Increasing durable consumption - MEK/The Finnish Tourist Board

Increasing durable consumption and saving money - The Finnish Tourist Board, Green Office example 2013 


In order to reduce the amount of waste in our office, the Finnish Tourist Board (MEK) made an agreement with a nearby cafeteria on the use of plastic containers. When our staff picks up lunch from the cafeteria using reusable containers, the 10th meal picked up is free.

This benefits everyone involved: the restaurant saves money when they don’t need to use so many disposable containers, the Finnish Tourist Board generates less waste and people save money with free meals.
