We’ve all been there: you’re in a rush, hungry and decide to pick up some food on your way to school or the office, eat really fast, and before you know it there’s a pile of waste in front of you. A plastic container, plastic cutlery, plastic wrapping, a paper cup with a plastic lid, napkins, ketchup and mayonnaise sachets, all delivered in a plastic bag. Not even 20 minutes of use, but unfortunately, most of that waste won’t biodegrade in at least 300 years. Can’t it be done differently, if we just put in a little more effort?
The Green Office is introducing its Stick to Reusables project with the purpose of motivating people to reduce their single-use recipients, besides raising awareness on the waste global issues, and sharing experiences, easy tips and support on how simple swaps can impact not only our waste production, but our communities, and why not someday, the world.
