Today I’m giving away this water bottle that I got in a Swag bag when I attended the induction of my friends Janet Kestin and Nancy Vonk into the Marketing Hall of Legends. This accolade was long overdue and much celebrated by all of their friends, industry colleagues and their famillies. Relieving myself of this bottle has nothing to do with my enthusiasm for their recognition. They both gave awesome speeches and so did the other inductees. It’s a great thing to see people recognized for doing impressive work, it doesn’t happen nearly often enough.
I don’t want the bottle because I already have many (we may see more here before the year is out) and I don’t like plastic. I’m actually trying to reduce the plastic in my life in other ways as well. It’s the scourge of oceans, continents and pretty much the whole natural world. We are so incredibly dependant on plastic, the little things we can do must be encouraged.
I was going to put this in the Goodwill box, but I checked and I’m pretty sure it’s recyclable so it’s going in the blue bin.
