Various city institutions use receipts made of white thermal paper. These contain bisphenol S (BPS). Although there are no comprehensive studies on the health hazards of BPS, serious consequences can be assumed for the entire group of bisphenols. The chemical also prevents recycling of the paper. With this motion (NR.424), we are therefore initiating a switch to blue thermal paper, which is better for humans and nature in every respect.
Municipal Receipts – Without Risk to Health and Environment
Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
