3…0 is a magic numberPublished: 2019-07-23 08:08
Actually it’s just a number. But when it comes to numbers, it can be way beyond a graphic collection of curved lines. They can represent something. A bunch of colorful shades, meaningful memories or a milestone in our life path. That’s the magic of numbers.
30 can be an age: the one I have recently approached. But it hides so many years of experiences, words, smiles, thoughts, people, tears.. Basically the reasons why I am who I am. It can symbolize much more than just an age. They literally flew and I appreciate what they brought me: more consciousness, self-confidence and strength. Compared to the “black or white” idealism of my 20s, 30s presented me the gift of all the wonderful shades in between. A couple of fine lines around my eyes? They worth the price.
Looking around, I can see that it’s a turning point for many of us: someone decides to take the next step in their career, somebody else sows the seed of their own family and others “simply” take a new direction by changing an ordinary element of their everyday life. Astonishing decisions that revolutionize one’s existence, making the future happen.
They say that we are like wine: the older we grow, the better we are. If I were a bottle of Chianti, I could probably cost few hundreds of euros. Not bad for a three decades aged woman, eller hur?
30 seems to be a trendy unit of measure for humans to divide their time: in fact we use 30 to chant hours or an average of 30 days to cadence our months. But.. 30 weeks from the beginning of the year: what can they hide? Good things that Essity has done so far, for example.
One above all is an extraordinary project that has been implemented by my marvelous colleagues.
2019 seems to me an year characterized by a broad global attention to sensitive topics related to the future of our planet such as global warming, pollution, recycling chains and packing materials.
Essity committed to work with the Sustainable Development Goals spread out by the United Nations, focusing on the following:
Inspiration and dedication can be perceived through the words of Product Sustainability, Quality & Environment and Global Communication departments´spokepeople. Check them out in this video!
The ambitious target is a production system that uses less resources and reduces our impact on the environment by 2030. Bellissimo!
So, let´s take advantage of the above mentioned bottle of Chianti to drink a toast: this powerful project is the perfect reason.
And given that it´s vacation time, look at the bright side of these incredible 30 degrees Celsius: we can enjoy a quite warm Swedish summer or imagine to be laying on a green field in the Chianti area by closing our eyes while chilling on the office terrace during a break. Ok – at least just pretend.
What is left for me to say is only a sincere wish for you out there and an exhortation: don´t let anybody take your personal summer away… especially the one you have inside.
Cheers and Buona Estate!
