The best books on sustainability

Living sustainably – that’s what more and more consumers want. The question quickly arises as to how sustainability can be implemented in everyday life? Does a sustainable lifestyle necessarily involve sacrifice, or can smaller changes possibly even achieve more?

Approaching the theory and practice of sustainability is not that difficult. Fortunately, there are a number of good books that take up various aspects, present them in an understandable way and give suggestions for implementation. Here we present some book tips for relaxing weekends on the couch. We recommend picking up an eBook – because at NIKIN we are paper-free.

Stephanie Hess: ECOlogical, ChangeMaker

The author illuminates in an informative and exciting way how our consumption affects the environment. Because many things that have long been taken for granted in everyday life have to travel a long (production) way. This is particularly true for food, but other consumer goods are also sometimes not very sustainable. How high are the CO2 emissions? Stephanie Hess explains the water consumption for the production of popular products and what alternatives consumers have in an exciting and fact-based manner.

Christoph Schulz: Living sustainably for beginners, Orell Füssli

This guide by Christoph Schulz helps with the first steps on the way to a more sustainable life. The book answers practical questions about the consequences of lifestyle and leisure activities and explains the benefits of, for example, avoiding or restricting meat consumption and air travel. In doing so, the author makes his readers understand that everyone can actually make a contribution to sustainability. More than 100 practical tips cover topics such as fashion, energy and investments and make it easier to implement good resolutions.

Wolfgang Mulke: Investing money sustainably, Orell Füssli

Can investing be sustainable at all, and does changing customer behavior have an effect on the financial industry? And whether – as the author Wolfgang Mulke explains in this book. By choosing sustainable investments, investors can put an end to the arms industry and corruption, as well as the industrial exploitation of nature, child labor or unhealthy food! Readers will learn how and where to find individual investment products and sustainable financial service providers in the book “Investing Sustainably”.

The important topic of returns and the verifiability of sustainability is also addressed here, always in an understandable form. Private investors can use this book to develop their own investment strategies and find suitable investment products. Banks, funds and ETFs are presented, and the author uses sample portfolios to provide suggestions for different risk preferences - all of them sustainable.

Sabine Haag: Shopping unpackaged – storing creatively, Orell Füssli

Shopping unpackaged is a trend, and in Switzerland there are more and more stores where consumers can buy food and other things without packaging. Sabine Haag explains how best to do this. The goods purchased in this way also have to be transported and stored. Readers of this book will learn how to store loose food reliably, practically and even decoratively and will also receive lots of suggestions from the author about how to do it themselves.
