Maybe you’ve already noticed that Germans invest a lot of time and money in protecting the environment. That has now become an integral part of their everyday life, and indeed part of German culture. And that’s why it’s important to us at Deutschland-Begleiter.de to tell you about a few key aspects of this whole topic.
The resources we are talking about are mainly raw materials such as coal, gas, water, etc. On the one hand, these resources are finite; on the other hand, you can save a lot of money by using these resources as responsibly and sparingly as possible.
People who use resources sparingly are acting in the interest of their children and grandchildren, who have the right to live on a planet that’s still worth living on. This aspect ties in with Germany’s and Europe’s Christian roots: God has entrusted this planet to us humans, and we should act responsibly towards it.
Besides, the Bible says that we should share things with those who have less than we do. And you can only share things if you look after what you own carefully and responsibly. That’s why we recommend that you save resources wherever possible. If you do that, you will gain the respect of people here in Germany.
