I loved it!” Could he imagine going back on the show? “Yeah, sure,” he replies.

Living sustainably: Alvaro Soler advises you to start with your diet
Alvaro Soler has not only worked on new music in the past few years, he has also written: In September he published his first book “El Mismo Sol – Under the same sun”. “I wrote about my experience with other cultures and music that will surprise many. Everything that defines me is in this book,” the singer reveals in advance. Among other things, what makes him stand out is his commitment to sustainability and the environment. According to Soler, every individual can do “a lot” to live more sustainably.
“I would start with the diet,” he advises. “Choose exactly what you eat and, if you can, find out where it comes from.” You should also “find out what is really sustainable and what is not”. His other tips are to buy second-hand clothes, reduce plastic and ride bikes more. How does he make his own life more sustainable and environmentally friendly? “I don’t have a car in Berlin and almost only ride my bike or, if the weather doesn’t allow it, I use car sharing or e-scooters,” explains Soler.
The singer “very often only buys second-hand clothes, also because I find them more beautiful than the new ones”. So this is a “win-win situation”. He also eats well: Soler eats meat and fish “actually only if I know the quality, and I occasionally collect plastic on the beach”. There are “1,000 things that can be done!”.
