How to be More Sustainable in Berlin

As far as sustainability goes, we’re super lucky to be living in Berlin. I’m reminded of this every time I speak to friends and family back home.

The Bio Picknick

Bio Picknick

With this wonderful weather there is one thing people from the city are craving for: A picknick outside in nature. The ecoShowroom at Almstadtstraße is organizing exactly that. Together with the Möbelwerkstadt Werder they are inviting to a Bio Picknick and a walk through the woods at the Ribbecker Forst on June 19th 2011. At the picknick you will be able to try and taste the products available at the ecoShowroom. During the walk through the forest you will learn more about sustainability of forestry. You can still register for the little tour until Monday June 6th. Learn more about it at the website of the ecoShowroom.
