Tierfreunde

Manche Hundefreunde benützen die Entsorgungssäckchen doch... Davon landen nur sehr viele gefüllt doch in der nächsten Wiese oder im Kanal. Oder wie hier: Spaßvögel reißen die gesamten Säckle aus der Station und lassen sie vom Winde verwehen.

Papierbecher

Jeden Tag werden in der Mensa Papierbecher für das gratis Wasser verwendet. Meist sogar aufwendig bedruckt. Und das, obwohl eigentlich genügen Gläser vorhanden wären.

Mülltrennen

Der Müll wird leider viel zu wenig getrennt.

Richtig trennen?

Soll man Wurstverpackungen vorher waschen oder nicht?

Der österreichische Dokumentarfilm „Unser täglich Brot“ (2005) handelt von der Massenproduktion von Lebensmitteln. Der Regisseur ,Produzent und Kameramann Nikolaus Geyrhalter zeigt dabei mit klaren und sachlichen Aufnahmen die unverblümte Wahrheit über die Situation in Europa.

Das Besondere an diesem Film ist, dass auf der Tonebene nur mit Geräuschen gearbeitet wird. Es werden keine Interviews durchgeführt oder gesprochene Hintergrundinformationen preisgegeben. Die Bilder des Films sprechen aber auch ohne Ton für sich und somit sind Zusatzinformationen gar nicht notwendig.

Food, inc. (2008) Robbert Kenner

Food inc. is a documentary of Robert Kenner. This documentary is about our food, and what we know about it.

Since 1950’s there was a big change in the food business. The brothers McDonald came up with a brilliant idea, fast food. They trained each employee to fulfil just one task, over and over again. In this way, they could pay them a low wage. The kitchen became basically a factory. The food was inexpensive and tasted good, that’s what made McDonald’s a great success. McDonalds became the largest purchaser of ground beef in the United States. They wanted their hamburgers to tastes, everywhere, exactly the same. They changed how ground beef is produced.
