Schöneberg stands for diversity!
The district that was the epicentre of West Berlin's creative scene in the 1980s now stands for diversity and sustainability. In the Akazienkiez; as well as in Barbarossa- and Goltzstr., all the way to Winterfeldmarkt, a colourful coexistence of bars, cafés and shops pulsates, offering an interesting mix: so we discover many shops that deal with the current topic of "sustainability". Discover with us:
1.) Slow fashion stands for sustainable, conscious and ethical fashion. It stands for a change in consciousness, the contemporary reaction to the production of mass-produced fast fashion. It is about quality and individuality, about appreciation and rethinking. Slow fashion also includes "fair fashion", i.e. the whole issue of "fairly produced" and "fairly traded fashion", as well as concepts of clothes swapping and clothes renting.
2) Upcycling in many facets; with the return to local handicraft production, of clothing, hats, bags, furniture, jewellery etc.
3) Slow Food; means regionally produced food that is harvested and processed or produced in the area surrounding Berlin, such as the basic foodstuff: bread.
4) Natural cosmetics, vegan, Ayurvedic, pH-neutral, free of microplastics, conserving resources, avoiding waste.
One goal is common to all: a contribution to a sustainable society!
