People will be taking their drinks, snacks, and outdoor essentials on the go with them outside, meaning that they’ll be using a bag when packing up for the day or grabbing a bag at the store when they pick up their essentials.

This is a huge undertaking and will hopefully result in reduced waste across the country! Continue reading

It’s been over 2 years since the pandemic started (how crazy is that?!) when millions of people were sent home from the office and began working from home.

How do you engage with employees outside of the office to make them feel valued and seen? How do you create a strong company culture and instill the company’s values virtually instead of in-person?
