Bye Bye Plastik

This is the motto of Bye Bye Plastik gUG (haftungsbeschränkt), based on Sylt. Founded in 2019 by Carin Winkler and Heike Werner. They encourage companies as well as restaurants, associations, authorities and private individuals to rethink – and to switch away from plastic to sustainable alternatives. As a private person you can become a “Believer” and as a company you can be awarded the “Changemaker cerification”.
