You are in a rush, starving and decide to pick up some food in the way to school or office, eat really fast, and before you notice 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. This and similar scenarios repeat every day thousands and thousands of times, so naturally that imagining even a different reality can be difficult.
The Green Office is soon 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. Stay tuned to learn more!
