I get all excited when there is a new restaurant to try and this week Silex , which is located right next to Bahnhof Wiedikon, opens its doors for the very first time. The cuisine is modern European and, as they put it,
2. A Trip Up The Sihl
I love the Sihl valley. In spite of its close proximity to the city it still feels rugged and remote. Let’s face it, all there is is a river and a railway line. But nothing makes a good walk better than knowing there is cold drink and a
3. Back To The Polls...Again.

1. A different perspective on breakfast
This is the shopping list that my flatmate Luki wrote on a post-it yesterday, which looks much the same as the lists of many other millenials. It took him three minutes to walk to the nearest shop, where he filled his basket,

2. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky
3. Ooki: All the way from Tokyo
Whenever a new Japanese restaurant opens somewhere, you can be sure that I’m not far behind. This new locale is called Ooki and serves gyoza, ramen, tempura, udon, Japanese curries and sake. The interior is very authentic, the

We are facing a global waste disaster - in fact, we are already in the middle of it. Oceans full of garbage, children playing on garbage dumps in developing countries: There is no improvement in sight. Every year, out of approximately 2 billion tons of municipal waste, only about 50% is recycled. The other 50% ends up...wait a minute....where do they actually go? That's the point: no one knows for sure. It's a huge BLACKBOX.
One of the main problems here is the global lack of transparency of waste streams and the lack of separate collection of materials.
If it were possible to recover the original materials from the waste, problems such as environmental pollution or supply shortages could be solved at the same time and the climate could be protected. And that's exactly where we help with our app and create more transparency by educating and guiding citizens on proper waste disposal.
Especially in developing countries, waste is a big problem. A suitable infrastructure for waste management does not exist or is still in its early stages. Education of the population does not take place and waste recycling as we know it does not exist.
Our consumption is increasing daily, we are surrounded by inefficient processes in cities and low recycling rates. A prospect that does not reflect our vision of a balanced ecosystem.
"Surely this cannot be our future and the future of the next generations. We need a system that includes everyone and makes the circular economy transparent."
With these words, we started looking for solutions and thinking about how each citizen can become a part of the solution and together we can make waste management efficient and environmentally friendly.
That was the starting point for the mission "the fortunate planet". With a team of creative thinkers, communication experts and developers, we developed "TFP - the fortunate planet" - an app that enables us all to make a daily contribution to a sustainable future.
