Climate-friendly school shopping - tips in the video

Our world is changing, and so are our attitudes. From bright white paper to recycled notebooks, from disposable pens to refills, from short-lived plastic items to sustainable solutions.

The initiative "Clever einkaufen für die Schule" ("Clever Shopping for Schools") has been campaigning for environmentally friendly school shopping for 13 years. Since then, a lot has happened in the media. Low in resources, low in pollutants and rich in ideas for an environmentally and climate-friendly everyday school life. The video „Klimafit beim Schuleinkauf“ (Climate-friendly School Shopping) is aimed at parents, educators and all those who, in addition to the great solutions for the future, are already looking for alternatives when it comes to everyday products such as school supplies. The film offers practical first-hand tips and helpful information for making a sustainable choice when it comes to school supplies. From climate activists to school headmasters, from chemical experts and consumer advocates to representatives of parents' associations - all invite you to take action.
