#12: Out with the New
Our co-founder Celine got married this weekend and we danced so hard I needed an extra day of recovery…….so please accept my apology for the delay of this week’s newsletter, but check out how much fun Team Beni had celebrating together 🎉. Special congrats to Celine and Conrad!
What you’ll see today:
No more single-use headphones on planes!
The best beni finds of the week (in celebration of PRIDE)
Is secondhand really an accessible alternative to fast fashion?
The nuances of calculating our impact (part 1 and part 2)
✈️ Reflections from my flight home from California…
For the very first time I had the ability to connect my headphones to the entertainment through bluetooth on my flight home. Anyone else experience this? Am I super late to this party?
Anyways, it was one of those ah-ha moments for me.
We talk about how sustainability often requires a bunch of different pieces of the puzzle to come together in order to actually work (think about recyclable cups + clearly labeled recycling bins in accessible places).
Well, this was the perfect example!
While it took time for there to be wide enough adoption of wireless headphones for this technology to make its way up the priority list for airlines, we’re finally at a tipping point. And that tipping point means we get the opportunity to stop the crazy amounts of waste we created by handing out single use (and quite uncomfortable) plastic headphones on long-haul plane rides and instead let people use their own headphones.
A win for the planet and a win for your ears! Bravo, United!
