When asked whether it was difficult to get rid of the plastic, Anke admitted that it was, especially at the very beginning of her journey. “A few years ago we did not have the options that exist in our everyday life at this moment, for instance, we couldn’t shop without plastic or use stores without packaging. I remember spending a lot of time looking for eco-friendly stores in my area! Lack of opportunity led me to decide to try some things on my own. However, even here an unforeseen circumstance arose: almost all the information available on the Internet was in English. Thus, I came up with the idea of creating a blog where I could share information and make it available to anyone who speaks German. The path was long, but now we can make almost everything with our own hands. Even our own deodorant!”, shares the Cologne-based blogger. “I learned that if you mix cornstarch and lemon oil with baking soda, add water and lime oils, you can get a vegan mass that protects well against sweat and odor.” emphasizes Anke.
