Although you can find short introductions of our team members on the “About us” page, we thought it was about time for you to get to know us a bit better. Last time, Charissa told you all about her life. This week, Gabriele will take you along on his journey at Byewaste, sharing his vision on sustainability and our company.
Hi there! Who are you? Tell us something about yourself!
Hi! I’m Gabriele, working as a Marketing Specialist for Byewaste.
I have been living in Amsterdam for 4 years while also spending a lot of time in Italy. I’ve always been passionate about digital startups and marketing strategies. I love discovering new cultures and I’ve been living in different countries, such as Albania, USA, Australia, and Portugal before coming to the Netherlands. I’m into Techno music, I enjoy going to rave parties and listening to it because it is so exciting. I like to practice sports and one of my favourites is kickboxing.
What do you do at Byewaste?
I’m a Marketing Specialist, responsible for planning and executing advertising campaigns, defining strategies and targeting the demographic data of our audience. Being part of the marketing team, my focus is to achieve success and raise awareness as well as working alongside the Sales Team.
How did you end up at Byewaste?
Why did you want to work for the company?
What do you like most about your job?
And what do you like least about it?
Why do you think that people should start recycling and reusing more?
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
It’s more than a mantra, it’s what we need to do to slow down the frightening pace of climate change. Unfortunately, not everything can be recycled so we need to keep attention to our choices and decide reasonably when throwing something away.
What is the nicest item that you have ever thrifted?
When would you have especially benefited from a service like Byewaste yourself?
How are you contributing to a more sustainable future in your personal life?
I always keep attention to recycling, use as little water as possible and privilege more sustainable products when I’m doing my grocery. I prefer glass to plastic and organic food to the regular one. I try to eat seasonal vegetables and keep a limited consumption of meat. I also invite people to do so by explaining the positive impact of the small actions we take.
Which sustainable habit would you like to apply in your daily life?
Meat producing industries are the most ecologically harmful businesses on the earth. They result in massive amounts of water wastage, habitat destruction, pollution and greenhouse gases emission, and of course slaughtering of animals. My biggest goal would be to eliminate meat consumption by moving to vegan alternatives, which are now an excellent replacement, especially when compared to a few years ago.
