Instead of buying new things, we inspire you to try finding them here in our shop!

You also prefer sharing to selling? You can't stand to see food in trash containers? You agree that it is unnecessary to produce and produce endlessly as long as we can reuse our existing goods? Then we have good news for you!
Trial&Error is a supporter of Foodsharing, which means, we pick up bread and bakery products every Tuesday to save them from the trash and share them with YOU.

Recycled Creativity 

The last festival of the summer has an own Throwaway Society with creative workshops, films, discussions and music. Remains of plastic, electronics and paper is being transformed through creative ideas into new useful, funny or simply beautiful items. Recycling also works just as well with music and film material. In this year artists, volunteers and young people from diverse backgrounds realize the festival with their own interpretations of recycling.
