Let's be the change

If you live on Planet Earth, you have to be familiar with our little COVID-19 situation. With lockdowns going on everywhere around the world, the economy is going down the drain so it is more important than ever to support small businesses owners and local brands. Not only because they need us but because this crisis is also the best opportunity we have to reshape the world the way we want it.

Dolphins are returning to Venice, wild animals walk around cities and carbon emissions are going down, everything  seems to be going well for the planet right now, but this is only the calm before the storm. Governments will try to restart the economy at all costs, which means they will favour highly profitable carbon intensive industries and step back from their environmental commitments. Keep in mind we are talking about the same politicians who had 3 months to prepare for a pandemic but didn't. We may not have a say in their policies, but we are the economy. We vote with our money and without us, there is no industry big enough to resist.

This is why I have decided to introduce something new to TheAlblog. From now on, I will be interviewing game changers who decided to start their own company and do things differently.

I hope you will enjoy it!

See you soon,

How to make your office greener with 38 ideas


My Instagram poll has spoken! You all seemed to be super interested in an article about making the workplace a little more sustainable. I'm not talking about completely changing company policy (though if you are in high management and reading this, kudos to you!) but rather about everyday changes that can make a difference if we all embrace them. It makes sense considering we spend most of our time there. To make it easier, how about starting a sustainability team with your favourite co-workers?
