    EIR020: Goodbye Easy Impact Radio

    01/09/2019 Duração: 06min

    Dear Easy Impact listeners, it has been a long time since you heard of me. The last episode was issued in October and ever since something happened that I did not want. I “podfaded” Easy Impact Radio by just not issuing any more episodes… I am really sorry for that. A lot of things happened in my life since the last episodes and my passion to continue with this podcast just faded. I still try to learn a lot about an active and sustainable lifestyle and everything I did instead of this podcast was connected to sustainability in a way. ... Read More

    April and May this year I travelled in Middle America and spent some time as well in Guatemala. I wanted to go surfing there but everybody told me that there is no surf. Nevertheless I searched online and found the village of el Pardon where there was supposed to be good surf. I enden up one week in this amazing village and had great surf and a really good time. The sustainable village development program La Choza Chula is hard to miss when you are in El Paredon and recently I had the chance to speak with Sonal Amin about ... Read More

    16/07/2018 Duração: 35min

    In my last job I decided to educate myself further and searched for opportunities to learn about sustainability management. I found the website of the university for sustainable development and their certificate sustainability management courses that I could take even though I was working a full job. Prof. Dr. Nölting is not only a teacher in that program. He developed the study course sustainability management himself together with Prof. Jens Pape and other great minds from university and different companies.

    EIR 017: Nathasha Athanasiadou leaves a huge impact with her fashion brand Generation Generous and her support of the Plastic Bank

    01/03/2018 Duração: 30min

    End of Januar this year I flew to Cape Town to participate in the Coworkation and Kitesurf program Coworkite. Natasha also took part in this program and as soon as I read her introduction in the slack channel, I knew that I want to interview her. When you meet her in person, you will feel her passion about her projects even more. When she explains Generation Generous to you, you see the motivation in Natashas eyes and get the feeling that she really found what she is burning for. Her company Generation Generous is a radically generous lifestyle brand with ... Read More

    EIR 016: Stella from 22stars shows how to build up a social business with jewellery from recycled paper

    07/01/2018 Duração: 36min

    On the global DNX conference in Lisbon in September 2017 I participated in a workshop from Stella about social entrepreneurship and the energy with that Stella presented her journey blew me away. She built up a business based on selling jewellery made from recycled paper. It was not even her idea to make this paper beads. She saw them being made by African woman. Stella just gave them the possibility to sell the products in the European and American markets. But she did not stop there: She opened a foundation to give the children of the mothers that do the ... Read More

    EIR 015: Melanie from tausendfremdeorte tells her story about cycling the world

    04/12/2017 Duração: 17min

    I met Melanie and her boyfriend Ricardo on a DNX Camp in Dahab Egypt. I was immediately impressed by their plan to travel the world by bicycle. They are not the first people to do that, but the way they approached this adventure impressed me: without too much preparation and enjoying the learning process while on the road. Melanie and Ricardo are both big travel fans and met each other on one of their former journeys in Australia. Ever since they travel together as a couple. They like to travel slow, get in contact with the locals, learn their traditions ... Read More

    EIR 014: How to reduce your use of plastic

    18/11/2017 Duração: 16min

    Plastic is everywhere around us. If you look around yourself right now you will see a lot of stuff made out of plastic. It is everywhere in our homes, workplaces, toys, gadgets. A life like the majority of us is living it would not be possible without plastic. Plastic is a material that made a lot of things and products possible to everyone of us. We should be grateful for that! At the same time plastic is a fast growing disaster for the environment. Since so many products are mad out of plastic, a lot of these products end as ... Read More

    EIR 013: Martijn Jegerings the founder of Open Wear shares insights on building a sustainable performance product with a transparent supply chain

    15/10/2017 Duração: 29min

    Facebook advertising is a powerful tool. An advertisement for the Open Wear Snow Jacket caught me. It contained a slogan that combined sustainability and performance and immediately cought my eye. I loved the concept and the running kickstarter campaign was very professional. Luckily the founder Martjin agreed on an interview and we talked about the way from the idea to the final product, kickstarter and the influence that starting a business has on your life. I was amazed that a company of two people can built such a brand and I wish there would be more products that prove that ... Read More

    EIR 012: Try car sharing! The sharing economy trend is part of the automobile industry

    30/09/2017 Duração: 17min

    One third of the emissions of the average human being are emitted for transportation. Transportation is a huge topic in the sustainability discussion. Electric vehicles, fuel consumption, public transportation, cycling and walking are just a few examples. In this episode I want to highlight the niche topic car sharing. Car share does not include car pooling (taking someone with you in your car) or ride sharing services like uber or taxis. It means to rent a car that other people can rent as well and drive it yourself. There are different models of car sharing. Dedicated parking spots for the ... Read More

    EIR 011: Felix and Nora from Brettgeflüster combine social and sustainable aspects in their crafting fashion project

    17/09/2017 Duração: 29min

    Sometimes you meet the coolest people on the rarest occasions. On a dragon boat company event I told Felix, who was working, that I liked the design of his shirt. He explained me that it is his own brand and he prints all clothes with his girlfriend with a sustainable approach. We shortly talked and met a few weeks later for dinner. The energy and passion that Felix and Nora have for their brand „Brettgeflüster“ (board whisper) is exceptional. They just came up with the idea on the way back from a surf trip, bought the paint from an old ... Read More

    EIR 010: Elisa from followmygreen shows the ease of leaving a positive impact

    02/09/2017 Duração: 35min

    After a few podcast episodes I started the Instagram account of Easy Impact Radio and pretty soon I found @followmygreen. I like the channel, because it had some really easy hint and tipps to live a more sustainable life, so it was pretty much exactly what I wanted to do. I did not find any podcast or website behind it, so I just wrote the followmygreen Instagramm. Elisa answered and after a few messages we agreed on a podcast interview. What happened in this interview was incredible. Elisa is french and moved to Vancouver in Canada. She lives the philosophy ... Read More

    EIR 009: Photographer Thilo Vogel about minimalism and living in a rooftop tent on your car

    19/08/2017 Duração: 32min

    I met Thilo the first time on the DNX conference in Berlin and while waiting in the line for lunch we started to chat about travelling and electric cars. While I told Thilo about my just launched podcast, he explained me that he lives in his car and actually sleeps in a rooftop tent. Thilo is a great guy. He is relaxed, humble and just fun to be around! We got along perfect and a few weeks after the DNX I asked him for an interview. I was fascinated how hands on Thilos approach for a minimalistic life was. We ... Read More

    Suns out, buns/guns out! It is summer!!! and normally that means sun, unless you live in Germany…. than it can mean as well storms and rain, but this is not the topic of this episode. For this episode we imagine that there is sun, a lot of sun. So much sun that you feel warm and energised, and also so much sun that your skin starts to burn. This is at latest the point where you should apply sun screen. With any other product there is a huge variety of possibilities to choose from. In this episode I will try ... Read More

    EIR 007: Belina Raffy from Sustainable Standup shows how to laugh about important topics

    21/07/2017 Duração: 34min

    When I announced that I want to start my own podcast about an active and sustainable lifestyle a travel buddy that I met in a Yoga retreat in North Thailand wrote me on Facebook, that I have to check out sustainable stand up. First I could not believe it…. Making fun about such an important topic? But exactly this is the thing: Belina combines stand up comedy with important topics that endanger our planet. The interview shows that it is way more than just the ability to combine comedy with sustainability. It is more about laughing about things that seem ... Read More

    08/07/2017 Duração: 14min

    In my first episode I said, that I want to try to make an holistic approach with this podcast. In this episode I talk about a system to organize your money. The canadian author and businessman T. Harv Eker developed a money jar system to manage the money your are spending. This really helps you to get an overview of your spendings and helps you to steer where you spent your money for. To sum it up the money jar system helps you handle your own income in a more sustainable way. It is very easy to apply. You basically ... Read More

    EIR 005: Fairshionista Sabine Egger implements sustainability in all parts of her life

    24/06/2017 Duração: 44min

    Swiping through my Instagramm feed I found Sabine on the pictures of the kite channel wake up stoked. It took me some time to realize that we know from my time as an Basketball player at Westfalia Kinderhaus many years ago. We wrote a few times and met again at the Digital Nomad Conference in Berlin end of May. When she explained about her project Fairshionista I had to take the opportunity to ask her for an interview. Sabine is a anesthetist in switzerland, but at the same time she loves to travel, to ski and to go kite surfing. ... Read More

    In the process of setting up this podcast, I also spoke to Claudi from Greenme Berlin and she really supported me and pushed me to continue to launch this podcast.

    EIR 002: How to surf the internet in a more sustainable way. From servers powered by renewables to the education potential of the internet.

    24/05/2017 Duração: 27min

    Not the first topic to think about but definitely one that impacts our daily life constantly: Greenpeace issued a new green clicks report last January and evaluated based on different criteria the impact of various global online Services from eCommerce to video streaming and social networks. The energy demand of the internet is growing at a fast pace and luckily some of the big companies show how it can be done or at least improved since the last study. Facebook, Apple, and Google who first made 100% renewable commitments four years ago have now been joined by nearly 20 internet ... Read More

    EIR 001: Rob Greenfields transformation from a party animal to an adventurer, activist, humanitarian, and dude making a difference

    23/05/2017 Duração: 25min

    I met Rob Greenfield personally in the Zero waste store Glücklich Unverpackt in Essen and after his motivating talk I had to ask him if I can interview him. Amazingly he said yes, as you can hear right now. Rob is one of the most positive and happy people I have ever met and at the same time he is very calm and reasonable. In university he was a big party animal but he transformed to a role model adventurer, activist and humanitarian fighting for a better planet. He actually shows what is all possible. Here are just some of ... Read More
