Our purpose: make a more sustainable lifestyle easy in Luxemburg
While climate change and environmental issues are getting worse and worse everyday, it is absolutely necessary for each of us to make a change in our lifestyle and reduce our impact on the planet.
In Luxemburg, more and more initiatives are developed for this purpose, in all areas. Shops or restaurants, public or private initiatives, events... They do exist, and they can help us all reach a more environmental friendly way of life.
However, it is sometimes difficult to be correctly informed, and hard to know how to make a significant change. Our small efforts, are they enough? Do I make a difference? Should I stop living a normal life to save our environment? In my day to day life, what is the most hramful for the planet? I'm trying to do better, but does it work?
These are typical questions that our website aims at answering, by giving you tangible solutions and action levers which are adapted to your personnal lifestyle.
Evaluate your personnal impact on the environment and discover our solutions, specifically targeted for your lifestyle.
Who are we ?
We are citizens living in Luxemburg, we are fully independent and we care about the environment. The LëtzShift project is based on the willing to make sustainable living easier for all, by putting forward the solutions already existing in Luxemburg. The motivation behind our small team is above all to provide you with local solutions which are adapted to your needs and to your situation, without making you feel guilty and without making you an ecological fundamentalist.
This project was created from a spontaneous idea, motivated by a personnal need to find solutions to reduce our impact on the planet. For the moment, no money is made from this website, and it is developed aside from our day-to-day job.
How does this website work?
This website can be used in many different ways, and each user may navigate through it freely.
To help you target the actions and local solutions which best suit your personnal situation and lifestyle, we recommend that you perform a quick evaluation, which should not take more than 3 minutes of your time. Based on your answers, our algorithm will be able to relevantly adapt our results to your way of life, in the three following areas: carbon footprint, biodiversity and air quality.
It is also possible to discover all our local solutions at any time, or to manually find solutions which are close to you. Specific interactive sections may also help you understand the environmental impacts and reliabilities of several aspects of our lives: mobility, houses, food, energy and consumption of goods.
Protect the environment, is it possible with my lifestyle?
Yes! Obviously, it would be even better to sacrifice most of our modern comfort... But without going to extreme solutions, every step matters. A few specific and targeted efforts, a few relevant changes in your day-to-day life, will already allow you to make a difference at your own scale, without forcing you to reduce you quality of life.
The best way to be sure is to try!
