the process of creating, designing fashion-wear. We all hear more and more recently how important it is that we become more conscious in everyday life. And we all know that’s easier said than done. Almost all our food is packed in plastic and on the big billboards of this world models are shown to us always in the newest fashion. Often these clothes cost only a few euros. And we ask ourselves far too rarely: How can it be that...

Slavery in our shipping bag: Emerald Berlin in Panel discussion

Today’s text is about a panel discussion on the subject of slavery in the supply chain. The panel was hosted by the Münster regional group of the International Justice Mission (IJM), the world’s largest organisation fighting against slavery. Lina, one of the initiators of the evening, wrote this article for you. "Thank you, dear Lina". I point the camera at the podium, open the aperture, reduce the ISO number so that the photos are optimally exposed. The room is slowly filling up with people and the tension is rising inside me: the excitement of seeing what this evening, which we...

How I became a digital nomand - It's easy

Today we have a very special article for you. It comes from my friend Oum, who you also can see in a little interview, together with me, in the very first post on this blog. Oum has been living as a "digital nomad" for a few months now – and has chosen a working model that allows her to work from anywhere in the world. Without a permanent residence. For many of us it is a wish to combine work and travel with free time management. But it doesn’t have to be. In this article she reveals how she took...

Plastic – prohibitions and what we can do ourselves.

Plastic – prohibitions and what we can do ourselves.

At the moment everything is about plastics. Wherever we look. Even the federal government has taken care of this in an advertising campaign that is spread all over Berlin. It says, that we will soon get less for our money. Less plastic. And while I walk past at least one of these billboards every day, I ask myself more and more often who is actually responsible for all the plastic in our world and why it is so incredibly difficult to do without it. At the same moment I wonder if this is really true. Is there currently no way...
