Yes, in general, Germans are very committed to the issue of sustainability.
Did you know that in 2016 Germany became the first country in the world to plan the end of gasoline-powered cars?
That is, exactly one of the countries that invented the combustion engine.
Did you know that in 2017 the local administration of the city of Hamburg in Germany ordered a ban on the use of espresso capsules inside public buildings in the city? This was at the height of the success of espresso machines.
At that time, according to the local environmental office, 9.8 billion of these capsules were already being sold worldwide each year, but only 5% of these are recycled. If all the capsules consumed were lined up in a row, it would be possible to drive 12 times around the planet with them.
Yes, these are just a few examples of how the country shows willingness in the search for a more sustainable world.
