Fast enough, or moving too fast actually

Sep 24 / Eva Lagarde

I don’t know about you but September is just CRAZYYYY!

The summer was relatively smooth so I wasn’t expecting the influx of activity. I feel like my feet don’t touch the ground anymore!

Now that events have started again, I feel that we have a big FOMO! And everyone is rushing to get things done, to attend the right thing, be at the right place and move, move, move as fast a possible

But hold on a minute!
Do we still have time to think?
Can we still take some perspective?

With re-sources, we want to give you the time and place to take a step back, and get perspective on your product development. There are so many solutions about sustainability, that there's many ways to lose your “way”.

We have built an 8-week course to decipher sustainability, innovations and product development. So you get the power back into your hands. Get unbiased, fact-check information about choices that are better for the planet and for your brand.
Don’t take our word for it! Read what our subscribers said.

“I am really happy with the quality and amount of content that you put together. I have been researching sustainable packaging for a couple of years, it has been quite the journey, but I am really happy to see how fast it is moving over the last year or so and I'm really grateful for the work that you have done in putting all the information together (it was so hard finding sources that were not biased or contradictory). I feel I have such a better understanding now of where we are at exactly and the real challenges ahead. I also feel very confident that we will get there :)” Yasmina Liebel, brand owner.
