Solidrinks was started to a) solve immediate social problems and to b) abstain from the distribution of profit among the founders or partners (it is ‘non-profit-making’). Instead, all profit goes to a third party – the projects we support. Nevertheless, there will first be a profit once we’ve managed to sell enough bottles to cover all our expanses and adequately remunerate all staff.
The association takes part in different events like festivals and markets and explains how social and political consumption via solidrinking leads to political engagement and a solidary.
SOLIDRINKS was made possible by the support and participation of many fantastic people from Somalia to Italy, from South to North Germany and all the way to Afghanistan! Danke, Thanks, Grazie, تشکر (Tashakor), Mahadsanid, ευχαριστώ (Efcharistó), Gracias, Tak, شكرا (Shukran). The core team comprises Roberta Di Martino, Patrick Kintzi, Frauke Wiegand, Homayoon Jafari, Verena Tonelli, Mohamed Diallo and Rebecca Ehret.
