As we can see there is still a lot that needs to be done. But we can start by making some changes and really looking at what we’re using and why and how we’re disposing of it.

In Germany TerraCycle is collecting pens/biros, so I’ll start collecting old ones separately an to ship them to TerraCycle once a year. I’ll also see if there are more options in Berlin, so that I can do my part to reducing waste. If you know of any great initiatives, please share in the comments!
