SINGLE USE PLASTICS seem like a necessity right now, and to an extent, we have to make sure we’re looking out for our health. with that said, what we can do is use products that can be recycled or composted. @allpressespresso, @camposcoffee and @thelittlemarionette all have sustainable options for their single-use cups. if you can, support a business that uses recyclables!

Rising seas could affect three times more people by 2050 than previously thought, threatening to inundate Bangkok, Shanghai, Ho Chi Minh City and other major coastal cities, according to new calculations by the U.S.-based science organization Climate Central.

Pens and stationary make up a large amount of the school's plastic waste. There are now designated recycling boxes, located in each senior school staffroom and common room – specifically for used pens, pencils and whiteboard markers.
