The four Munich-based movers and shakers want to inspire people to shape their lives more consciously. For themselves and for our planet. The website is still under construction. On Instagram, you can already see what moves the founders: The earth and how we treat it. To this end, the founders communicate facts, ask questions to make their readers think and let different protagonists from the sustainable scene speak in various creative formats.

Sinah Diepold, founder of Kale & Cake, talks about her life as a “conscious lifestyle warrior” and “happiness ambassador”. Benedikt Klarmann, founder of the Munich-based organic beauty brand Junglück, reveals why he is suddenly interested in aloe vera & co. and why it is so important to break up the “encrusted” structures of the cosmetics industry.
“I think that if you treat yourself to luxury, then you should at least consume it sustainably.” Benedikt Klarmann, Jungglück
Markus Mitterer is also founder (and member of the board). With Rehab Republik he wants to provide food for thought, as he believes that the prevailing lifestyle is not sustainable in the long term. He is sure that you can’t achieve much with knowledge transfer alone. A change in behavior has a lot to do with emotions, fun and social norms. “It’s not so easy to be vegan or plastic-free. We just try it out ourselves – and report on it.”
