Helping others to see and appreciate the opportunities and options of a sustainable way of living: Anne and Gary Moore (Wagtail Design; FI)

“Personally we like crisis, it builds and brings out strengths that most don’t even know they have. There is a very appropriate saying that I have used as long as I can remember: “If you care enough, you will find a way, if not, you will find an excuse.” You, and you alone are responsible for you; find your way out of crisis.”

Shop ´til you drop but keep it cruelty free!: Helen Tintse (Veganshop; EE)

“I admire and respect everyone who has found possibilities to support veganism, environmental protection and equality. There are many different people, some in the forefront, some not.

Similarly to every person who cares and who makes reasoned choices.”

Encouraging us all to do the best we possibly can: Aleks (Natural Bröder; EE)

“Sort your trash, take your own bag to a grocery store, take your own cup to a coffee shop, don’t throw trash around and reuse things as much as you can. Those would be the basics. Also, many new sustainable brands are coming out, but with them many greenwashing brands are coming along too. You should research the brand to know if it really is what it claims to be. And the reason would be to keep the business going while not being too harmful to our planet. Not everything we as species do is bad, we just need to manage our processes better.”
