Hi! I am Makii.

Music has been a constant companion throughout my entire life. After ditching the piano lessons at 14, I came to terms with the fact, that I might be better at consuming music than producing it. So going to see live shows and spending summers at music festivals remain my biggest source of joy and happiness, along with my travels. I live in a constant state of Fernweh and dream up new backpacking-adventures on a regular basis. So after finishing school at 18, I did the cliché thing: went on a round-the-world trip, lived in an old van, woke up at dawn to catch some waves... the whole program. 
I decided to move to Berlin in 2011 to start studying geography, hoping to gain a better understanding of the planet that I love to explore. While still studying, I traveled as much as possible and spent a good part of my adult life living out of a backpack. It was on these travels, armed with the knowledge taken from my studies, that the human impact on pollution and environmental destruction all over our planet became more and more clear to me – as was the fact, that I am part of the problem. 
So, what can one do while living in a ‘first-world’ city, wanting to enjoy everything it has to offer, with no plans of stopping traveling any time soon, but still wanting to be more environmentally conscious at the same time? 

I strongly believe that eco-friendly doesn’t mean you have to compromise what you enjoy in life. We have countless opportunities to make choices that will impact our environment in a positive and more sustainable way. I am here to explore, learn and share them with you.
Let’s be part of the solution – not the problem.
