Eco-responsible habits are greatly promoted in our office and since we are aware that changes take place collectively, one gesture at a time, we have made it our mission to transmit our eco-responsible values to our employees. With sanitary measures requiring most of our employees to stay at home, we wanted to know what they were using on a daily basis in order to continue their good habits from the office. So, here are 5 interesting responses we received:
