#RamadanPlastikfasten – How NourEnergy Inspired German Muslims to Reduce the Use of Plastic

#RamadanPlastikfasten

Dear Friends of the Environment,

#RamadanPlastikfasten is the hashtag many Muslim organisations in Germany have been using this Ramadan, in their social media postings about different events that they organised. The hashtag and the campaign behind it was started by NourEnergy at the beginning of Ramadan this year. The campaign called on Muslims to reduce the consumption of plastic as much as possible during the month of Ramadan in the sense of fasting from plastic. The idea was taken up by many students organisations and community groups in different parts of Germany and also outside Germany.

Plastic pollution is a hot topic of discussion these days. A huge amount of plastic that we use unfortunately ends up in our water bodies and has devastating consequences on the marine ecology. Plastics can potentially even end up in the human food chain and pose a serious health hazard for human beings. In this context, when we look at regular Iftar gatherings that are organised during the month of Ramadan, a lot of plastic is unfortunately used by Muslims, hence unwittingly contributing to the ecological degradation. The aim behind the RamadanPlastikfasten campaign is to inspire people to be responsible towards the ecology and environment: what better time to instill something good in people than during the month of Ramadan. After all Ramadan is the month in which it is expected of Muslims to change into better human beings. And an important part of being a better human being, in our times, is to be aware of the ecological costs of our individual actions. This is something which is inherent in our religious teachings but is missing in our actions. In this regard, NourEnergy published a concise Green Iftar guide, with guidelines to help people to organise Iftar in a ecologically conscious way. The Green Iftar Guide even made it to the Instagram feed of Imam Suhaib Webb, whose social media posts and podcasts are known to call people towards sustainable lifestyle and ecological consciousness.

Voluntary engagement

Voluntary engagement

The NourEnergy team is a voluntary team actively working for environment protection, inspired from Islam. At the moment, the team is comprised of Muslim academics, professionals, and students. Our current aim to sensitize, advise, and support community social organizations like mosques, churches, schools, and old age homes etc towards conservation of natural resources and environment protection.

We achieved our first breakthrough in 2012 by installing our first photovoltaic system. This was done in a mosque in Germany. We are constantly looking forward to strengthen our team.

    Vereint im Islam
    Vereint im Islam an event in which Muslims irrespective of their nationality, school of thought, or social status come together for a common good. This year the event was held on 4th and 5th April in Hamburg. In this two day event, more than 20 speakers presented different lectures, presentations, and workshops. More than 2000 guests took part in the event. We, as NourEnergy, had our own stall at this event where we presented our ideas and projects to the guests and hence did our bit to spread awareness about the importance of being environment-friendly in Islam.

Environment protection with photovoltaic systems

With the installation of a photovoltaic system you are already part of the environment protection initiative. Photovoltaic systems are environment and climate friendly; they help us preserve our natural resources as well as good health. As a consulting partner with in-depth experience, we are looking forward to work with non-profit organizations in the field of photovoltaic systems, energy and resource management.
