Office supply kit

| January 28, 2021

At the museum, who needs 10 pens and 5 pencils at the same time? Unlimited office supplies, pencils in drawers, pens left all over the office… It’s all over at the Juno Beach Centre.

At the start of the year, Sophie Mirey, Deputy Director, made an inventory of everything she had in stock, she placed an order for shortages for the year and she prepared the “kit” for each JBC staff. Each “kit” contains what is needed for the year, and Sophie empowered everyone with the message that from now on everyone will have the bare essentials.

Another gesture in favour of reasoned purchases, reduction of waste and an invitation to reflect on our ways of consuming and using equipment.
