Vanessa is a freelance author and journalist. Being a mother changed her worldview completely. Social commitment and sustainability now play a big role in her life. She supports new citizens to integrate in society and loves travelling with her family. To compensate her rather bad CO2 footprint, she takes sustainable measures in her everyday life.



When I wake up...

I think of a song to wake up my little boy.


One simple thing I do to be sustainable

To-go cups can be pretty much avoided completely these days. You can do the same with all the packaging when you get take-away food. Just ask to put the food into keep-fresh container from home. It makes a big difference with people in offices ordering lunch every day.


My favorite quote to live by
