At Huskee, we believe in taking small steps that lead to big differences in creating a more sustainable world. As the world faces a plastic crisis, we want our customers to be part of the solution. July is a special month, as it is Plastic Free July, a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. In this blog post, we will outline some simple, yet effective steps that Huskee customers can take to live a more sustainable life that aligns with the theme of Small Steps, Big Difference.
1. Say No to Single-Use items
From disposable coffee cups to plastic cutlery, single-use plastics are a major contributor to the plastic crisis. You can take a stand against single-use plastics by simply saying no. Bring your own reusable coffee cup (you can find some of our favourites here) when you buy your morning coffee, pack your lunch in reusable containers, and skip the plastic cutlery when eating out. By doing so, you’ll reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfill.
2. Reduce Food Waste
Food waste is not only a waste of money, but it also has a significant impact on the environment. When food waste ends up in landfills, it releases methane gas, which is a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. To reduce food waste, Huskee customers can plan their meals, shop with a list, and store food properly. Leftovers can be frozen or repurposed into new dishes.
3. Bring Your Own Cup and Straws
In a world where disposable cups and straws are the norm, bringing your own reusable cups and straws can make a huge difference. At Huskee, we offer stylish and sustainable coffee cups made from repurposed coffee husks. Our cups are not only good for the environment, but they are also durable, stylish, and easy to clean. So, whether you’re grabbing a cup of coffee on your way to work or sipping on your favourite smoothie, bring your own HuskeeCup and be part of the solution.
4. Choose Sustainable Products
From clothing to cleaning products, you can make a difference by choosing sustainable products. Look for products that are made from natural materials, are durable, and can be recycled or repurposed. By making intentional choices, you can support companies that are committed to sustainability and reduce their impact on the environment.
5. Educate Others
Small steps can lead to big differences, and you can inspire others to join the movement towards sustainability. Educate your family, friends, and co-workers about the importance of living a sustainable life and how small changes can make a big impact. Share your experiences, be a role model, and encourage others to take action.
At Huskee, we believe that sustainability is not a choice, but a responsibility. You can take actionable steps towards a more sustainable life by taking small steps that lead to big differences. By bringing your own cups and straws, saying no to single-use plastics, reducing food waste, choosing sustainable products, and educating others, you can be part of the solution. Let’s take small steps together and make a big impact on the world.
