Walking down the streets of Vienna, I inhale the intoxicating smell of lilacs and take notice of the pink confetti-like flower petals coating the sidewalks. Spring has arrived once again.
Spring is not just blossoms bursting forth; it is also a time when we celebrate our planet. So in honor of all the Earth Day celebrations, we wanted to feature some of our Impact Hub members that are creating some pretty powerful green impact.
Meet Impact Hub member Angie Rattay:
Angie is the founder of NEONGREEN Network, an online platform changing the world through connecting people, networks and information. Angie also founded EARTHtalks an annual conference focused on addressing environmental issues.
So Angie, what are you working on?
What needs to go in your green smoothie?
The NEONGREEN Smoothie needs a pinch of motivation, a spoon full of activism, a big portion of voluntary work and good vibes on top.
Up next is Theresa Steininger:
Theresa is the chief director at Wohnwagon, a company producing ecologically and sustainably tiny houses, as well an incredible resource for those wanting to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
So Theresa, what is Wohnwagon currently working on?
And what would be in your ideal green smoothie?
Finally we checked in with Bettina Steinbrugger:
Bettina is a co-founder of erdbeerwoche, a company tackling the issue of sustainability within feminine hygiene products and taking this issue mainstream.
Bettina what are you and erdbeerwoche currently working on?
Many things in parallel! erdbeerwoche is currently expanding to the DACH region, that is why we just finished a film project with WDR. We currently participate at several trade shows in Germany and will enter the Swiss market with our onlineshop soon!
What needs to be in a your ideal green smoothie?
I actually prefer red smoothies, as in bloody red, but if it needs to be a green one: Kiwi, banana, some herbs and a lot of passion.
I am certainly inspired by all the green smoothie ideas as well as the incredible impact created by our Hub members! What do you put in your green smoothie? How are you celebrating Spring and creating green impact? Let us know on Facebook and Instagram!
