It was released recently that we only have 12 years to change the planet, this resulted in a lot of action around the world, and I thought it would good for Nomad to be part of this.
60% of the population relies on fish as their main source of protein and the ocean provides 50% of our oxygen. Currently there is 8 million tonnes of plastic dumped in the ocean each year, this impacts 700 different species, they ingest plastic, mistaking it for food. This also impacts humans; microplastics have been found in the air in our food and in our drinking water.
The ‘top 4 culprits’ are plastic straws, plastic bottles, plastic coffee cups and plastic bags. So, I decided to try and to reduce the amount of these my colleagues use. When you start at Nomad you are given a reusable cotton goody bag containing: a reusable drinking bottle and coffee cup.
