"Planet or Plastic? is National Geographic’s multiyear effort to raise awareness about the global plastic trash crisis. Come to this page often to learn more, find out what you can do to reduce your own single-use plastics and take your pledge."  https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/planetorplastic/ 


Just Monday this week my company decided to support the Planet or Plastic? initiative for all German locations with more than 10k employees in total. Looking at e.g. the THE DISPOSABLE COFFEE CUP PROBLEM - LOTS OF WASTE, FOR A GREAT TASTE  https://oneplanetzero.com/blogs/news/10-reasons-you-should-stop-using-disposable-coffee-cups   you can read dramatic numbers.

Everything should be done to reduce the numbers - select other materials than plastic, reuse cups, ..., and so on. 

Why not even taking a more drastic approach and change from the coffee-to-go to a coffee-to-stay mindset? Yesterday's New work, could also mean enjoying your life balance NOW. 

  • Reduce stress and hectic by sitting down for a coffee, relax ...
  • Take quality time with your colleagues during a coffee
  • Stop drinking coffee in public transport systems, cars, etc. --> a lot of people are complaining about the use of mobile phones in public - treat coffee cup usage the same way 😉
