But there is still a great number of people, who can’t raconcile with this fact, and the inhabitants of Wrocław are also in this group. A trend of being eco and living in harmony with nature is becoming more, and more visible everywhere around the globe. This trend is also great chance for all sort of brands to promote themselves.

Vozilla – environment-friendly electric cars for rent

Sharing is now a very popular trend. It also applies in ecology. This is known by Vozilla, an electric car rental company operating in Wrocław. Only in the last year Wrocław residents have rented Vozilla cars over 300,000 times, which significantly reduced the number of cars driving on city streets, and thus significantly contributed to the reduction of emissions and exhaust fumes.

Fitness World – Your ecological gym in Wroclaw

The Fitness World fitness center operating in Wrocław meets the expectations of its clients and shows that it is possible to care for the environment regardless of the type of activity. The brand is promoted with posters informing how choosing the right materials and cleaning agents positively affects ecology. Thanks to the use of paper produced by Econatural and Fiberpack, they managed to process over 115,000 beverage cartons, reduce CO2 emissions by over 3000 kg and save nearly 50 trees.

The green race is just accelerating

As you can see, brands are already actively involved in the trend of ecological life, and customers only encourage them to use their services. I think that with time more companies will appear with new ideas. After all, we are all well aware of how much ecology still needs to be done in Poland.

Craft workshops in Wroclaw

Clothing stores mostly offer clothes made with synthetic fabrics. Furthermore, new collections appear every few weeks. In contrast to the offer of shopping centers, supporters of an ecological lifestyle try to tailor old clothes. Buying fewer good quality items made of natural fabrics is also more and more evident. In this case, tailoring workshops are another noteworthy suggestion. At the tailoring workshop at the Szyciokawiarnia in Wroclaw you can sew a pencil skirt or a shopper bag according to your own design. In addition, in the Szyciokawiarnia you can also spend time not only at the workshops, but whenever you want-  with delicious coffee, homemade cake and sewing machine, in the company of other tailoring enthusiasts.

Vozilla Electric Cars Rental in Wrocław

Background of cars usage

In western Europe the number of cars has increased by 130% in the last 40 years. 100% increase took place in the 20 years between 1980 and 2000. Now the rate of increase is lower, sign that saturation is nearing, but trips are becoming longer and more frequent.

In developing economies, the rate of increase of the number of cars is often close to 10% per annum, which means a doubling every 7–8 years. It seems that we are witnessing a collective infatuation for cars that borders with addiction. Indeed, they are the most convenient (for the user) means of transportation ever devised, but the social cost associated is huge.

Issue

Every car need to be parked at either side of their trip. European cities are struggling to fulfill this need – and here is a field for companies to improve this situation.

Solution

So here we have initiatives like Vozilla in Wrocław which is offering short term (by minutes) rental of electric cars (over 200 cars in Wroclaw) which can be parked in special areas in city centre (green envelope mark). The charge is 1PLN per minute of the rental service.

The first thing the customer has to do is download a special app and register in the service. The app is necessary for you to find the closest vehicle and book it with your smartphone. Then you may access the car where the previous user or the operator have left it. The rental service is provided across the entire administrative area of Wrocław. Users are allowed to leave Wrocław. However, to return the car you are also obliged to return to the city. You can leave your car at any generally accessible car park.

Additionally, Vozilla’s cars are similar to cabs in that they are authorized to access bus lanes and zones with restricted access for combustion engine vehicles. Vozilla cars are authorised to use the following bus lanes: ul Reymonta/Pomorska, Podwale, Trzebnicka, Piłsudskiego, pl Teatralny, św Jadwigi, Traugutta, Jedności Narodowej, Szewska, Robotnicza.

Soupculture – the unusual option for takeaway soup in Wroclaw

Where is the best takeaway soup in Wroclaw and why it is worth trying? A few months ago (October, 2017) a new tiny café appeared in the center of Wroclaw.  It is located at Swidnicka 43, near Arkady Capitol Theatre, just next to public transport stop.  The place is serving takeaway soup in Wroclaw as only few people could stand there at once.

Actually, the café is so called mono meal one. The main item in the menu is soup. Moreover, it is vegetable cream-soup. No meat, no fancy ingredients, no chemical substitutes or nutrients. The range of the soups is truly vegetarian: cheese, onion, spinach, Mexican, beet-root, potato, tomato, lentil, mushroom, broccoli, celery, etc. Every day you could choose one takeaway soup out of four available.

Unless it is nothing special in offering the vegetable takeaway soup, the main feature of the place is an edible cup where soup is served. The cups are made on a daily basis. The know-how is in unique equipment for baking these cups. The machine stands inside the place and you could even observe the whole process on your own. The dough receipt is simple, without any yeast and eggs, but there were quite a number of experiments behind the solution.  The cups vary by color: yellow, pink, green, brown – depends on natural component added inside, like turmeric, beet-root, spinach, wholegrain flour and others.
