ZukunftHandel: Eine Initiative von Google & dem Handelsverband Deutschland

(Werbung)
Berlin hat richtig viele tolle Einzelhändler:innen zu bieten, von super neuen Läden bis hin zu traditionsreichen Institutionen. Viele von ihnen sind leider nicht so gut online aufgestellt, wie sie es sein könnten – und damit gehen ihnen jede Menge Möglichkeiten flöten. Dabei ist es gar nicht so schwer! Deswegen freue ich mich, die Initiative ZukunftHandel von Google und dem deutschen Handelsverband zu unterstützen und zwei Läden dabei begleitet zu haben, wie sie ihren Onlineauftritt mit Hilfe der Anleitungen und Tools verbessern konnten. Die Initiative wurde ins Leben gerufen, um den lokalen Handel zu unterstützen und mit Tools, wie einem Google My Business Account oder kostenlosen Onlinetrainings, den Läden zu mehr Sichtbarkeit zu verhelfen, damit sie neben ihrem stationären Geschäft auch digital präsenter sind.

Seriously: The Ten Best Shops for Holiday Gifts in Berlin

Somehow, the 2020 holiday season is of even more importance than any other year. It might be, because it’s literally the only cheerful thing going on in our lives. I for one have definitely enjoyed thinking about what to gift, may it be small baked goods for my neighbours or more conceptual packages for my loved ones. So why not share my trusted sources in the city?

Guide: Fair Fashion in Berlin

– Supported by the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development –

Fair Fashion is something we like to think doesn’t have to be explained anymore. We all know that the main high and fast fashion brands’ production systems do tremendous, often irretrievable harm to the environment, and are based on the abuse and exploitation of workers in the producing countries, don’t we? However, was that on your mind when you paid a very low price for fast fashion items on your last shopping spree? Probably – maybe even understandably – not. Raising awareness for the plights of the majority of seamstresses working in unbearable conditions to create the trendy garments we all like to show-off on the streets is what a new campaign of the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development is all about: the story of Vero & Selvie puts one of the workers in the spotlight, and her portrait on the t-shirt I’m wearing on the above photo.
