Looking for a more sustainable lifestyle, but don’t know where to start? The beginners guide tips sound easy; recycle more and use less plastic, just to name a few. But how do you put them into practice in a busy daily life? With the new year resolutions still in the back of our mind, we invite change makers to share green habits that can reduce our footprint.

  • Daniel Poolen, plastic connaisseur pur sang, looks into the numbers behind plastic waste.  How much plastic do we use, and why? He will also share some tips & tricks of things to definitely try at home.

  • Fides Lapidaire is a social designer who offers surprising perspectives on complex issues. For her newest project BROODJE POEP (Shit Sandwich in English) she looks there were most people wouldn’t… She turns our pee and poop, human waste, into compost and sells sandwiches from the truck, made from ingredients that grow on this compost. With the project she hopes to work towards a greater goal: the worldwide closure of our food cycle.
