I'm from the Netherlands, 20 years old and started my second year of university too. I am writing this because I learn people Dutch as a job. If you still want to learn a little Dutch, or just want to chat in Dutch sometimes, you can connect me if you want. I'm not asking for anything, I just like to help :-) My e-mail is jelenalos@hotmail.com if you are interested. Thanks for all the motivation I got from your videos!

    But veganism isn't a sustainable alternative 😂 (maybe to a privileged westerner with money and who has the convenience of a supermarket) nor is it necessarily healthy since it lacks vital nutrients

    • Ileana Renoir

      4 dagen geleden

      @filmsbynix before moving to Germany and just a big city in general, I don't know most of the meat substitute or vegetables based dishes, so yeah, it's really different from one place to an other! My family lives in the city, but foxes live in forests and since the appartements are a bit outside of the city center, there are some forest patches here and there where foxes and rabbits live and they live to go through the Garten and eat the vegetables or try to kill the chickens 😅 Worms that kill trees... We'll that's a new one to me! With a very rainy/wet weather, a dead tree can always give you mushrooms, but I don't know how much use it is in your countries weather! I just think its really important to remember that sustainability is different in every country, depending on what you actually have at your disposal. The very western way of no meat, no pesticides, no pesticides sounds very good, but you can't expect to get that everywhere. Guess it's a good case of considering your environment when trying to live the best way possible .

      4 dagen geleden

      @Ileana Renoir thank you for engaging with me, I agree 100% with you. Sorry there was a misunderstanding before. All the vegan options I see foreign influencers post I wouldn't know even existed if it wasn't for social media. And I've never seen a fox before in my country, apparently they only live in the open grasslands, so we don't have that issue as I live in the suburbs 🙈. We have our own vegetable garden so we only buy the ones we're not able to grow as we've already maximized our space if there's a particular dish we want to cook :) But we have a worm problem (not the good earth worms), lots of them ate away at our 2 fig trees so we're not able to make our own jam anymore.

    • Ileana Renoir

      @filmsbynix that does sound very frustrating, I understand better why you reacted like that.. I guess it is a very western way thinking, but in the end, what counts is sustainability and I don't believe it necessarily has to be veganism or any specific diet. Eating avocado toast and berries every day of the year when you live in a northern country, where none of these can grow naturally is actually anything but sustainable. So if the family chickens are available, that's a lot more sustainable then getting an overpriced salad from the other side of the world (btw, my family has some chicken too, I think that's just a universaly smart thing to have. Except when foxes get in, foxes are very annoying)

    • filmsbynix


      4 dagen geleden

      @Ileana Renoir Sorry for my tone, its just when she spoke about it she spoke as if it is universal for everyone and that it's the only sustainable way for the future and that's what a lot of influencers from Europe and America preach. When I was in high school I wanted to be vegetarian after doing it for a month, my mother told me she cannot afford to buy vegetarian meals, it's expensive and wouldn't even feed our 4 member family, I will have to get my own food and at that time I had no money, you can only legally get a job at 18 here. I can only name one supermarket that has a small vegan range and that's like 3 types of salad. I know a vegan restaurant opened last year in town but that's one restaurant in the entire city, town is also only for the rich and business people who work there, so really if you don't work or live in the city you probably wouldn't drive all that way. But also many tribes know how to live off the land in rural areas - own cattle, own crops and insects which is way more sustainable. And you don't have to live in a rural area to have your own little chicken farm for eggs in your backyard (quite popular).

      @filmsbynix oh well.. Guess" in my country it's not an issue " means I'm living in a bubble.. I never said its easy or doable everywhere, just look how happy Jade is with the possibilities in Berlin? It's obvious she didn't always have so much, even if she's from a well-off country. You can just say that it's not possible for you, because wayyy to expensive in your country. That's interesting, please share more if you want, but don't attack me for sharing my experience 🤷🏻‍♀️ Edit : and I do agree, it's always the demand /availability game : veganism beeing popular means that you actually get a lot more products, so in the end, also more affordable ones

If it's possible make sure to go in to watch a concert, enjoy the amazing acoustics and incredible architecture! Or if not, at least Google the inside, it's so much more impressive than the outside. (I might be slightly biased since I went there as an architecture student doing research on acoustics :))

    When you talked about sustainable products I thought you were gonna say how some products aren’t really sustainable and they are just green-washing. I didn’t know that people value sustainable products as less valuable cause normally sustainable products are more expensive and thus are consumed by ppl who are wealthier. Your research is an interesting viewpoint!
