The brown-bag lunches provided at the Midi MINATEC lunch talks no longer come with bottled water. The new measure came into force on September 20 and will eliminate 7,000 single-use plastic bottles per year! While this may seem tiny on a planetary scale, every little bit helps.
To raise awareness of this environmentally-responsible initiative, 1,000 reusable glass water bottles with neoprene sleeves emblazoned with the MINATEC name will gradually be given out to attendees and—of course—speakers.
As you are probably aware, the Grenoble area has exceptionally high quality drinking water and 95% of local inhabitants trust the local water supply. With that in mind, there’s no reason not to fill up on the go!
