    Waste to go or what disposable cups really mean to us

    Wallet, keys, mobile phone – and good to go. Not so good to go is almost every morning traveller’s thirst for some freshly roasted coffee beans and the thereof deriving tons of waste our cities need to cope with every day. 190,000 disposable cups are being thrown away every day in Munich. That means 43,000 felled trees, 1,5 billion litres of water, 111,000 tons of CO2 which ultimately cumulate in 40,000 tons of waste. Just. For. Drinking. Coffee. But not quite. Each and every one of us knows that it would be cheaper and – in most cases – even more delicious to just pour some coffee at home and…

    Cyclists and the Seasons

    Nothing quite shows seasons as an early morning road populated with urban cyclists on their way to work. Horses and dogs sense earthquakes earlier than humans do – same goes for cyclists and changing seasons. While the average U-Bahnee, Tramee and Trainee (no pun intended) still feels cuddled by yesterday’s summer heat, the cyclists flash their first delicate weapon in form of a silk scarf or a light hat to oppose to less gentle early-morning breezes brought to us by autumn itself. The more and more our streets are filled with these more and more masquerading fellow humans, the more it dawns to public transportation users that times are indeed…

    Mindfulness in Urban Life

    Finally. The endless summer is coming to an end, the warm sunlight will give room to the hard blue skies in only a few weeks and people start to dress more appropriate again. True, one might argue color and cut of clothes sometimes, but the main difference is that winter fashion has significantly smaller impact on others than in summer. Why is that? I believe it’s simply convenience. Unkempt feet in open sandals, skirts and pants offering views on body parts the owner can’t be too proud of and an unhealthy indifference against the normal physical perspirations – why was it again that God invented deodorant? Now, combine this picture…

    New Cooperation with Hong Kong University

    moov’inStyle is happy and proud to announce a framework agreement with the Institute of Transport Studies at Hong Kong University  >>. The city was not chosen by coincidence: Hong Kong is one of the best cities for sustainable urban mobility >>. In their latest Sustainable Cities Mobility Index (SCMI), consultants Arcadis have ranked 100 cities for sustainable mobility from a social, environmental and economic perspective. European cities occupy 7 of the Top 10 spots – but Hong Kong is the overall winner. Whether it’s London’s Tube, LA’s freeways or Amsterdam’s bicybles, cities are defined in part by their distinct urban transport systems. But not all cities are in the same place in…

    We all want to be mobile

    Freedom as the basis of mobility People want to be mobile and move – how, when and where they want. This basic human need is not new and is basedon an even stronger motivation: freedom. Mobility is less a goal in itself, the freedom of the individual is the desirable state. Freedom to move to where and when you want. Freedom to choose your workplace and place of residence virtually independently. These and more individual freedoms were and are (still) made possible by mobility solutions. In the process, this desired freedom was based above all on the availability of mobility, which led first to the ownership of horses and then…
