    General Information

    Live better without plastic. The plastic savings book.

    Smarticular shows us how easy it can be to avoid plastic with its plastic savings book. The importance of avoiding plastic is made clear by the quote from the Fraunhofer Institute right at the beginning: "It takes up to 2,000 years for plastic to completely degrade in the environment." Almost everyone is familiar with the images of plastic waste carpets on the world's oceans, knows about the danger of microplastics and feels powerless in the face of the flood of plastic in our everyday lives. And even if our own efforts to avoid plastic seem small, they are still as important as they are effective. Every little step in the right (plastic-free) direction helps, because in sum, these supposedly small measures can bring about great things - loosely based on an African proverb: If many small people in many small places do many small things, then they will change the face of the world.

    The best strategy against plastic: do it yourself.

    In this book, smarticular presents the best alternatives to short-lived plastic products, as well as strategies for plastic avoidance and ways to deal sustainably with the raw material plastic. The heart of the book are the many recipes and instructions for DIY, because this is the easiest way to avoid packaging plastic. At the same time, you have full control over the ingredients of food, body care products and cleaners, which are also often healthier and more environmentally friendly than their store-bought counterparts. And by the way, you can not only save waste and plastic, but also money.
    The publisher smarticular supports the association Küste gegen Plastik e.V. and the development of the app ReplacePlastic with part of the proceeds from the sale of the plastic savings book. With the app, you can quickly and easily tell the suppliers of products that you would like to see the respective product in packaging without or with less plastic. You can read more about this on page 10 in the book. – From the Net into a Book.

    Usually, there is a website in addition to a film, book, etc. Here it’s the other way round: The ideas portal was launched first and quickly became a digital reference address for eco-friends and the health-conscious, providing tips, ideas and recipes for sustainable living. Committed people who want to take things into their own hands, do them themselves and try them out to make their lives a little easier and greener visit the page. Now the team behind the portal has turned the online guide into several printed publications. The book series “Selber machen statt kaufen” (Do it yourself instead of buying), for example, reveals to its readers shopping alternatives and approaches to sustainable living. The smarticular team focuses on topics like home remedies, saving plastic, or avoiding waste in the manuals.
