We join the “Given break”!
This is a regional project, which allows you to do the following in all restaurants, cafes, etc., which are provided with the above sticker: When paying your own bill, a “given break” can be paid, this can be a coffee, a soup or something else!
Make a person, who just can not afford it, smile and pay for a meal or a drink in advance on your next visit!

We support foodsharing!
All according to the motto: share food instead of throwing it away!

foodsharing.de is a food-giving platform with which private individuals, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurateurs, etc. can offer and pick up food for free. Also in Aachen, there are many active FoodsaverInnen who diligently preserve food from the garbage can. The salvaged food will be brought to public “fairteiler”. We also have one in the Pfannenzauber: In front of the restaurant is a fair wheel (not to be overlooked: red cargo bike with a circus tent roof) and in the shop itself there is a small foodsharing corner with a fridge!
Serve you gladly, everyone is invited. If you have questions about foodsharing or even want to become active yourself, we are very glad to be your contact person.

Refill Germany
Avoid plastic waste | Drink tap water | Fill your water bottle

Finally Refill arrived in Aachen! All shops and other stations equipped with the Refill sticker will now fill free tap water in your bottles. The idea originally came from the English city Bristol and was first introduced to Hamburg by Stephanie Wiermann, who has been living plastic-free for years. Meanwhile, it has become a Germany-wide movement.

Have you been out for hours and are thirsty now? Then let us fill up your water bottle! A general tip is to always carry a bottle with you anyway 😉

Who wants to participate in the project and spread the idea:
aachen@refill-deutschland.de

Gladly you can pick up stickers from us.

An overview of all refill stations in Germany can be found at:

We use Ökobons!
Did you know that conventional receipts are coated with bisphenols and actually belong in the residual waste?

Our receipts are made without chemical color developers and are approved for direct contact with food. Ökobon is also UV-resistant, permanently archivable and made of FSC paper from responsible forestry.

And besides, the Ökobons are unmistakable with their blue-gray color 🙂

Selo Coffee Fruit
We offer an alternative to coffee!

Few people are aware that coffee beans are the seeds of a – so far totally underrated – cherry.
Millions of tons of coffee are produced each year, with one third of the fruit and peel crops each. What hardly anyone knows: in the sun-dried bowls of the coffee cherry, also called Cascara, there is the whole variety of flavors and the full caffeine content of the coffee bean.

On the basis of the coffee cherry, selosoda has developed a real alternative to overseas lemonades and flavored energy drinks, which represents a significant financial benefit for the coffee farmers in the country of origin. Thus, a financial increase in value of the coffee plant by 50% is noticeable.
Selo Coffee Fruit is as caffeinated as a double espresso.

Hambi stays!
The Hambach Forest is one of the most natural forests in Central Europe, which has existed continuously for 12000 years. Of the former 5500 hectares of forest, 90% have already been destroyed. The Hambacher Forst had and should continue to give way to the open pit Hambach. Trees with millennia of history are cut down for lignite mining, the living space is torn from protected species, villages are resettled. Coal opponents decided to occupy the Hambach Forest five years ago and now fight for its preservation.

There are regular forest walks offered. Further information: Termine
