Sustainable lifestyle

Sustainable living should be easy – and ideally affordable! That’s what our green online store is for.

As a young and creative team, we can’t keep our feet still. So it’s no wonder that we are constantly coming up with new ideas to make environmental protection socially acceptable in the face of global challenges. So since 2019, more and more ideas and initiatives have been accumulating around Project Wings. The different companies are implemented by one team: the Project Wings team.

All or nothing?

Sustainable consumption

We are now almost 8 billion people on our planet. By comparison, in 1950 the figure was 2.5 billion. According to estimates and forecasts by the United Nations (UN), there will be 9.7 billion earthlings by 2050 and 10.7 billion by 2100.

The world’s population is growing continuously, but our planet’s resources are limited. As a result, more people have to share these finite resources, which are not evenly distributed and are mainly produced in poorer countries that do not have the means to consume them.

The high-consumption Western world in particular uses far more resources than are actually available to it. The consequences of overconsumption can be seen across a wide spectrum: from extinct ecosystems to the complete loss of biodiversity and species diversity.
It is therefore all the more important to consume sustainably.

But what exactly is sustainable consumption?

Sustainability as a single term is defined as follows:

“Principle according to which no more may be consumed than can be regrown, regenerated and made available again in the future.”

Consumption can be described as sustainable if it “meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs and choose their own lifestyles”. Sustainable consumption is therefore part of a sustainable way of life and behavior in which environmental aspects and social impacts are taken into account when purchasing and using products and services, as well as the subsequent correct disposal.

As a result, sustainable products conserve resources as much as possible over their entire service life.

Sustainable consumption therefore begins with people’s individual lifestyles and, in this sense, means above all: conscious consumption, i.e. taking a closer look and considering one’s own “overall balance”.

It is important for consumers to consider the entire value chain, which means that when they buy a sustainable product, they also have a voice in improving the entire value chain.

For example, it helps to ask yourself the following questions: “Do I really need this or am I just being told that I need it?”, “Where and under what conditions was the product produced?”.

It is therefore important to use the available resources more responsibly and to consume more consciously.

We need to get to the root of the issue and start with education: Consumers must therefore be better informed so that they can make sustainable purchasing decisions. Because often it is simply a lack of information.

SDGs?

SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) number 12 of the 2030 Agenda also addresses precisely this issue: Sustainable consumption and production
Natural resources should be used sustainably and efficiently.
Waste should be avoided or recycled and hazardous waste disposed of safely.
The aim is to reduce food waste.
Companies should be encouraged to minimize their social and environmental risks.
Consumers should be better informed about sustainable consumption.
The authorities should give preference to sustainable products in procurement.
The handling of chemicals should become more environmentally friendly.

Our passion:

Environmental protection

The online store Wings Life was created directly from Project Wings. We tie in directly with the concept of holistic environmental protection. We have found that alternative products are often far too expensive for consumers. That’s why we have made it our mission to make your everyday life more beautiful with sustainable products at fair prices.

But that’s not all! We work hand in hand with Project Wings. With every purchase in our sustainable online store, you contribute directly to the implementation of new projects. Together, we are building more recycling villages and giving new meaning to the plastic we already have, while no longer producing new plastic. Simply browse through our range and discover numerous ecological alternatives!
